Over one of the main symbols of St. Petersburg the threat to be left without name of Pyotr hung


The Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg following the results of the national competition "Great Names of Russia" can be left without name of Peter the Great. It is reported in the press release which came to the editorial office of Lenta.ru on Thursday, November 22. As it is noted, because of low activity of Petersburgers only 17 thousand people voted for assignment to the local airport of a name of the first Russian emperor in 10 days. At the same time in Voronezh this option collected already more than 26 thousand votes. In total in St. Petersburg where more than five million people live, less than 40 thousand inhabitants took part in vote. The similar situation is observed also in Moscow: here only about 106 thousand votes are collected that approximately equals to the population of the Area of Vostochnoye Izmailovo, it is noted in the message. As a result the capital Sheremetyevo Airport risks to be left without name of Dmitry Mendeleyev: for this option the votes were given by only 5.5 thousand people while, for example, in Tyumen — already nearly 25 thousand people.
