As part of decolonization, the Committee of State Power, Local Self-Government, Redevelopment and Urban Planning supported the renaming of 109 settlements. Among them are 5 large cities: Chervonograd, Yuzhne, Pavlograd, Synelnikovo and Brovary.

People's deputy, first deputy chairman of the Committee of the Verkhovna Rada on the Organization of State Power, Local Self-Government, Regional Development and Urban Planning Roman Lozynskyi informed about this on Facebook.

Yes, Chervonograd should become the city of Sheptytskyi in the Lviv region. In Odesa, Yuzhne, according to the Committee's decision, will regain its historical name of Port Anental. And Brovary, in the Kyiv region, will return the historically correct spelling – Brovary.

This causes different positions, but this decision is also historical. And we will decommunize our country together, the deputy noted.

Two cities of the Dnipropetrovsk region will also receive new names: Pavlograd will become Matviyiv, and Synelnikovo will become Ridnopillyam. According to Lozinsky, such a vote is expected soon.

As a reminder, in 2023 the Law “On Condemnation and Prohibition of Propaganda of Russian Imperial Policy in Ukraine and Decolonization of Toponymy” was adopted. The Ukrainian Institute of National Memory (UINP) has prepared a list of 183 settlements that contain symbols of Russian imperial policy. They are proposed to be renamed.
