Decommunization in Ukraine

After the full-scale war in Ukraine, renaming streets, parks, squares, etc., named after Russian state figures and artists became acute.

There are many outstanding people in Ukraine, so the state began to change the old names of objects.

For example, in Kyiv, Lva Tolstoho Square and Perova Boulevard were recently renamed.

Meanwhile, Gorkoho Park was renamed Central Park of Culture and Recreation in Kharkiv.
