Deputies of Krasnoarmeysk City Council voted to rename the city in Pokrovsk, – reported DDK.dn.ua.
"They will apply to the Verkhovna Rada for deputies to rename Krasnoarmeysk in Pokrovsk, not Grishino," - said the statement.
Chairman of Donetsk Regional State Administration Pavel Zhebrivskyi, despite the fact that the Verkhovna Rada is to make the final decision on the issue of renaming, wrote on his Facebook page: "There is no krasnoarmiysk in Donetsk region. There Pokrovsk. There is still Dimitrov. But I guess not for long."
As for Dimitrov, the working group proposed to rename the city as Mirnograd. The new name for the city will be discussed at a meeting of the Public Council and submitted for approval at the session.
Last time the community chose Dmitrov. But the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine issued a draft decree "On renaming individual towns and districts" on February 17th. According to this document, deputies can rename Dimitrov in Grodovsk.
