This small Memorial is situated along the walls of the New Venetian Fortress on Str. Xenofontos in Corfu Town.

It commemorates Admiral Fyodor (Theodore) Ushakov. He was born on 24th February 1745 and died 14th October 1817, aged 72.

He was a military leader during the Siege of Corfu, which took place from October 1798 till March 1799. This was a joint Russian and Turkish fleet operation against the French troops that occupied the Island of Corfu

In 2001 the Russian Orthodox Church made  Ushakov  a Saint and was declared as the patron of Russian Navy. In 2005 Saint Feodor (Theodore) Ushakov becam the patron saint of Russian nuclear-armed strategic bombers. With feast days on 2nd October and 23rd May

The small park and path area, where the Memorial is located, needs some attention it is becoming overgrown with weeds.

A bit shabby and without reading around it no other information to explain? Could do with a tidy up and (as with many statues in Corfu) a multilingual info plaque nearby?

This Russian War Memorial marks the liberation of Corfu in 1799 by Russian naval commander and admiral of the 18th century - Fyodor Ushakov. In the course of 43 naval battles under his command he did not lose a single ship and never lost a battle.
It is really worth to visit.

This Russian War Memorial marks the liberation of Corfu in 1799 by Fyodor Fyodorovich Ushakov who was the most illustrious Russian naval commander and admiral of the 18th century. The memorial is tidy and almost always have flower. Its really worth the visit since its in down-town just 5 minutes walk from the Liston Square. While you stand and watch this memorial you should meditate on the fact that you are looking in one of the most successful military commanders of all times. In the course of 43 naval battles under his command he did not lose a single ship and never lost a battle. From his initiation on navy 1766 till his retirement in 1812

We walked passed this monument and wondered why a Russian flag was there. Although we couldn’t work out why from the monument a quick google search revealed the answer. It commemorates the Russian liberation of Corfu in 1799 from the French.

I saw this monument in front of the fortress of Corfu, when walking from my hotel (port) to the Old Town. There is however not much information there and you leave wondering why the Russian flag is in Corfu. I think on this tripadvisor page I was provided with more information.

Very well looked after with fresh flowers and flags could not really understand what it was for as was in Russian, it could do with some translations, at first thought it was a Serbian memorial dedicated to the soldiers who died on the island in WW1 ( the blue graveyard) as there was a Serbian flag present but after some internet research realised it was for the Russian admiral who liberated the island in the 1700's
