The Investigative Committee of Russia, by a special order, asked the leadership of the main investigation departments to find objects associated with the first investigators – in order to perpetuate their names. All this is timed to coincide with the 350th anniversary of the birth of Emperor Peter I.

Within the framework of this program, a corresponding letter was received at the Main Directorate of the Investigative Committee for St. Petersburg. Colleagues from the “Fontanka” publication tell about this. In the circular, the leaders are invited to “establish interaction with the heads of municipalities, toponymic commissions.”

Based on the results of such work, it will be necessary to send to the Investigative Committee “a list of objects bearing the names of investigators of the era of Peter the Great’s reign”, as well as substantiated proposals on the need to name or rename objects by the names of officers. This must be done no later than August 1, 2020.

For reference: the Russian Tsar Peter Alekseevich Romanov (the future Emperor Peter the Great) was born in 1672 on May 30 according to the old style, the official celebration of his 350th birthday is scheduled for June 9.

It is known that the “Plan of the main events for the preparation and holding of the celebration of the 350th anniversary of the birth of Peter I” for 2022 provides for about 115 events timed to this date, including “offsite” ones – for example, in Germany and France.
