This story (in Russian) is about a monument to Prince Svyatoslav recently erected in Belgorod, a town near the Russian-Ukrainian border.

A creation of sculptor Vyacheslav Klykov, once a member of the notorious Pamyat' Society, the monument commemorates Prince Svyatoslav's victory over the Khazars:

The guy on the horse is Svyatoslav; the defeated guy with the Magen Dovid on his shield is a collective representation of the Khazars...


Here's the symbol of the Pamyat' Society:

The head resting on a swastika is that of Jesus Christ, I assume.

***, the American Center of Khazar Studies, seems like a very good resource.

A Wikipedia page on the Khazars is here.
