I seek advice from the Discussion board letter by Ms Stella Kon on the lacking plaque (Disgrace that plaque, a logo of values, is defaced, Jan 26) commemorating the ground-breaking ceremony for a proposed Russian Cultural Centre (RCC), held in the course of the state go to of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Singapore on Nov 13, 2018.
Sadly, the plaque was stolen just a few months after the ceremony.
However because of the nice job executed by the Singapore police, it was discovered and returned to the Russian aspect.
The land plot the place the commemorative plaque and stone are positioned is leased by the Singapore Authorities to the Russian authorities primarily based on the bilateral settlement signed in 2015 on the development of the RCC with the Orthodox church in Singapore.
In the mean time, the design venture of the advanced is being labored out each by the Singapore and Russian architects.
Since we anticipate to start out the subsequent stage of the venture quickly, which would require clearing the bottom and eradicating the commemorative stone, it was determined to not return the plaque again to its place.
As a substitute, an alternate signal shall be positioned on the spot till the top of the development.
By then, the stone and unique plaque shall be returned to the place.
