Moscow – Kirov Street (1983)

Myasnitskaya Street (in the 16th-17th centuries – Frolovskaya Street and Evplovskaya Street, in 1918-1935 – Pervomaiskaya Street, in 1935-1990 – Kirov Street) – a street in the Central Administrative District of Moscow (Basmanny and Krasnoselsky districts). It runs from Lubyanskaya Square to Sadovaya-Spasskaya Street. The numbering of houses is carried out from Lubyanka Square. On December 14, 1935, by a resolution of the Moscow City Council, the street was renamed Kirov Street in memory of a prominent figure in the Communist Party, Sergei Mironovich Kirov, on the basis that the body of the murdered Kirov was transported along Myasnitskaya Street for burial on Red Square.
