Kiev street renamed in honor of “Heavenly hundred”
Institutska Street, in the center of Kiev, where the violent clashes between opposition supporters and police officers happened, will be renamed in honor of the “heavenly hundred.” This was said in “Vesty.” According to TSN, the title “Heavenly Hundred” appeared after the killings of the activists during the confrontation, reports Christian Telegraph invictory.com in reference to “Lentu.ru.”
The proposal to give new name of the street was put forward at the “Popular Assembly” in Kiev. Some even proposed to rename all existing Lenin Streets in Ukraine in honor of the “heavenly hundred.”
MP Andrew Pishniy from the opposition of the “Batkivschina” has already registered in the Parliament the resolution on renaming Instytutska Street. The resolution states that it corresponds to the “sovereign will of the Ukrainian people.”
Activists have already glued street signs with sheets written “Heroes of heavenly hundred” without waiting for the official renaming.
It was also a proposal to set a monument of the “heavenly hundred” and “heroes of the Maidan.” This idea was supported by the head of the Kiev administration, Vladimir Makeenko, who in the midst of the mess happening in Kiev, left the ruling Party of Regions (supporters of Yanukovich). “We will announce a competition for the best architectural design, and any citizen of Ukraine can participate in that. Our children and grandchildren have to remember the heroes of the Maidan. Heroes never die,” he said.
Moreover, a decision was taken in Parliament to establish a “pantheon of national heroes” in Kiev. MPs from the opposition Nationalist Party “Freedom” made the proposal.
