Peter to Stay in Moscow
Only 14% of Muscovites polled by the All-Russian Center of Public Opinion Polls (VTSIOM) said they favored the dismantling of Zurab Tsereteli’s colossal statue of Peter the Great. This according to the public commission formed to decide the statue’s fate. As an overwhelming majority of Muscovites said the monument should stay, the commission decided against holding a referendum on the monument. “As far as we’re concerned, the case is closed,” said the commission’s chairman, well-known TV journalist Yury Senkevich.
