Russia To Name Street After Donald Trump

By Ikenga Chronicles January 10, 2017

The Russian town of Ryazan called ‘’Godless Street’’ is set to be renamed after the U.S President-elect and Republican Billionaire Donald Trump.

The name “Godless” was given to the street during the years of Communism when religion was rejected.

The Russian man at the centre of the renaming, 34-year-old Sergey Bizyukin, has launched a petition to rename the little alley into “Donald Trump Street” in honour 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.

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.

“There are enough options for cooperation, for friendship, for economic cooperation, as well as culture and other fields,” he says.

The petition has borrowed from Trump’s presidential election campaign, with Bizyukin giving it the slogan “Make Ryazan Great Again.”

Many in Ryazan say they believe that a Trump administration will foster ties with Russia, building on a good personal relationship between Russian President Vladimir Putin and President-elect Trump.

“They have good ties,” one man said. “Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin respects Donald Trump exactly the same way Donald Trump respects Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.”

“He’s positive, good,” he said. “I think they will be friends and everything will be fine. I like Trump. I like his family, his ties with children, wife — all of that. He does not want to go to war, he wants to
make friends. What’s bad about it?”
