Dirk Krischenowski, a spokesman for .Cities, the association of the «city» domains, and CEO of .BERLIN, advocating the creation of the domain zone for the capital of Germany, also took part in the campaign of collecting signatures in Moscow.

He mentioned the same activities are organized in Berlin to support TLD for the city. According to Dirk Krischenowski this kind of «voting» helps to build a community around the idea of .BERLIN implementation.
