Monuments to Russian actors and their roles

November 15, 2013, on the Metallurgist avenue appeared a monument to the hero of the film “Spring on Zarechnaya Street” – steelmaker Sasha Savchenko. A smiling fellow in a jacket thrown on his shoulder sits on the edge of a bench. And anyone can sit next to him – take pictures, dream, remember youth … In addition, the lamp is with a surprise: if a passer-by sits down on the bench, a melody of the song “When spring comes – I do not know …” sounds from the loudspeaker stylized in the middle of the last century.
In fact, the filming of “Spring on Zarechnaya Street” took place in Zaporozhye – at a metallurgical plant. Since then, the song from the film has become an unofficial anthem of the city. The sculptural and decorative composition was created and installed on the initiative and for the funds of Zaporizhstal, which celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2013. The author of the composition – artist and restorer Tigran Hakobyan.
Unfortunately, nationalist-minded extremists with shouts “Glory to Ukraine”, smashed a metal sculpture. The monument to the “steelmaker Sasha”, opened on November 15, 2013 lived only 1 year.
