The "Cossacks" plan to put a monument to Vladimir Putin and Petr Krasnov, Don Cossack's Ataman on a private land in St. Petersburg.

The Orthodox "Cossack Ataman" of IRBIS society, Andrey Polyakov announced that a monument should be erected for Putin to thank him for the "revival of the Russian Empire," announced the author of the idea in the air of "Echo St. Petersburg."

"Putin is a man who restores the Russian Empire, returns our lost territory and creates powerful Armed Forces. This is a rare person who is worthy of the monument during his lifetime. And Ataman Krasnov is a hero and martyr. And to put a monument to Krasnov at his home – is our duty,"- announced Polyakov.

"He (Polyakov - Ed.) does not see it as a problem that Pyotr Krasnov was a Nazi collaborator during the Second World War and was the head of the so-called "Cossack troops in the occupied eastern territories of Germany," – emphasizes the "Echo of St. Petersburg".

According to the Cossacks chiefs' plan, the monument will repeat in miniature the Potemkin Stairs in Odessa, where Putin and Krasnov will look at each other.
