Mass protests against renaming the city to Kropyvnytskyi take place in Kirovograd

61
After the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine announced the renaming of Kirovograd to Kropyvnytskyi (after the name of the comedian actor Mark Kropyvnytskyi), mass protests began in the city. Today, about 500 people came to the city center with calls to either refuse to rename the city or give the city a different name (not Kropyvnytsky). It is noteworthy that in the hands of those gathered it is possible to see tablets with calls to give it to the city historical the name is Elisavetgrad, which fully fits into the concept of the so-called "decommunization", because it is difficult for Empress Elizabeth to be convicted of communist views ...

Protesters against renaming the city demanded a meeting with local authorities, who did not take into account the opinions of citizens. To the protesters came the mayor Andrei Raikovich, who said that people should disperse and accept what happened.

Mass protests against renaming the city to Kropyvnytskyi take place in Kirovograd


Urban portal Kirovograd cites the words of the mayor:
Dear Kirovograd citizens. Today I urge the citizens who are gathered here for calm, prudence, wisdom. I am deeply convinced that we can legally solve all problems. We will do everything so that people live in peace and tranquility. I support all the people who live in our city and have the right to defend their point of view, but at the same time we need to maintain peace and tranquility. What happened happened!


The protesters said they would go to court.



Some time after the appearance of opponents of renaming to Kropyvnytskyi in the center of Kirovograd, supporters of the decision of the Verkhovna Rada began to converge. Supporters shouted threats to opponents of the renaming and said that the people's deputies made the right move, as the name of Mark Kropyvnytskyi tells Ukrainians about their origins. Between the two groups of people stood the local law enforcement officers. This is reported by the TV channel 112 Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian sociological monitoring services publish surveys of the population of Ukraine, in which they were asked to answer the question of who Mark Kropyvnytsky was, in whose honor the Rada renamed Kirovograd. The correct answer is given by no more than 8% of respondents. Over 40% believe that this is some kind of political figure since the UPR. Around 10% suggested that Kropyvnytskyi is one of the “heavenly hundreds”. More than a quarter simply found it difficult to answer.

          for...
          named after St. Elizabeth.
          Mother of John the Baptist.

          this is not the empress of romanov.

          Could at least a little ask

          And those who renamed the city with that name, those devils with a soldered head. That under the USSR, that under Bendera.

            Maybe not better, but more fun. Name streets after famous comedians, clowns, jesters and comedians. VRU follows the recommendations of British scientists "5 minutes of laughter will replace a glass of sour cream"
            Well, for those who do not appreciate the humor of the servants of the people, there is another principle "A blow to the kidneys will replace a mug of pyva"

        I have a counter question, in Russia a considerable number of cities have also been renamed, you say that you returned the historical names, but they were also named after Soviet leaders, Leningrad, Kuibyshev, Gorky and other cities, what difference does it make, I think over the years everything will be back again Kirov City now Vyatka seems

      And they sho not? Huy are glad that they are not Banderstadt-on-Ingul.
      Although, Europe, Magdeburg Law, and so on ...

      The very fact of renaming foreign cities (I mean not by the residents themselves, but by someone from outside) looks like some kind of mockery. It's like forcibly changing a person's surname. Not because the person got married (got married) and decided to take the spouse's surname, not because he himself did not like the surname, but simply because the other did not like his surname. "Hey, Ivanov, now you will be Epanko. Bo I want it that way."

      And it reminds a joke about an Indian named Bull X ...

        Yes, the meaning of all the renaming is not to assign some Ukrainian name, but to erase the memory of Russians and Russia. Decommunization has nothing to do with it: the junta's main thing is to burn out from the people's memory that the Ukrainians are southern Russians, and not descendants of some mythical ancient ukrains.
        Well, the opinion of the townspeople does not play a role here - Ingulsk did not want to, they got Kropyvnytsky by will.
        Is it really Elisavetgrad to be called in order to glorify the Russian Empress?

    "What they don't do, things don't go. It can be seen that their mother gave birth on the Maidan." They are great at decommunizing everything, especially with the names of streets and cities. among Ivanov, the kinship of those who do not remember, by definition, there can be neither present nor future.

    Well, let's see how the Ukrainian will is there, i.e. Vilya, it works. For what jumped, what ran into.
    How many Ukrainians built cities? No one! And how many were renamed? ..)))

    Dill crop. And what? Symbolically! )))

    The city is southern. In the summer there are many flies.
    Why not immediately name - Mukhoshor .... to.
    The mayor doesn’t care, people will get used to it.
    But what fame! "Have you been to Mukhosr ..... ke? No? Be sure to visit!"
    So the Guinness Book of Records is not far ....

    Straight from the classics: "we painted ourselves in the colors that we painted ourselves" - "what happened happened"
    I think bargaining is not appropriate here :-) :-) :-)

    The head of the mist is well done. Noticed, calls for wisdom. Not the age of the juntians rule.

    Guys, to hell with them, even if they call the city "Chaplin" anyway, they won't get any funnier - nowhere is funnier, the whole region, they jumped.

      But with Chaplin a puncture! The word (surname) Chaplin comes from the Russian word CHAPLYA - heron. So they say in some places in central Russia.

    Yes! History is completely forgotten! Initially, the city was named Elisavetgrad after the fortress, which was founded in 1754. The fortress was named in honor of the built in the Church of St. Elizabeth, was one of the mainstays of the Russian defense in the region from the attacks of neighboring Poland during the years 1754 - 1764!

    "... since the name of Mark Kropyvnytskyi tells Ukrainians about their origins" (nettle seed!)
    A resident of the village of Shelmovatki appealed to the Verkhovna Rada to rename the planet Earth to Ukraine, and the World Bank - to the National Bank of Ukraine.

    It would be more correct to name it "Krovopivnitsky" in honor of the current junta
