The current name was given to it in the 70s of the 20th century to commemorate the famous Moscow Battle of 1941, where the Soviet division under command of Ivan Panfilov, and in particular, one of its platoons, 28 brave soldiers at a crossroads in Dubosekovo have stopped the assault of German tanks.
