(Russia)

(Russia)

Whoever Dzerzhinsky may be, it is a monument to an era of Russian history that we cannot reject

36

29

It is the restoration of historical justice to one of the most prominent Soviet figures in the name of Soviet power, who did much good in his time

25

22

The monument was designed by a well-known sculptor and has great cultural and artistic significance

7

The monument fits well in Lyubyanka Square and, without it, the square seems empty

Other reasons “for”

It would be offensive to the memory of victims of the Communist Regime

3

Dzerzhinsky is not the kind of man for whom we should build a monument; he brought much evil to Russia

6

It would contradict the principles of democracy and freedom, for which the people of Moscow fought in the 1991 putsch
