    Indeed, time for every tank you can muster, and don't forget paratroopers behind enemy lines.

    Nobody would expect it. Not even Putin. That's why it would work so well.

    Meanwhile in Kazakhstan:

    I think it's a good initiative. May be America will also rename Washington DC to Donald?

    How about New York changing into Trump Tower City

    The best thing to do ofc is someone awfully rich to buy that tower and break it down stone for stone and replace it by a cottage.

    Astana is a newly build city, and "Astana" is just the kazakh word for capital, so it's not like the renaming is so terrible

    And we already have Vladimir city in Russia for about 1000 years. Looks like our ancestors knew we'll need it.

    If they change the name of this place to the District of Trump my life's ambition will be to cleanse it with nuclear fire, the only thing that could possibly make it clean

    Hardly sufficient.
    Looking forward to Putinovo, Putingrad, or possibly St. Putinsburg.:goodjob:

    St. Putinsburg would be too old-fashioned, and Putinovo sounds rather like a village name.
    Putingrad is the best choice!

    If they rename it, they should build the worlds largest sewage treatment plant ever built in it.

    Finland would be the last country which would Russians want to conquer, they will not attack them till they will be prepared to conquer whole Europe. Its their diplomatical bridge since the end of WW2.


    Its terrible because I remember only Astana and Almaty. I know all capitals in the world but I deny learn the new ones.
    Plus they will have to rename it in the next 20 years when will the cult of personality fade.

    I wouldn't be so sure about it. Other countries also named their capitals and large cities after their founding fathers and it often stays for much longer than 20 years.

    I recently came across a claim that a lot of Russians are in Latvia. A lot of those Russians don't have Latvian or Russian citizenship, making them stateless, though I'm sure Russia and Latvia have some accord to help them out. But hey, if that's a key to the Baltic, eat your hearts out, Tom Clancys.

    It's in Serbia, so doesn't entirely fit the pattern :)
    There's also Putivl' city in Ukraine.

    Hundreds of thousands, mostly in Latvia and Estonia. Live there for almost 30 years already.
    Baltic States are hesitant to give them citizenship, probably because if they have citizenship, they can vote and bring "wrong" politicians to power.
