Chironda proposes to name a street in Chisinau in memory of Navalny, who advocated for Transnistrian independence

The street named after Alexei Navalny in Chisinau is proposed to be named by municipal councilor Victor Chironda. The corresponding request was sent to the mayor, Ion Ceban.

“I waited for a week, hoping that the mayor himself would come up with such an initiative, since on February 16, he said that ‘Navalny’s courage is an example.’ But perhaps he is too busy. I asked the mayor, in his capacity as chairman of the Commission for the Regulation of City Names, to initiate and prepare a draft decision of the MSC to change the name of the street in Chisinau in memory of Alexei Navalny,” Victor Chironda wrote in his social network post.

And in Bucharest, the street on which the Russian Embassy is located may be renamed in honor of Alexei Navalny. The initiative is to be put to a vote in the General Council of the Romanian capital.

At the same time, a similar decision was voiced in Washington and the Parliament of Valletta in Malta.

Recall, however, that in 2017, Alexei Navalny stated the need for Russia to recognize “the independence of Transnistria, just as the independence of Abkhazia and Ossetia was recognized in 2008.”


“It is wrong to compare Crimea with Abkhazia. There was a military conflict in Abkhazia, and it has been an independent state for many years. In no way can this be compared to Transnistria, which has been an independent state from the Republic of Moldova for many years,” Navalny said in an interview with Ksenia Sobchak on the Dozhd TV channel.
