KIEV, July 31. /TASS/. Deputies of the West-Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankovsk, one of the mainstays of militant nationalism on Friday issued a resolution remove the name of the landmark classic of Russian literature, Alexander Pushkin, from the name of a city street since Pushkin (b. 1799, d. 1837) allegedly occupied "an anti-Ukrainian position", a local news portal said.
"The city deputies decided to rename the Northern Alexander Pushkin Boulevard into simply Northern Boulevard," said the Ostrov Galitsiya portal.
The deputies clearly ignored the words of city mayor Viktor Anushkevichus, who said that "[...] Pushkin's personality should be viewed on a global plane, although he might have made some separate errors." The final resolution claimed that "Pushkin's personality does not have an unambiguous place in Ukrainian history.".
