Solzhenitsyn deserves a monument, Museum and memorial apartment

In 2018 it will be 100 years since the birth of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Even when Luzhkov wanted to open a memorial apartment of the writer, but to the last day someone put a spoke in the wheel. Today at a meeting of the organizational Committee on preparation and holding celebrations announced that finally a memorial apartment on Tverskaya will open, and along with it the Museum in Ryazan and the monument to Solzhenitsyn in Moscow. It will install in the square between the houses 11 and 13 on the street named after the writer.

– The sculptor is not yet known, says the writer’s widow Natalya Solzhenitsyn. The author of the monument will choose on competition is a question of far future. But I hope that our plans will not be delayed for many years. And many accuse us of haste, although Luzhkov gave the order to do memorial apartment on Tverskaya, only because there were belongings of the writer. There we lived until the expulsion of Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1974), and after our return, and to this day there is a charity Fund Solzhenitsyn.

The wording “MK” hopes that this time it will not lay in a drawer.
