MOSCOW, July 30. /TASS/. More than half the people of Moscow would prefer that a park and fountain were constructed rather than have the statue of Bolshevik leader "Iron" Felix Dzerzhinsky (founder of the Soviet secret police) restored on the capital's Lubyanka Square, an opinion poll suggests.
Findings published by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center on Thursday say 56% of respondents wanted a pedestrianised park leading from Detsky Mir children's store to the Polytechnic Museum, a scheme proposed by the United Russia political party.
Thirty-seven percent of those asked backed the Communist Party's idea of returning Dzerzhinsky’s monument to Lubyanka. Moscow had plenty of monuments already, said two percent of the 1,200 people surveyed in three days from July 23.
