Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Driving through D.C., you'll notice that there are these little bonus signs in front of Russian Embassy buildings ... Turns out, these are part of a larger game of "street sign diplomacy" between the U.S. and Russia, as well as a host of other countries around the world. In 2018, the part of Wisconsin Avenue that the Russian Embassy sits on was renamed "Boris Nemtsov Plaza." Nemtsov was an opposition politician in Russia and a longtime critic of President Vladimir Putin. He was assassinated in Moscow in 2015. In response, Russian politicians moved to rename a street of their own. Moscow is currently considering whether it'll rename the U.S. Embassy's street "North American Dead End."

The video in the article runs about two minutes, and is interesting. I never knew about this little bit if tit-for-tat among the nations.

Gotta like the justice of having to list your address as the adversary you killed.

"Nemtsov was an opposition politician in Russia and a longtime critic of President Vladimir Putin. He was assassinated in Moscow in 2015."

Yet Trump will happily have a kissy face meeting with Vlad in private.

He will be kissing more than his face.
