The Kyiv City Council has decided to rename Povitroflotskyi Avenue. From now on, it will be named in honor of the Air Force of Ukraine.

This was announced by Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko on his Telegram channel. This name was previously supported by Kyiv residents and the Ukrainian military.

"From today, Kyiv has an avenue of the Air Force of Ukraine! Glory to our defenders! Glory to Ukraine!" Klitschko wrote.

It is worth adding that the commander of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk, reacted to the decision of the Kyiv City Council.

"Google maps say that you can enjoy a walk along Air Force Avenue for more than an hour. I am grateful to all Kyiv residents, the deputy corps, and personally to Vitali Klitschko for their trust and respect for our defenders of the sky!" Oleshchuk wrote.
