May 20 - Foundation Day Yekaterinoslav (Dnepropetrovsk)

Today Dnepropetrovsk celebrates the anniversary of its foundation on the Kilchen River. In 1776, by decree of Empress Catherine II, the center of the Azov province was founded, which received the name Ekaterinoslav. The initial position of Yekaterinoslav (on the Kilchen river) after some time was considered unsuccessful from the geographical and climatic points of view - frequent flooding, wetland. And in 1784, it was decided to transfer the provincial center to the Dnieper.

20 May 1787, Catherine the Great officially founds the new Yekaterinoslav. The foundation of the city is actually connected with the laying of the first stone in the foundation of the Transfiguration Cathedral. The date 20 of May 1787 was considered the official date of foundation of the city in the Russian Empire. In connection with the transfer of Yekaterinoslav from the Kilchen River to the place where the city is located to this day, Dnipropetrovsk actually has two official “years of birth” - 1776 and 1787. And both of these years are associated with the name of Empress Catherine the Great.

May 20 - Foundation Day Yekaterinoslav (Dnepropetrovsk)

As you know, in the heat of the struggle for "decommunization", the current Ukrainian authorities decided to rename Dnepropetrovsk. The initiative to rename was put forward by the Institute historical memory of Ukraine. However, the memory of this institute is clearly not all right, and therefore, instead of the historical name Yekaterinoslav, the city was given the name of the river on which it stands - the Dnieper. The decision was made by Ukrainian people's deputies, but not everyone supported such a renaming.

Within a few hours after the decision on Dnepropetrovsk-Dnepr was made, the deputies thought about the reverse renaming of Dnepr to Dnepropetrovsk. Until now, the Ukrainian media are thinking about how to cover news from the city: call it the Dnieper or is it Dnepropetrovsk? ..

At the same time, it was announced at the Ukrainian forums that celebrating the birthday of the city of 20 is not worth May, since the “ancient Ukrainian city” had been at this place before. This statement is from the same series as the statements about the "digging of the Black Sea by the ancient Ukrainians", as well as about the submarines "invented by the Cossacks".

Happy Birthday, Dnipropetrovsk (Yekaterinoslav)!

          Chersonesos is a Greek city. I have friends in Dnipro - they are happy to be renamed. Just why don't Ukrainians build a new city and call it whatever you want: either Verkhnekalomoisk or Nizhnebanderovsk. And Yekaterinoslav-be! "

        Some site visitors call these squalid "Samiznaetekto".
        I think it would be more correct to call them like this: "Those whose name is pronounced zapadlo" or in abbreviated form - IPZ.

    Happy birthday, Dnepropetrovsk / Ekaterinoslav! Renamed to the Dnieper? It will pass, this muddy foam will disappear. My native Gatchina was renamed both Trotsk and Krasnogvardeysk, and remained Gatchina. These dashing times will pass, they will surely pass.

    After the renaming of Dnepropetrovsk, the turn of the Ukrainian flag will come.
    The nonsense carried by the young deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in 2014 is being implemented slowly but surely - the flag will be turned over. Then other cities will be renamed. And the state itself will be renamed. To Tsentrina, I guess. Because for two years now this region has been in the center of attention of the world community. And when attention is not enough, you can observe hysteria and performances of various representatives of Ukraine as yet.
    What is the meaning of these actions? In the same, in what was the meaning of the wandering of the Jews, under the leadership of Moses, in the wilderness. Erasing the memory of the real past. And the education of new generations in the spirit of nationalism, probably. But nationalism is a dead end. The one that will be instilled in young Ukrainians is aggressive. There will be no love for the fatherland in him, but there will be hatred for the enemy fostered in the minds of people - Russia.
    The future of Ukraine is a black square.

    Dnepropetrovsk people betrayed the city and its glory. For a well-fed life only for themselves, they betrayed. The time for the harvest of what you have sown will come. You will fully sip from your children. Just as you betrayed your grandfathers and fathers, so your children will betray you.

    a person trying to change, the tsarist enters into a dispute with the providence of God and is very grieving from this. What Waltzman does by changing the cliché marked on the map of the Russian Empire by the Jewish Bolsheviks who gave Finland, the Baltic states, Poland, the Western gubernia (Belarus) Bessarabia, Podolia under the Brestlite concession to the Freemasons , Moldova and the Kars fortress And in order not to pay the debts of the empire to the Belgian and other creditors, they called the scanty remnant of the Russian Empire - the USSR is commendable if it were the old Russian name. BO, the graduates of the Tsar's manifesto of 1904 (on the removal of the settled status from the Gentiles (Jews- tolmudchikov), they do not need Russian, they need the status they received from the secret sale of the right bank of the Dnieper with the lands to the west of their ancestors from the Poles who ruled there in the Andrusovo peace from 1667. In other words, the Pandora's box was opened by Tsar Nicholas 2 at the warm request of the Rothschilds continues to give its poisonous shoots on the glorious Russian land in its southern limits

    The fight against monuments and "decommunization" are additional reasons to remember Ukraine's pro-Russian past and to understand the erroneousness of its historical choice. Without Russia, Ukraine has never been, never will be.
