In the Zaporozhye area disputes round renaming of the village October (the Tokmaksky area) in Jackson or Dzheksonovka, in honor of the dead of bottoms - Michael Jackson's idol don't cease.
The deputy of a regional council Oleg Kislitsin wrote the letter to the U.S. President Barack Obama in whom asks it to give help in renaming. He also assures that this initiative will be included in the agenda of the next meeting of a regional council. However, in a regional council Kislitsin's idea perceive skeptically, and some colleagues frankly call "madwoman". But it doesn't discourage the deputy. He claims that all the matter is that in a regional council are afraid of world publicity of a distress of the village October which after renaming can get chance to survive on tourists.
"We with neigbours still shocked, we very much don't like idea, - the local resident, the pensioner Lyubov Petrakova told. - We discuss it while we graze cows every day, and, in our opinion, it is better to leave everything as is. We don't know Jackson's songs and it we know about the deputy only from newspapers". "I even had to drink warm when I about it heard. This my native village, and suddenly... such", - one more local resident, the pensioner Olga Korolenko speaks. "About 80% of our inhabitants are pensioners to whom and such idea couldn't come to mind, - the head of the Village Council October Nina Antipenko told us. - If the speech about renaming came, at sat down to eat the historical name - Kurkulak". But Kislitsin insists that with the offer on renaming local fans of the singer addressed to it.
