The Ministry of Culture has published the top 10 names of historical figures that are recommended to be removed from the names of the streets of Ukraine in order to overcome Russification and totalitarianism.
The list is headed by the first cosmonaut of the planet Yuri Gagarin.
The list of the most frequently used toponyms includes:
• Yuri Gagarin;
• Alexander Pushkin;
• Ivan Michurin;
• Valery Chkalov;
• Maksim Gorky;
• Mikhail Lermontov;
• Alexander Suvorov;
• Vladimir Mayakovsky;
• Alexander Matrosov;
• Vladimir Komarov.
At the same time, the current government likes to publish the top 10 main Ukrainian scientists on Science Day, the third place in which is Sergey Korolyov. If we delete Gagarin from our story, how can we explain to children how the great designer distinguished himself by launching Belka and Strelka into space?
