Director of the Siberian Center for the Promotion of Architecture Tatiana Ivanenko wrote about this on her Facebook page.
She clarified that, as a rule, when submitting an application for the installation of a monument, they also attach a historical certificate of the person whose name is planned to be immortalized. In this case, the certificate came quite interesting, she stressed. “For example, the applicant did not mention that in 1937-1938 Roman Rudenko was a member of the special troika of the NKVD, and in the 70s he prepared documents for the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee on the persecution of dissidents”, - Tatyana Ivanenko wrote.
Members of the Novosibirsk Art Council, which decides on the installation of the monument, were asked to "close their eyes" to this and pay attention to the beauty of the bust proposed for installation. The Arts Council opposed the installation of such a monument in the city.
At the same time, the idea of installing it has not yet been abandoned. As the chief architect of the city, Alexander Lozhkin, commented on Sibkray.ru, now they plan to finalize the bust project and again submit it for approval to the artistic council.
Roman Rudenko was the prosecutor of the Donetsk region. His name appeared in the order of the NKVD dated July 30, 1937 No. 00447, which repressed "kulaks, criminals and other anti-Soviet elements". According to Kommersant, 82.7 thousand people were sentenced to death then and another 193.4 thousand were sent into exile.
