A mosaic of Hetman Ivan Mazepa commemorates Alexander Dordijk. 

Note: Ivan Stepanovych Mazepa (1639 – 1709) was the Hetman of the Zaporizhian Host in 1687–1708, and is claimed to be awarded a title of Prince of the Holy Roman Empire in 1707 for his efforts for the Holy League. He was famous as a patron of the arts, and also played an important role in the Battle of Poltava where after learning of Peter 1's intent to relieve him as acting Hetman of Ukraine and replace him with Alexander Menshikov he deserted his army and sided with Charles of Sweden. The politicization of this desertion has held a lasting legacy in both Russian and Ukrainian national history.
