Deputies Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky decided to return the city its historical name.
Session Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky city Council Thursday, October 26, voted to return the city’s historic name of Pereiaslav, according to the website of the city Council.
Deputies will appeal to the Kyiv regional Council to make a submission to the Verkhovna Rada for the renaming of the city.
“During the Second world war, renaming our town, the ideologues of Stalinism sought to uproot the tree, its thousand-year history and transplanted into an artificial pot of 1943. All the cunning of the colonial policy of “big brother” was the fact that adding to the name of our city glorious name of the leader of the national liberation revolution of the Ukrainian people of 1648-1657. Bohdan Khmelnytsky, they wanted to “cut off” from Pereyaslav national historical origins of Kievan Rus, having lost in the huge maze of the provincial cities mentioned except in connection with the anniversary of the falsified Treaty on “the reunification of Russian and Ukrainian peoples,” – said on the website of the city Council.
We will remind, earlier in Mukachevo was renamed the streets of Bandera and Shukhevych.
