In the village of mynai on the outskirts of Uzhgorod 5 Aug opened the square named after American artist of Ukrainian origin, Andy Warhol. This was reported by press service of the head of the Transcarpathian regional state administration Gennady Moskal.

It is noted that the area was previously called October and a decree on renaming the Russian signed in April 2016 in the framework of the law on de-communization.

“We could open this area a few months ago or even last year, but chose the beginning of August, because August 6 Andy Warhol would have turned 89 years, Warhol’s Ukrainian roots, his parents lived 100 kilometers from Uzhgorod, so the artist deserves, in whose honor was named the area in Transcarpathia”, – said Moskal.

We will remind, in July in Mukachevo was renamed the streets of Bandera and Shukhevych, although they received the title in the context of decommunization just three months ago.
