Medinsky has supported the idea to call the Russian airports by the names of outstanding Russians — Rambler News Service


The Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Vladimir Medinsky has approved a public initiative of assignment to the Russian airports of names of Russians, RIA Novosti reports. "It is sure that these names have to be known not only in our country, but also are recognizable for the international audience, especially when it is the international airport" — Medinsky on a round table in the Civic chamber of the Russian Federation has told. He at the same time has added that at assignment of a name the opinion of citizens will be considered first of all. Medinsky has also noted that, according to him, it is wrong to discuss names of political figures of the last hundred years and all 20th century as still there are "disputes on their role in the history of the country". The head of Ministry of Culture has told that scientists of Military and historical society have already offered a number of names: for the airport in Astrakhan Khlebnikov and Kustodiyev's names, in Voronezh — Bunina and Platonova, in Yekaterinburg or Perm — Tatishcheva, in Oryol — Turgeneva, in Penza or Pyatigorsk — Lermontova are offered. The Russian historical society, Society of the Russian literature, the Russian Geographical Society, the Russian military and historical society have acted as initiators of the Great Names of Russia project. It is emphasized that it is about addition of official names, but not about renaming. The secretary of the Civic chamber of the Russian Federation Valery Fadeyev, presenting this project, I have said that 45 Russian airports of the international and federal importance can be complemented with names of outstanding compatriots. According to him after names are chosen, in the long term thematic design registration of halls of these airports will also be discussed. "In November, we assume, there will take place this vote" — Fadeyev has told. The project will be realized in a format of a national competition.
