This bronze statue on Red Square of Moscow created by sculptor Ivan Martos is located right in front of Saint Basil´s Cathedral. The statue commemorates prince Dmitry Pozharsky and Kuzma Minin, who gathered the all-Russian volunteer army and expelled the Poles from the Moscow Kremlin in 1612.
The monument was conceived to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the events, but in the wake of Napoleon´s invasion of Russia, the monument could not be unveiled until 1818.
