The monument was set up in 1970. Its authors were sculptors Dmytro Krvavych, Emanuil Mysko, Yaroslav Motyka, monumental artist Oleksandr Pyrozhkov, and architects Myron Vendzylovych and Apolon Ohranovych. Today the presence of the monument is the subject of heated debate. In 2007 the inscription "Glory to the Soviet Army" was replaced by "To the winners over Nazism".
