Starobilsk Revolution Regiment monument was unveiled on April 27, 1973 at the entrance to the city park. You can see a map on the pillar next to the statue. The map depicts the battle route of Starobilsk Revolution regiment headed by Samuel Kovalenko in 1918-1920.
You can see the statue of a soldier with a rifle in his hand. The soldier has a box on his belt. That box is the reason the locals nicknamed the entire monument A Soldier with a Mobile Phone. The small box (with bullets?) does look very similar to a mobile phone case we wear nowadays.
Sculptor H.Smishny and architect A.Zhitomirsky are the authors of the monument.

Directions: At the entrance to the city park
