The Ministry of Culture will offer museums to take patronage over the graves of famous figures

The Russian Ministry of Culture believes that museums can take on the responsibility of caring for the graves of famous people. As an example, the Russian National Museum of Music is cited, which has already managed to take patronage over the grave of such a person - Fyodor Chaliapin.

Vladislav Kononov, director of the department of museums of this department, said that the Ministry of Culture has initiated a campaign among the institutions under its jurisdiction to take patronage over the graves. This refers to the graves of people from among the workers of art and culture, the chairmen of the committee on culture, starting from 1802. He also said that the Russian National Museum of Music, currently headed by Mikhail Bryzgalov, had already taken care of the care of the grave of Fyodor Chaliapin, which is located at the Novodevichy Cemetery. In the near future, representatives of this museum are planning to transform the burial place of the famous artist.

Kononov also said that in the spring the executive directorate of the Russian Military Historical Society, chaired by Vladimir Medinsky, decided to take care of the grave of Yekaterina Furtseva, who at one time held the post of Minister of Culture of the USSR. After the patronage was taken, on this grave, where no one had been for a long time and no one looked after it, work was carried out to transform it. Everything was done without the involvement of the media and without photographs, which could then be boasted. All such work is carried out solely in order to honor the memory of people involved in Soviet and Russian culture.

The Department of Museums of the Russian Ministry of Culture on September 20, together with representatives of some museums, arrived at the Kuntsevo cemetery. As a result of this visit, the grave of Polikarp Ivanovich Lebedev, director of the Tretyakov Gallery and chairman of the committee under the Council of Ministers of the USSR responsible for issues in the field of art, was put in order.

There is a hope that soon different cultural institutions will join this action. The Ministry of Culture expects that compatriots who live outside Russia will also not remain indifferent, because the graves of many Russian artists are located outside the Russian Federation. In this matter, the department still counts on support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
