Deputies of the Irkutsk Duma put forward to rename the Kirov square, named after a prominent early Bolshevik leader in the Soviet Union, to the Count Speransky Place in the honour of Mikhail Speransky (1772 – 1839) who was a Russian reformist during the reign of Alexander I of Russia, to which he was a close advisor. Speransky is referred to as the father of Russian liberalism.
