Sergei Konyukhov: The monument to Herman of Alaska was built thanks to the indifference of Kadom residents

On August 11, during a visit to the Kadomsky District, the Acting Governor of the Ryazan Region, Pavel Malkov, examined public spaces landscaped under the Comfortable Urban Environment program, and a monument to Herman of Alaska.

Sergey Konyukhov, Director of the Kadomsky Historical and Local Lore Center:

“Last year, a monument to Reverend Herman of Alaska, our countryman, was erected in the center of Kadom, and the surrounding area was landscaped.

This was preceded by a lot of preliminary work. At one time, we applied to the regional government and the regional Duma with a request to perpetuate the memory of the holy native of Kadom land. Our request was supported, this project was included in the Comfortable Urban Environment program, and funds were allocated.

For almost a year, in the homeland of Herman of Alaska, there has been a monument to a man who was born in the Ryazan outback and is known as the first Orthodox saint of Russian America. All this is due to the indifference of local residents and the great support of the regional government.”
