The new Rostov airport (was known as “Yuzhny”) officially named “Platov”. The corresponding decree had been signed by Prime minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
The name “Platov” (given after the famous Cossack general Matvey Platov, 1753 – 1818) was chosen by majority of people during the electronic election organized by Rostov region government.
