Duma proposes to rename Ukraine to Bandershtat in response to “Muscovy” :: News


State Duma deputy Mikhail Sheremet (Republic of Crimea) proposed renaming Ukraine US colony Bandershtat, reports RIA news.

Earlier, a petition appeared on the website of the office of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to rename Russia to Muscovy. It proposes to replace the term “Russian” with “Moscow”, and “Russian Federation” with “Moscow Federation”.

Mikhail Sheremet called such petitions “crazy and stupid forms” with which Ukrainian nationalists try to express themselves.
