At the Corner of Screw and You

This isn't as good as putting them on "You're Ugly and Emit a Strong and Unpleasant Odor Boulevard," but it's good:

It's a just matter of days before Russian diplomats in Ukraine start working on Volunteer Battalion Street, a quiet tree-lined thoroughfare in downtown Kyiv.

The street, named in honor of the irregular forces battling pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, is home to the Russian Consulate.

Kyiv authorities renamed it last week after the Ukrainian fighters in what appears to be a thinly veiled barb against Russia, whose leaders are widely accused of backing the separatist rebels.

I'd send Ukraine weapons just to reward them for this.

UPDATE: The Russian embassy here is on Wisconsin Ave. NW.

We should rename the street "Ukraine is Free Ave. NW."
