In this connection, the country's authorities are going to get rid of the last mentioning of the Soviet period. For instance, they are going to rename the streets bearing the names of Stalin, Engels and some local revolutionists.


According to the TV company, there is Stalin Street, Engels Street and a street named after Georgian revolutionist Makharadze in the town of Kaspi in the central part of Georgia.

However, there are Stalin Streets in many small towns in Georgia. 

In Senaki, there is a street named after the local revolutionist Tskhakaya and the town had the same name in Soviet times.

There is also Stalin Street in the Abkhaz town of Gal.
