May be someone can name the specimen. It called here as "Local banana", but odds are that its just introduced here long time ago (https://www.google.com/maps/@44.7529284,39.8837478,13z). 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.
