NEW YORK CITY, June 28 – RIA News. The Coordination Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots of the United States (KSORS) drafted an online petition against plans to demolish the monument to the ruler of Russian settlements in North America in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Alexander Baranov.
As noted in the petition posted on the KSORS website, a group of residents of Sitka (Alaska) came up with a proposal to remove the statue of Alexander Baranov (1747-1819) from the city center.

“We believe that the demolition of the statue is the erasure of our Russian historical heritage,” the authors write.

The text recalls that Sitka was the capital of Russian America, and Alexander Baranov was the first Russian governor of Alaska. “The statue is an important reminder of the history of intercultural interaction and diplomacy,” the petition says.

Back and forth Alaska: how the Russian hinterland became an American stateEnglish schooners spun in coastal waters, hunted sea otters and whales, corsairs landed from them, made deals with the Indians. Emperor Alexander I was finally tired of all this, and on September 16, 1821, he issued a decree: Russia affirmed exclusive rights to Alaska and the Aleutian Islands.

The monument to Alexander Baranov is located in the center of Sitka. Until 1867, the city was called Novo-Arkhangelsk and was the capital of the territories of the Russian-American company. Baranov founded the city of Sitka, located on the island, which is now called Baranov Island, the authors indicate.

The statue of the sculptor Joan Bugby-Jackson was donated to the municipality in 1989 by one of the local American influential families – James – and was installed in the park opposite the city center, the text says.

“Under the leadership of Baranov, more than 200 settlements were built, some of which still exist. Novo-Arkhangelsk was founded as the capital of Russian America. With the assistance of Alexander Baranov, culture, religion, industrial and craft production developed in Alaska. Public libraries, schools were opened. and hospitals, as well as motels and nursing homes, “the authors write.

“During the reign of Baranov, more than 60 church buildings of the Russian Orthodox Church were built, including a seminary. Some of these churches have survived and continue to function. High-tech (for their time) shipyards and agricultural production, brick and iron foundries were opened. Modular wooden houses were made for transportation south to San Francisco, California, “the drafters said.

The petition has already been signed by 547 people.

Around the world in a thousand days: how the Russians redrawed the world mapFirst, the anchors of a combat sailboat rang — he embarked on a Kronstadt raid, then an artillery salute rumbled over Kronstadt. So on the August morning of 1806, the first Russian round-the-world expedition ended. As the newspapers reported, “to the indescribable joy and pleasure of compatriots.”
