MOSCOW, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Communist Party of Russia suggests renaming one of the streets or squares in the Russian capital to celebrate the reunification of Crimea with Russia.
Andrei Klychkov, the leader of the Communist Party faction in the Moscow State Duma, said on Wednesday that the party was going to submit its proposal to Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin soon. They believe that Europe Square in front of the Kievsky railway station could be a perfect place to perpetuate the historical event.
Klychkov said several new names for the square had been suggested.
“The list of names includes Square of Reunification of Crimea and Russia or Krymskaya (Crimean) Square, given that Moscow already has the Krymskaya embankment and the Krymsky Val street. The Square could also be renamed into Square of Friendship,” Klychkov went on to say, adding that the letter to Sobyanin had been signed by all faction members at the Moscow City Duma, except for the party leader Gennady Zyuganov who was going to put his signature on Wednesday.
“We are going to send this document to the mayor of Moscow today,” Deputy Klychkov said.
