Cities, towns and villages across Ukraine get new names
About three hundred Ukrainian cities, towns and villages are officially renamed as part of the country’s de-communization drive. This comes after an overwhelming number of MP’s in Kyiv supported the initiative.
The main ones include Ukraine’s third largest city of Dnipropetrovsk, which is being renamed to Dnipro, Dniprodzerzhynsk which became Kamianske, Artemivsk which has already returned to to its historical name Bakhmut and Illichivsk – a key port in Odesa region now known as Chornomorsk.
