195 years ago today, on March 4, 1818, the monument to Kuzma Minin and Prince Pozharsky was installed on Red Square. The bronze monument depicts the moment in the 17th century when Minin, standing, appeals to the wounded Pozharsky to lead the Russian army in expelling the invading Polish forces from Moscow.
