New Names For Squares And Metro Stations

The Moscow government has approved the names of two metro stations and two squares under construction.

      As Alexander Chistyakov, the capital's Public Relations Committee chairman reported at the Government meeting, the projected station of Kozhukhovskaya metro line will be called "Yugo-Vostochnaya". The station will receive such name by the example of existing "Yuzhnaya" and "Yugo-Zapadnaya" stations.

      In addition, the projected station of Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya metro line which bore the technical name "Konyushkovskaya" was renamed to "Dorogomilovskaya." Chistyakov also reported that the park, located in Yakimanka area at the intersection of Bolshoy Tolmachevskiy and Lavrushinsky lanes in the city center will be named "Shmelyov Park."

      Ivan Shmelyov was a Russian writer, publicist and Orthodox thinker. The park located on Tsuryupa Street in Cheryomushki district in the south-western Moscow will be named "The Guard Colonel F.G. Erastov Park." Mr. Chistyakov reminded that Fyodor Erastov was the veteran of Finnish and the Great Patriotic wars. He previously headed the Council of Great Patriotic War veterans of Cheryomushki district.
