Marshal Georgy Zhukov Monument (December 2011)

Standing outside the front of the State History Museum is a statue of Marshal Georgi Zhukov. Zhukov was Marshal of the Soviet Union and one of the most famous military leaders of any country during the Second World War. This statue of him was unveiled in 1995 and is the work of the well-known sculptor Vyacheslav Klykov. Zhukov is depicted on horseback (some say rather awkwardly) trampling over Nazi banners.
