Monkey Sees, Monkey Does

The municipality of Prague wants to rename the square on which stands the Russian embassy in honour of Boris Nemtsov…

The Russians will laugh at this stupidity, and Prague will spend money on absolute nonsense. That is all that will happen. Ordinary Czechs don’t give a fuck about Boris Nemtsov, and the latter has never done anything for the Czech Republic.

But little did I realize how unoriginal the people in Prague that came up with this cringy initiative are. There already is a Boris Nemtsov Plaza in Washington D.C., named so in 2017. In 2018, Vilnius and Kiev were added to the list of proud cities featuring Russian Embassy addresses on Boris Nemtsov Square.
