Lenin Park in Helsinki to be renamed

Jun 22, 2023

The Helsinki City Council has decided to rename Lenin Park.

This is reported by Yle.

The decision states that Lenin Park should be renamed because of Lenin's atrocities and Russia's aggressive war, which violates international law.


The park has not yet been given a new name.

Citizens suggested naming the park in honor of President Sauli Niinistö or former Prime Minister Sanna Marin.
