The symbol of Vladivostok gave a crack

In the monument to the Fighters for Soviet Power in the Far East, which is considered one of the symbols of the city, a crack has formed in the pedestal.

As explained in the management of culture of Vladivostok, experts decide what measures need to be taken to preserve the monument. According to preliminary versions, the crack could have been formed due to groundwater, new structures in the central square, the increased flow of cars over the years. In addition, during the repair, carried out at the beginning of 1990-s, the monument's drainage system was broken, because of this, the granite slabs of the central pedestal began to diverge, and the pedestal had to be sealed with steel hoops. In 2010, the last so far large-scale restoration of the monument was carried out.

The monument "Fighters for Soviet Power in the Far East", created by sculptor Alexander Tenet, was unveiled in April 1961. The central part of the monument is a high pedestal on which at the height of 30 meters there is a figure of a soldier of the People’s Revolutionary Army with a flying banner in its right hand and a battle tube in its left, two multi-figured sculptural groups are installed on both sides of the central pedestal.
