Vakulenchuk Monument

Just right (east) of the industrial port entrance, shaded by trees, is a monument to Grigory Mikitovich Vakulenchuk.

The plaque states:

Grigory Mikitovich Vakulenchuk

Vakulenchuk was one of the slain mutineer leaders on the battleship Potemkin. In 1905 striking workers gathered at the port to witness the sailors bring ashore the body of Grigory Vakulenchuk. A fire started at the port and over 1,000 people died in the resulting chaos.
