VIENNA, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Vladimir Yakunin, the head of the Russian Railways Company, told journalists on January 23 that politicians should not rush to rename railways without a public discussion. Some time earlier, LDPR (Liberal Democratic Party of Russia) leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky suggested returning the old pre-revolutionary name - Nikolayevsky - to Moscow’s Leningrad railway station.
“It seems to me that a political public debate should be held to decide whether the moment is right to bring modern names in line with historical roots. There are contradictory assessments of Russian history in our society,” Yakunin went on to say.
“I believe that this initiative is based on historical tradition. There is a Leningrad region near St. Petersburg, and we have the city of Yekaterinburg and the Sverdlovsk railway,” Yakunin explained.
“We have many things that require change. But since the proposal has come from the mouth of a politician, perhaps, he will help us to make the right decision,” the Russian Railways head said.
