MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Moscow City will never remove the names of streets and facilities referring to Kiev and Ukraine from its map, Deputy Mayor Leonid Pechatnikov told TASS on Friday.
"This will never happen," he said. "I’m a certified physician and I know many infectious diseases but, luckily enough, imbecility isn’t one of them and that’s why we won’t change any place-names related to Kiev or Ukraine."
Somewhat earlier, the Kiev authorities endorsed several projects for renaming the places located in Kiev. For instance, Moskovskaya Street will get the name Staropecherska, Moskovsky Bridge get the name of architect Georgy Fuks. Moskovkaya Square is to be called Demeyevskaya, while Moskovsky Prospect will be renamed into Kurenevsky Prospect.
Moscow City has the metro station Kiyevskaya, the Kiyevsky railway terminal, Kiyevskaya Street, Ukrainsky Boulevard, and hotel Ukraine.
