ROMANOV FAMILY: STREET WHERE THEY WERE MURDERED IN EKATERINBURG WILL BE RENAMED
Members of the committee of the Ekaterinburg street naming decided to rename the street to Tsarskaya. On this street once stood the house of engineer Ipatiev once stood – where the entire Russian imperial family and their servants had been murdered in 1918. On the same spot the Cathedral on the Spilled Blood had been erected at the turn of the 21st century. The new street name is a tribute to the murdered Romanov family, according to participants of the meeting. The decision to rename the entire street or only a segment of it will be based on a survey of local citizens.
