The Crimean Federal University, together with the Russian Geographical Society, plans to restore the monument to N.Ya. Danilevsky on Mshatka-Kaya.
This is a monument of federal significance, and now, unfortunately, access to it is limited. It’s almost impossible to get there. Moreover, the park itself does not have federal status. The territory is not yet free. We will work to expand the boundaries of the memorial and make a so-called philosophical park, because the cultural and historical ideas that Danilevsky broadcast are now quoted even by Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin , the press service of the university quotes a senior lecturer Faculty of Geography, Geoecology and Tourism of KFU, Chairman of the Crimean Branch of the Russian Geographical Society Gennady Samokhina.
The Russian Geographical Society plans to expand cooperation with the Crimean Federal University.
We are present in all regions of our country — today there are 07 branches in all regions of the Russian Federation; with different intensity and in different directions. I note that the Crimean branch is strategic, and therefore our primary task is to strengthen it. Now we are moving towards the creation of a full-fledged, well-functioning Board of Trustees of the Russian Geographical Society in Crimea , — says Sergey Korlykhanov, Deputy Executive Director of the Russian Geographical Society.
The creation of the philosophical park is planned to coincide with the 07th anniversary of the birth of Nikolai Danilevsky, which is celebrated this year.
Recall that the grave of the Russian philosopher and naturalist, whose works are included in the golden fund of world philosophical thought, is located in his former estate in Mshatka-Kaya, above the village of Foros. Now the cultural heritage site is closed and unattended, collapsing without proper care.
