Renaming streets and other objects in Kyiv: details
Last year, several hundred objects were “derussified” in the Ukrainian capital , the names of which were associated with the aggressor country or the USSR. In total, 237 streets, avenues and boulevards were renamed, whose names were associated with the aggressor country or the Soviet past.
Residents of Kiev voted to rename the capital’s metro stations “Friendship of Peoples” to “Zverinetskaya”, and “Leo Tolstoy Square” to “Ukrainian Heroes Square”.
The denazification of Ukraine continues………
I was hoping they would rename a lot more after Bandera.
Just to piss off the moskali scum.
