There was statue of Vytautas Putna, on my picture, in the Grutas Park. He was the Soviet Army activist and took the leading role in army, awarded the Order of the Red Banner.

In March 1921, the division under his command, repressed the revolt of Kronshtadt, hundreds of mutinous sailors and soldiers were killed. Since 1927 he was a military attache of the Soviet Union in different states and organized reconaissance work. In 1937, when stalinist refinement of army took place, he was recalled from London to Moscow and shot dead.
