This is a statue of Taras Shevchenko located in the park of the same name and along the boulevard of the same name. It's a nice enough statue and maybe worth a look if you're already in the vicinity.

Taras Shevchenko was an Ukrainian poet, writer but also a political figure who got into trouble for writing in Ukrainian. The monument looks nice at night when it's light up. You can find it in the small park in front of the University.

This statue is cool. But nothing really special. It is located in a nice park. So there is no need to make a special trip just to see it.
