The proposal to move the monument was made on may 6, the head Lozenech of Sofia district Konstantin Pavlov. He invited the mayor of Sofia Yordanka Fandakova to move it to the Museum of socialist art, which was created under the leadership of the then Minister of culture vezhdi Rashidov in 2011 and contains a number of works of monumental architecture of the Communist period. Among them the monuments to Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin and the Bulgarian revolutionary Georgi Dimitrov, the red star of the former House of the party, and others.
