The initiative to rename the 7 of Rostovsky Lane into the alley of the pilot Oleg Peshkov is supported by many famous Russians. In particular, the initiative is actively supported by actor Mikhail Porechenkov. Портал National service News reports that the initiative to rename the alley in which the Turkish diplomatic mission is located is also approved by other actors - in particular, Denis Nikiforov, known for the films Molodezhka, Yesenin, Shadow Boxing, and Alexey Ogurtsov, who starred in films “Day Watch”, “Paragraph 78”, etc.
The initiators of renaming the lane say that in this way official Ankara will forever remember the name of the pilot who died in Syria after being hit by Turkish airplanes. The name of the pilot is also the memory of the feat that the Russian Aerospace Forces perform in the Syrian sky, helping the Syrian people to get rid of the terrorist contagion.
The network discusses other ideas about renaming the lane in which the Turkish Embassy is located. One of the options is an alley in memory of the Armenian Genocide.
