Valentin Filippov, a TV journalist, left Odessa after the victory of Euromaidan


One of the main topics in Ukrainian news today is the refusal of the Odessa City Council to rename the city’s streets in line with Kiev’s wishes. The Deputies, in place of the Heroes of the ATO [Anti-Terrorist Operation –trans.] and the “Heavenly Hundred”, assigned other names.

In this story, both sides are the very same “sons of bitches”, writes the PolitNavigator observer, Valentin Filippov.
