Russia does not want a metro station named ‘Bucharest’

The Moscow officials do not like the idea of naming a metro station of Sankt Petersburg after the Romanian capital, Bucharest. A letter sent by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the municipality of Sankt Petersburg mentions that Romania is not a state that ca be considered friendly, and the relations with Bucharest stagnate, according to the news portal vesti.md quoted by Adevarul. The document adds that Romania supports NATO, and these factors are enough to justify another name for the metro station that will be inaugurated in December. It is for the first time that Moscow intervenes in the local affairs of Sankt Petersburg. According to the source, the final decision on the name of the metro station still lies with local authorities.
