It is worth mentioning that it is not the first of the Moscow Government with a political symbolic name, not the Moscow government.

In February 2018, the Washington government of the United States changed the name of a square next to the Russian Embassy in Washington to "Nimzov Square". Several US members of the United States, staff members of the State Council, and government officials attended the renames.

Boris Nemtsov is one of the founders of Russian opposition politicians and the Russian right -wing force alliance. On February 27, 2015, Neumzov was shot shot on the street near the Kremlin of Moscow.

The Washington government claimed at the time that it was "to commemorate the killing of democratic movements", but Russia condemned this as "Dirty Trick". Another Russian official has accused this behavior that "interfered with Russia's internal affairs."

The Moscow Municipal Government said that after the name "Donetsk People's Republic Square", another street or square will be selected to rename in the future to commemorate the "Lugusk People's Republic" struggle.
