A Himalayan peak has been named after Ukraine’s MP and pilot, Nadiya Savchenko, sports journalist Valentyn Shcherbachev said to ‘Hromadske Radio’.
‘I decided to call one of the mountains after Nadiya Savchenko, because this woman fought against the system of a bloody dictator for over two years. Last year, I named a mountain after heroes of Ukraine. This time, Nepali authorities issued an official certificate to name the other peak ‘Nadiya’, - the journalist said and noted, that ‘Himalayas is a very big and young mountain system. Many peaks are still unnamed’.
‘I’ve been trying to talk Nepali authorities into giving one of the peaks a Ukrainian name for over twenty years’, - Shcherbachev explained.
