  • The mayor of Kharkov, Igor Terekhov, proposed renaming Pushkin Street in honor of Grigory Skovoroda.
  • In the summer of 2022, Terekhov announced that in Kharkov they plan to change about 400 names associated with Russia. But this did not apply to Pushkin streets and the Pushkin metro station.

  • “What is Pushkin, born Putin, to blame for? Moreover, Pushkin is a world-famous poet, as is Lermontov. There are other outstanding poets, writers, and artists. There is no need for everyone to fit the same brush… We learned from the wonderful poems of Pushkin and Lermontov. And Pushkinskaya will remain Pushkinskaya. We have Pushkinskaya street, we have a metro station named after Pushkin. Let this remain,” Igor Terekhov said then.

  • Kharkov suffered Russian attacks from the first day of the large-scale invasion. The Russians hit civilians in Kharkov and their homes. Only after three attacks on January 23, one of which killed 10 townspeople, Terekhov decided to abandon the street of the “world famous poet” Pushkin.
