Historical note: July 15, 1927 at the Paris Commune Square in Yekaterinburg was a monument to the well-known political figure Yakov Sverdlov.

Personality Yakov Sverdlov with confidence can be called outstanding and unsolved to this day - until now historians have not come to a definite opinion about its activities, but most confidently speak of it as the Gray Cardinal of the Russian revolution. As the third man in the Bolshevik Party, he chose not to appear at the earliest opportunity to the public, and to rule "behind the scenes": being in 1905 in Yekaterinburg, he rallied around him clandestine workers who had influence over the proletariat, as well as participated in the preparation of the execution of the royal family.

In the early twenties of the last century on the initiative of the Bolsheviks passed a nationwide collection of money for the installation of a commemorative sculpture of Yakov Sverdlov, which later at the Leningrad plant "Red Vyborzhets" and was cast monument.

City Ekaterinburg from 1924 to 1991 bore the name of Sverdlovsk, in honor of Yakov Sverdlov.

From me: Monument interesting but pose Sverdlov always produced a lot of jokes and anecdotes, even during the Soviet era. I have my own version — the monument seems to be saying to us: «I am innocent in all this ugliness, Citizens Judges. That's all they are: Vovka, Levka and Joseph screwed up, and I even was not there».
