Bizyukin has launched a petition to rename the little alley into "Donald Trump Street" in honor of the US President-elect, saying almost 300 people had already signed.
"Some saw it as a joke and signed because it was fun, some stood for normalization of US-Russia ties, and some signed because they don't like the name of Godless Street," Bizyukin said, shivering in the cold wind.
He acknowledges that his petition is less about Trump himself and more about using Trump's popularity in Russia to advocate for change in US-Russian relations.
'Make Ryazan Great Again'
Bizyukin says he feels the US is often unfairly portrayed as a threat to Russia but that the people in Ryazan and elsewhere have a much more positive attitude.
"There are enough options for cooperation, for friendship, for economic cooperation, as well as culture and other fields."

It's almost as if the Russian government and Donald Trump are working together to trigger liberals which will in turn trigger conservatives.
This is going to be a crazy 4-8 years.
