File photoMOSCOW, Apr 29The idea of ​​the Israeli ambassador in Kyiv to rename some streets of the Ukrainian capital is bewildering, said the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova. Recently, Ambassador Michael Brodsky turned to the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, with a proposal to rename the streets and public places of the city in honor of the Ukrainian righteous people who saved Jews in years of the Great Patriotic War.

Zakharova noted that Russophobic hysteria has become a familiar sign of the times. The administration of Kyiv, according to her, seeks to destroy the friendship between the Russian and Ukrainian peoples and deprive Ukrainians of the memory of Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Alexander Pushkin, the exploits of the commanders and fighters of the Red Army. “At the same time, the position of the official representative of the State of Israel, who in In her statement, she pretends that she only means to perpetuate the memory of “the people who saved the Jews during the Holocaust, the real heroes of the Ukrainian people.” And not a word about how this is supposed to be done,” the diplomat said.In Kyiv, they proposed to rename Leo Tolstoy Street into the street of the Azov regiment. She drew attention to the fact that the Israeli ambassador forgets that during the Great Patriotic War, mass Jewish pogroms and executions in Ukraine were carried out with the active participation of local nationalists and collaborators, who today Kyiv pays homage.” As a result of the Israeli diplomat's flirting with the current Kyiv regime, the proposed new names of city objects dedicated to people who actually selflessly saved Jews may appear next to the names of those pseudo-heroes who are directly responsible for the death of civilians during World War II of the war, including thousands of Jews. It is impossible to allow the perpetrators of the Holocaust to be praised in any way,” the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasized. renaming the streets memorials in honor of the soldiers of the Red Army, sung with figures of Russian culture and science. According to Klitschko, it is planned to rename almost half a thousand streets and objects in Kyiv. Klitschko proposed to rename the Arch of Friendship of Peoples in Kyiv
