Russia was offended by the Kiev Bandera Avenue, without noticing the streets Korczak

The Deputy of city Council of Kiev Yuri Sirotyuk said in his Facebook on the renaming of the Moscow Avenue of the capital of Ukraine in the prospect of Stepan Bandera. This immediately provoked a strong reaction of the Russian authorities.

According to Syrotyuk, the renaming was voted 87 of 97 deputies present, and none against none. The politician added that at the same time, decisions were made about the renaming of other streets, not directly connected with Russian realities.

So, Kutuzova street became the street of General Almazov (leader of the Ukrainian national Republic, the UNR, during the Civil war), and lane Kutuzov was named in honor of journalist Eugene Gutsalo.

Got rid of Kiev and Suvorov street: now she will wear the name of Michael Omelianovych-Pavlenko, another military leader of the UNR, during the Second world war who collaborated with Germany.

At the same time (this Sirotyuk not written) disappeared and Bauman street: it was named in honor of the deceased in a German concentration camp educator Janusz Korczak.

In Russia, however, has focused on the iconic rename Moscow Avenue. So, the first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Kazbek Taysaev felt that such a rename is “more politics than common sense,” and called the policy “fascist” in the same way describing the current Ukrainian authorities. He expressed confidence that with their change of names of streets back.

In the same spirit spoke and the Senator Franz Klintsevich, also declared “fascist Ukrainian society,” and reported that the city Council of Kiev “forever covered themselves with shame.”

The most moderate on this background was the position of the head of the HRC Mikhail Fedotov, urged not to do “stupid response” and not to rename, for example, the Kiev railway station in Moscow.

Let’s add that inhabitants of Kiev have noted that the prospect of Stepan Bandera still continues to stretch in the Moscow bridge
