ORYOL, November 24. /TASS/. An Oryol district court has turned down a suit lodged by local lawmaker Yuri Malyutin insisting on unlawfulness of the installation of Russia’s first monument to Czar Ivan the Terrible, one of the most controversial figures in Russia’s entire history, in the protected area.
"Having heard the sides and studies the materials of the case, having heard an expert, the court turned down the suit demanding demolition of the monument to Ivan the Terrible," the press service of Oryol’s Zavodskoi district court said on Thursday.
The court ruled that the monument is located outside the boundaries of the Detinets archaeological monument in Oryol’s kremlin adjacent to the Epiphany Church. Hence, according to the court, the procedure of the issuance of a permission to place the monument at this site was not violated. "The complainant’s allegations that the monument is located inside the protected area of the Epiphany Church, a cultural heritage site, were not substantiated during the litigation as the border of the protected area is not established in the due order," the court said.
According to earlier reports, this was Milyutin’s second lawsuit concerning this monument. In his first claim, Milyutin protested against placing the monument near the building of the Svobodnoye Prostranstvo (Free Space) youth theatre [as this building is located within the protected area of Oryol’s town hall building, a cultural heritage site - TASS]. Later, the local legislature voted for allocating a land plot near the Epiphany Church where the monument was finally opened on October 14.
Malyutin’s first lawsuit was also turned down by a court ruling.
