The monument to marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Zhukov, the most notable commander in World War II due to the number and scale of victories, decorated for celebration of the 70th anniversary of Great Victory over Nazi Germany with tall red banners and the years of the Great Patriotic war 1941 – 1945.

The monument was unveiled in front of State Historical museum from the side of Manezhnaya square in 1995 in honor of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Great Victory over Nazi Germany. The statue of Zhukov shows the ruthless commander-in-chief, three time Hero of the Soviet Union, on horseback as he appeared at the 1945 victory parade. His horse stepping on captured Nazi regimental standards which were flung down in front of Lenin's Tomb by honored officers and soldiers.
