Yerevan City Council party wants to rename Irina Rodnina Figure Skating School
YEREVAN, MARCH 22, ARMENPRESS. The Luys (Light) faction of the Yerevan City Council wants the Irina Rodnina Figure-Skating School to be renamed. The party has launched an initiative seeking to rename the school, which operates since 2015, to “Armenian-Russian Figure-Skating School”.
Irina Rodnina is a renowned retired Russian figure skater and politician.
The Luys faction said during today’s City Council meeting that they want the school to be renamed after Rodnina’s controversial statements made in Azerbaijan.
“The bill is ready, and we propose the other two factions to join it, which will enable brining the issue to the agenda,” councillor Ani Khachatryan from Luys said.
The two other factions agreed to include the issue in the agenda.
