* Monument to Minin and Pozharsky is a bronze statue on Red Square of Moscow, Russia in front of Saint Basil's Cathedral. The statue commemorates prince Dmitry Pozharsky and Kuzma Minin, who gathered the all-Russian volunteer army and expelled the forces of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from Moscow, thus putting an end to the Time of Troubles in 1612. Designed by the architect Ivan Martos, it was erected in 1818 and became Russia's first monumental sculpture. The pediment is inscribed with the words: "To Citizen Minin and Prince Pozharsky, from a grateful Russia".
