Kyiv residents have noticed that the city still does not have a street named after the main city of 3 world religions and the capital of Israel-Jerusalem, and offer to rename Moskovska street into Jerusalem street.

The corresponding petition No. 9452 is registered on the website of the city hall, reports "Velykiy Kyiv".

Its author Serhiy Bandursky notes that after the Baptism of Russia by Volodymyr the Great, Kyiv was known as North Jerusalem for many centuries in the Christian world.

In his opinion, only one of the central historical streets of Kyiv, where important spiritual and religious buildings are located, can be called Jerusalem street, and Moskovska street is ideally suited to these criteria and should be renamed Jerusalem street.

Note that for consideration by the deputies of the Kyiv City Council, the petition must gain 10 thousand votes in the remaining 89 days.

As you know, in Jerusalem there are shrines of all three world religions: the wailing Wall at the Temple Mount (the center of Judaism), the Al-Aqsa Mosque-the Shrine of Islam and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre - the center of Christianity.
