On November 15, 2013, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the Zaporizhstal enterprise, a monument to Mykolai Rybnikov, an actor who played the role of steelmaker Sasha Savchenko in the film Spring on Zarechnaya Street, was unveiled on Metalurhiv Avenue.
At the opening of this monument was attended by Grygoriy Pometun, a Zaporizhzhia steelmaker who taught the actor the features of a difficult metallurgical profession, not everyone knows, but it was this then young steelmaker who became the prototype of the hero played by Mykolai Rybnikov.
And now in the middle of the city, on one of the avenues on a bench, there is a man in a cap on his side, with a jacket over one shoulder and looking somewhere in the distance. The hero of one of the famous films made in the industrial Zaporizhzhia in the Soviet era.
The monument to actor Mykolai Rybnikov has become a well-known place for photographs of citizens, the highlight is that when a passerby sits down nearby, a melody of the song “When spring comes I don't know” sits from a loudspeaker styled in the 1950s.
