The Belgrade City Assembly Commission for Monuments and Street Names adopted a proposal by Serbian President Aleksandar to name a street for a Soviet soldier killed during the liberation of Belgrade in World War 2.
Vucic made the proposal to name a city street after Red Army officer Nikolai Kravtsov as a private citizen. The president explained in the proposal that Kravtsvov was a lieutenant in the medical corps and was the only Red Army member awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union in the operation to liberate Belgrade. He was buried along with other Red Army troops two days after the then Yugoslav capital was liberated from Nazi forces.
A street in the area of central Belgrade where the Belgrade Waterfront project is located will be given Kravtsov‘s name, the Beoinfo portal reported.
