Its members consider renaming Moskovky Prospekt (Moscow Avenue) and St.-Petersburg street into the Tskhinvalsky Prospekt (Tskhinvali Avenue) and Akhalogorskaya (or Akhalgor) street respectively, Interfax informs.

Nuzgar Tsikhlauri, one of the parliamentary majority leaders, intends to propose the Tbilissian Mayor's Office to rename Pushkin Square into Warsaw Square.

"In the past, Georgian streets and squares were named after Russian poets and writers not because they were literary symbols, but to let them be popular in the countries conquered by Russia ", - said Tsiklauri in the air of Rustavi 2, the TV channel.

It's important to mention that renaming of streets has started with the rule of the President Zviad Gamsakhurdia.
