US President elect, Donald Trump may soon have a street in Russia named after him. 34-year-old Sergey Bizyukin has launched a petition to rename a little alley into “Donald Trump Street” in honor of the US President-elect, saying almost 300 people had already signed.
“Some saw it as a joke and signed because it was fun, some stood for normalization of US-Russia ties, and some signed because they don’t like the name of Godless Street,” Bizyukin said.
The town Ryazan is about 125 miles southeast of Moscow on the Oka River and has a population of 500,000. Its major industries are electronics and oil refining.
Bizyukin says he feels the US is often unfairly portrayed as a threat to Russia but that the people in Ryazan and elsewhere have a much more positive attitude.
