Pushkin, Lomonosov, Tupolev: Russian Airports Get a Name Change

Kirill Zykov / Moskva News Agency

Out with the old, in with the new.

Airports in dozens of Russian cities will now bear the names of their famous residents after President Vladimir Putin issued a decree on the name change Friday.

Here’s a look at some of the newly minted names of some of Russia's most popular airports. Hopefully, this will help you avoid confusion if you see “Pushkin Airport” instead of Sheremetyevo when you book your next ticket to Moscow.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
