Kosino-Ukhtomskaya//The new Kosino-Ukhtomskaya metro station gets its name from the Kosino-Ukhtomsky district where it will be built. This spot once featured one of the oldest villages in the Moscow region: Kosino. According to one account, the name ‘Kosino’ came from the Russian word kosa, meaning ‘plaid’, because of a long sandbank formed by three local lakes: Chyornoye, Beloye, and Svyatoye (Black, White, and Holy, respectively). This also happens to be the place where the future Russian Emperor, Peter the Great, tried his hand at marine navigation./Opening in 2015

Nekrasovka//Since this station is located on the territory of former irrigation fields (Lyuberetskiye Fields), the architects tried to reflect the land's ecology in the station's design. Nekrasovka Station will be erected in the district by the same name in Moscow's southeast administrative region. The village has been called Nekrasovka since the end of the 19th century, deriving its name from the estate's last owner, Yegor Nekrasov. He was a merchant who traded tea in Moscow and owned eateries.  At the beginning of the 20th century, the Moscow city government bought the land from Nekrasov to construct irrigation fields. Later, the Lyuberetsky aeration station was built here./Opening in 2015
