71 members of council voted for the adoption of the relevant draft decision with the minimum required 61, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The secretary of the city council, Volodymyr Prokopiv, noted that the family of the American politician supported the renaming initiative, and the city council received an official letter from the widow of Senator Cindy McCain.
