Aggravation of social conflicts through introduction of controversial history figures into Ukraine's toponymy does not help to consolidate the society, Education Minister Dmytro Tabachnyk told ForUm commenting on the information on renaming one of Ukraine's streets after Nazi battalion of WWII times.

"I don't want to live or be buried on the street named after Nazi battalion Nachtigall. Even Baltic countries don't dare," he said in particular.

"Sometimes I feel temptation to name one of the streets after USSR marshal Lavrenti Beria just to balance the impulse of nationalists. But of course I restrain such temptations," the Minister added.

Commenting on today's rally of nationalists on the occasion of anniversary of OUN UPA founding, Tabachnyk said such actions 'do not assist in consolidating the society.'
