    I wish they'd make their bloody mind up.....

    Dare I dream that Kaliningrad will become Koenigsberg once again?

    "The Volgograd city council passed a measure Thursday to use the name Stalingrad in city statements on the commemoration day, on Russia's May 9 Victory Day and on four other days connected with the battle, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported." So actually they will use that name only on several days in the year. Maybe soon they will call St. Petersburg also "Leningrad" on the 7-th of November. Stalin was a mass murderer but there are streets in many European countries (mostly in France) with his name. Really a strange world...

    Very nice to again dedicate this city to the man responsible for most kills in history.. Also gives a good point of view where Russia pledge their allegiance.

    Indeed; and "Even old New York was once New Amsterdam."
