“The cross fell, he held the sword”: a monument to the Archangel Michael miraculously survived on the square in Borodyanka. It was here that Russian orcs shot the head of the monument. A cross fell in the form of Archangel Michael. However, he held a sword in his hand.

The sculpture was unveiled in honor of the 825th anniversary of the settlement in 2015. The money was collected by the residents themselves. The figure is similar to the one depicted on the coat of arms of Borodyanka, but on the coat of arms of the archangel in the right hand – a fiery sword, and in the left – a shield. In the Christian tradition, the Archangel Michael is an angel-healer, protector, patron of soldiers and knights.
