Slovyansk mayor is asked to pay attention to English. At the Viche (rally of the citizens), activists asked the local administration to write name of streets in two languages – Ukrainian and English – while renaming them during the process of decommunization. “The situation is strange: the streets have been renamed, but there are no plates with the new street names.
