May be someone can name the specimen. It called here as "Local banana", but odds are that its just introduced here long time ago (,39.8837478,13z). It never brings any fruit and is frozen down to the ground level every year. It resprouts next spring and can reach as high as 3, may be 4 meters high (if watered regularly).

Any ideas?
There is a very good chance it is a form of Musa basjoo which is cold hardy.
Do a Yandex search keyword Siberian banana that should get you a few more answers.
