    The monument “300 years of the Russian Fleet,” which is better known as the Peter the Great Statue in Moscow, was built by Zurab Tsereteli in 1997 upon the order of the Moscow government on the elongated island formed between the Moscow River and the Obvodny canal. On September 28, 2010 when Yury Luzhkov was dismissed as Moscow mayor, gallery owner Marat Gelman said the monument could be demolished. On October 4, Acting Moscow Mayor Vladimir Resin suggested transferring the monument to another site.
