      Statue of the Archangel Michael is in Donetsk near Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral. The sculpture is made of bronze in the form of a young man in full growth in a wide canopy, in his hand a sword and shield.

      Interested in the history of this monument. At first it was installed in Kiev, for the Archangel Michael is the patron saint of the Ukrainian capital. The sculpture was located at the Independence Square, she stood on the high column of white marble, which was specially brought from Italy. Author - the sculpture is G.Kuravsky. In 2001, the statue was removed from the area, but at the request of residents and clergy decided to bring it back. When installing the sculpture of the archangel had a face maimed several people stumbling, which tumbled from the pedestal. Decided to donate the sculpture Donetsk, Kiev and in its place was put a monument with a globe.

      So in 2002 a bronze archangel Michael appeared in Donetsk at the entrance to the cathedral. In his pedestal is an inscription-prayer in the Ukrainian language.
