Instead of Bulgakov – Kikabidze: in Kyiv the names of 10 objects were changed

In total, the names of objects in seven districts of the capital were changed.

In Kiev, as part of de-Russification and decommunization, 10 more city objects were renamed.

As stated on the Official Portal of Kyiv, such decisions were made today, February 8, at a plenary meeting of the Kyiv City Council by a majority of deputies.

“The capital of Ukraine continues to get rid of names that influenced the distortion of our national consciousness. The process of decommunization and de-Russification is quite lengthy, since it includes several stages, but through joint efforts, together with the residents of the capital, the city is actively moving in this direction. In centuries-old Kiev, there should be no names left, which are associated with the aggressor country, its Soviet and imperial past,” said Vladimir Bondarenko, deputy city chairman-secretary of the Kiev City Council.

In particular, objects in seven districts of the capital were renamed.
