Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko wants to name a street in Kiev after the late Sen. John McCain.

"The Ukrainian president is asking the parliament's factions to support his initiative to rename the Ivan Kudrya street . . . after Senator John McCain," said Irina Lutsenko, an aide to Poroshenko, Russia's state-run media reported.

Ivan Kudrya was a Soviet intelligence officer who was executed by the Nazis in occupied Kiev in 1942. Poroshenko attended the funeral for McCain on Saturday.

McCain visited the Ukranian military on New Year's Eve 2016, in response to Russia's annexation of Crimea and invasion of eastern Ukraine.

"We stand w/ them in their fight against #Putin's aggression," McCain tweeted at the time.
