Unveiling of the monument to Borys Grinchenko

August 22, 2011 in the square next to the administrative building of Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University at 18/2 Bulvarno-Kudryavska Street was unveiled a monument to Borys Grinchenko (sculptor Mykola Obeziuk, architect Mykola Bosenko).

For many generations, the life and work of Borys Grinchenko (1863-1910) is an effective example of genuine patriotism and asceticism in Ukrainian education and culture. Working for the people was the highest meaning and vocation of their lives. Borys Grinchenko never skimped on his own money to publish books for the people and spread education.

With the unveiling of the monument to the outstanding Ukrainian Teacher, the Kyiv community honors the ascetic work of Borys Grinchenko. Funds for the construction of the monument for two years were collected by teachers and students of the University and educators of the capital of Ukraine. The fund transferred over UAH 400,000.

The idea of ​​building a monument to Borys Grinchenko was realized with the personal support of the Head of the Kyiv City State Administration - Oleksandr Popov. On his behalf, the Shevchenkivska District State Administration (headed by Serhiy Zimin) and the city's municipal services performed a set of works to improve the park.
