Street in Kyiv renamed after Roman Ratushny
The Kyiv City Council renamed Volhohradska Street in the capital's Solomyansky District to Roman Ratushny Street. This decision was supported by 68 deputies on September 8, KCSC announces.
"Roman went to protect Ukraine at the very beginning of the large-scale invasion of russian barbarians. And the fact that this talented, principled, and brave soldier is no longer with us is a great loss for Kyiv and the entire country. Because people like Roman Ratushny are the future of a strong and democratic Ukraine. Therefore, with today's decision, we have immortalized Roman's name and his cause – protecting Kyiv's green areas," Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klychko wrote.
In addition to Volhohradska, about 40 more of the capital's streets, alleys, and squares whose names were related to russia and the Soviet past were renamed today. In particular, Moskovska Street in the city center was renamed to Knyaziv Ostrozkykh Street.
We remind you that the de-russification process is underway in Kyiv. At the last meeting in late August, the Kyiv City Council renamed 95 Kyiv streets, squares, and alleys.
As IMI reported, on June 9, head of NGO Let's Save Protasiv Yar and a scout of the 93rd Separate Mechanized Brigade "Kholodnyy Yar" Roman Ratushnyy was killed in a battle near Izyum (Kharkiv reion).
Roman Ratushny bequeathed money for the development of Historical Pravda and Novynarnia websites.
Roman would have turned 25 years old on July 5. He took part in the Revolution of Dignity at the age of 16, was a public activist and head of NGO Let's Save Protasiv Yar.
Help us be even more cool!
