"Moscow" names you want to remove from the map of Kiev - this project will look at the city Council Committee on culture, informs on Wednesday, the Ukrainian newspaper " Vesti ".
This will affect Moskovsky Avenue, squares, streets and bridge, says the magazine.
The authors of the project have prepared him after the Verkhovna Rada has recognized the Russian Federation as an aggressor.
As explained to the newspaper the people's Deputy of the Kyiv city Council from the UDAR faction Victoria Mucha, one of the authors of the project, the majority of the people of Kiev do not want to live on the streets, named after the capital of Russia." We are not against the entire Russian, not against Russia and its cultural values, but against aggression with which is associated the word " Moscow ", - said the Fly.
for example, Moscow area elected officials want to call Demeevskaya (from the name of the area - Demeevka). Capital bridge may be North." It was opened in 1976 and in the project documentation was called North, " says the Fly.
Metropolitan Avenue propose to rename in Moscow by the name of the neighborhood where the street begins. A Moscow street on Pechersk want to do Starobesheskoj, As the street was formed after the construction of the Old Pechersk fortress in 1708.

at the end of January, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the message that Russia is called an aggressor because Kiev believes that Russia interfering in Ukraine is a party to the conflict in the Donbas. Russia denies It and calls such accusations are unacceptable. Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to domestic conflict and not privy to the events in the Southeast, and on the contrary, is interested in Ukraine to overcome the political and economic crisis.
