Another bronze monument to M.I. Platov, this time the equestrian one, that is more natural for the legendary Cossack Hero, was erected in Novocherkassk at the central avenue, named after him as Platovsky, in front of the Army Assumption Cathedral on August 23, 2003. The monument grand opening was dedicated to the M.I. Platov’s 250th anniversary celebration. The author of the new M.I. Platov monument was a famous sculptor A.A. Sknarin. The memorable metal plate was fixed at the back side of the monument.
