Nothing particularly remarkable about this monument to Lenin — the same as in hundreds of Russian cities in the recent past. In addition to the history with the removing from the former place near the square of his name, disproportionately large for such a provincial town as Borovsk. On the day of removal local activists of communist party protesteded and staged the actions of civil disobedience. Then it turned out that the monument stood on the graves arranged here almost five centuries ago, all of which in turn "belonged" to the cemetery near wooden church of Paraskeva Pyatnitsa, standing on this site earlier.
It is not clear what caused such a strong reaction from the communists. In the town there is another statue of Lenin, made almost as a replica of this one — Lenin indicates somewhere to the right. The only difference consists in clothes, one Lenin wears a coat, another - jacket.
