As an example, he cited the arc de Triomphe Grozny the capital of Chechnya. Which, in his opinion, it would be appropriate to name in honor of General Yermolov, so as “to perpetuate the memory of the hero of the Caucasian war”.
Read how Peter made the decision about the bridge.
Recall that, according to the Yermolov, the Chechens were “the most evil of the robbers, known for his phrase “I Want to name my fear guarding our borders stronger chains and fortifications that my word was law for Asians, or rather, inevitable death.“
In the comments Rashkin has proposed to call the arch in Grozny in honor of Stalin.
Currently the residents of St. Petersburg are preparing a rally against “Kadyrov bridge”, which will take place on 6 June at 19:00 on the Champ de Mars, and and are already approved by the city administration. The final decision on the name of the bridge must be signed by the Governor Georgy Poltavchenko.
