The current Lenin Square monument that the Ryazan people know well was authored by Matvey_Manizer
and dates back to 1957. It was initially intended for a Primorye Territory town, so its base resembles a ship's bow. However, for reasons unknown, the town rejected the monument, and it passed to Ryazan. To make room for the monument, the city authorities demolished two transverse shopping buildings in the western part of the square.
