On the foundational hill of Khabarovsk (Russia) a statue of the Nikolay Muravyov was erected in 1891, replaced by an statue of Lenin and then restored in 1993. The Governor General Muravyov was the responsible of the treaty signed between the Russians and the Chinese that established the modern borders of Russia and China in the Far East, recovering the Amur river region for Russia. It is thus known as Nikolay Muravyov-Amursky. Khabarovsk's main street is named after him.

The picture was taken from the river down the hill, with the sun setting behind.
