The nameless island of the Kuril ridge was named. He was named after Marshal Vasilevsky.

The name of the geographical object was chosen by deputies of the Sakhalin Regional Duma and residents of the region.

According to the Sakhalin Regional Duma, an online survey was first held on the official website, where all residents could vote “for” or “against”. The name itself was proposed in the Russian Geographical Society. After that, the deputies, taking into account all the responses, unanimously approved the new name.

The island, which needed a name, is part of the group of islands of Tahir in the north of the Kuril ridge. In this group there are only three islands and five small island rocks. This entire group is not inhabited, but serves as a haven for marine animals and birds. Vasilevsky Island is located between the islands of Schetinina and Gromyko. Its length is 230,58 m and its width is 60 m.
