New US Embassy in Moscow Address Honors Ukraine Separatists

The US Embassy in Moscow’s official address has been changed to a building bearing the name of pro-Kremlin rebels in Ukraine, according to Moscow authorities on Wednesday.

8 Bolshoi Devyatinsky Lane served as the embassy’s previous address.According to the municipal hall, approximately 280,000 people cast votes to determine the new address.According to the statement, the modification was made when Moscow council members suggested honouring the “defenders of Donbas” on the city’s map. Donbas is a territory in Ukraine with a significant Russian-speaking population that Russia claims it is liberating as part of its military campaign.

The United States embassy in Russia now has a name for its open space in front of the embassy’s main entrance, according to a statement from Moscow city council.After opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, who was shot and killed in front of the Kremlin in 2015, a Washington, D.C., street was dedicated in his honour in February 2018.
