Nevertheless, he said that it was impossible to correct this mistake: “Because only Soviet Union used to gave “Heroic City” name. And it became impossible after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Now Russia gives name - “City of battle fame” to its cities. President Dmitry Medvedev gave this name to 5-6 cities on the occasion of 65th anniversary of the Victory. But Azerbaijan is a sovereign state and that is why we do not have right to give any name to any city”.
