Deputies of the Kharkiv City Council supported the decision to return the name of the Soviet Marshal Georgy Zhukov to the avenue named after Petro Hryhorenko.
It is noted that the decision also provides that the name of Petro Hryhorenko will be assigned to a lane.
Recall, the Marshal Zhukov Avenue in Kharkiv was renamed to Petro Hryhorenko Avenue in 2016 as part of the implementation of the law on decommunization. On May 8, 2019, electronic petitions were registered on the site of the Kharkiv City Council demanding the return of the name of Marshal Zhukov to the avenue and the metro station. Kharkiv Mayor Hennadiy Kernes expressed his support for the petitions and urged to return the name of Soviet Marshal to the city avenue.
