The monument to nikolai zhukov russia
Russia

Памятник Николаю Николаевичу Жукову (1908 – 1973) – народному художнику СССР, члену-корреспонденту Академии художеств СССР, Почетному гражданину города Ельца, был открыт 12 сентября 2008 года накануне 100-летия со дня его рождения. Автором скульптурной композиции стал Александр Таратынов. Монумент удачно вписался в ансамбль старинной Торговой улицы (современной улицы Мира): на скамейке молодой Жуков рисует с натуры дочь Арину, а рядом стоит мальчик – Никита Михалков, сын друга художника - Сергея Михалкова.

More About Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.Check out what's happening north of Mongolia these days, in ChitaAlthough you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers.
