  Zhukov statue
by TheWanderingCamel

The northern approach to Red Square is a lively area where there always seems to be a crowd and something going on. Overlooking it all is the mounted statue of Marshall Zhukov, the USSR's wartime hero who accepted the surrender of Berlin, captured here in bronze just as he looked when he led the army in to Red Square for the Victory Parade at the end of WWII, or, as it is known in Russia -The Great Patriotic War.
