A monument in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Military Academy of the Special Purpose Rocket Forces named after Peter the Great was opened in Balashikha.

The sculptural composition is a gift to the military academy for the anniversary date. The monument reflects three historical epochs of the institution’s development – imperial, Soviet and Russian, personifying the officers’ selfless service to the fatherland. The monument was created by the sculptor of the Studio named after M.B. Grekova Lyudmila Semikopenko.

The Peter the Great Military Academy of the Strategic Missile Forces originates from the officers’ department of the Artillery School, opened in 1820 in St. Petersburg. Over the 200 years of its existence, the Academy has trained more than 60 thousand officers with the highest military-special and operational-tactical training. In 2015, the academy was relocated to the city of Balashikha.
