    It seems like all of the larger cities of Russia.

  • To the above-mentioned renamed cities:

    Kuibyshevka Vostochnaya - Belogorsk

    Hibinogorsk - Kirovsk

  • Alexandrovka then Krasnopartizansk Kuibyshevka-Eastern Belogorsk

    Antrea Kamennogorsk

    Vladikavkaz Ordzhonikidze Dzaudzhikau Ordzhonikidze Vladikavkaz

    Vyatka (Khlynov) in 1934 year-modern Kirov

    Izhevsk in 1985: Ustinov in 1987: now Izhevsk

    Kozlov in 1932, now Michurinsk

    Kuznetsk in 1931, Novokuznetsk in 1932, Stalinsk in 1961, Novokuznetsk

    Naberezhnye Chelny in 1982, Brezhnev in 1988, now Naberezhnye Chelny

    Petrozavodsk in 1941, Eenislinna in 1944, now Petrozavodsk

    Samara in 1935, Kuibyshev in 1990: now Samara

    The name of one and the same city changed many times from the beginning of the formation of this city. I think every city has several names in the past.

  • There are many such cities, I will give some examples:

    • St. Petersburg - Petrograd - Leningrad - St. Petersburg
    • Brezhnev-Naberezhnye Chelny,
    • Gorky-Nizhny Novgorod,
    • Zhdanov-Mariupol,
    • Kalinin-Tver,
    • The Oktemberyan-Armavir,
    • Ordzhonikidze - Vladikavkaz,
    • Tselinograd-Akmola-Astana,
    • Andropov-Rybinsk
    • Kuibyshev-Samara.
    • Ekaterinburg-Sverdlovsk-Ekaterinburg,
    • Ekaterinodar- Krasnodar,
    • Molotov-Perm,
    • Tsaritsyn-Stalingrad-Volgograd,
    • Novonikolaevsk-Novosibirsk,
    • Stavropol-Voroshilovsk-Stavropol.

    The first option is the old name, and the second is the new name.
