The deputies of the largest city in the south of the Czech Republic, Český Budějovice, decided to deprive the first female cosmonaut, Valentina Tereshkova, of the status of an honorary citizen of the city. Budejcka Drbna reports this.
One member of the ruling party, as well as the entire composition of the opposition Communist Party, voted against this decision. So, the representative of the association “Citizens for Budejovice” Jan Kubesh recalled that Tereshkova received this status for her flight into space.
“I understand the position of some colleagues, because the situation in Ukraine is critical, and I do not approve of it, but, in my opinion, we have no right to take revenge in this way for what is happening in Ukraine. In my opinion, we do not have a mandate for this, & mdash; Kubesh said.
However, a member of the Christian Democratic Union— The Czechoslovak People's Party Szymon Heller did not agree with him, stressing that the deputies have a mandate for this. He pointed out that Tereshkova is close to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Valentina Tereshkova received the status of honorary citizen of Česká Budějovice in 1979.
Earlier, on May 9, deputies of the Prague City Council approved the deprivation of the title of honorary citizen of the Soviet commander and Marshal Ivan Konev, who received it in 1946.
