Monuments in Kaliningrad / February 2010, February 2011, June 2012
In Kaliningrad, the debates on whether to rename the city are constantly emerging. There are supporters of a "return" to the historical name of Koenigsberg, there are enthusiasts of the name Krulevets, and some offer Baltograd. But, thank God, the common sense prevails so far, and Kaliningrad retains its name that was won in the toughest battles of March-April 1945. Mikhail Kalinin could be at peace about the strength of his pedestal.
