Completely disassemble the monument; 4. Postpone the decision on the fate of the monument until the end of martial law; 5. Hold the monument in place without changes; 6. Keep the monument in place and add historical information about Catherine II’s activities; 7. Save the monument and move it to a special memorial park or museum.
