The subway station “Petrivka” in Kiev was opened in 1980. It was named in honor of revolutionary Grigory Petrovsky. The Kiev government in 2015, passed a law banning symbols of the era of socialism, as they supposedly have a negative impact on the minds of the inhabitants of the Ukraine, prevented the citizens to show patriotism. The country has renamed streets, the museums, the names of various organizations, eating places and other facilities. Metro station “pochayna” appeared in the eponymous river flowing in Kiev.

Previously, Ukraine got the other names of the different streets of the towns. In Kiev, instead of Marinesco-Chervonoarmiiska metro line appeared Obolon-Teremkovskaya. The MPs are the initiators of changes in the names of different objects in the state.
