As an update to this post:
Local residents and authorities recently refused to rename the Ukrainian street in Kalyny after the Beetles co-founder, as a nationwide trend to desovietize the nation. Formerly, the street was named after Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin. As this obviously would not hold ground for a post-USSR world, the administrative leader of the district, Hennadiy Moskal, wanted to name it after John Lennon.
The people said no, and instead it will be renamed Slovyans’ka, named after a city in the Donetsk Oblast in eastern Ukraine, which is most controversially in the news for being the front lines in the Ukrainian crisis.
