Russian Foreign Ministry Asks St. Petersburg to Rename Subway Station

Russia's Foreign Ministry sent a letter to St. Petersburg authorities expressing its discontent with their intention to name a new subway station "Bukharestskaya" (Bucharest). The station is situated on a street with this name. The ministry states that Romania cannot be called friendly; due to Romanian support for NATO; and the "regime of Mikheil Saakashvili" in Georgia. St. Petersburg's Vice Governor of St. Petersburg, Vassili Kichedzhi stated that the local authorities should take into account the opinion of the Foreign Ministry.
