From the former Bolshoyslobia, Eastern Ukraine. Exclusive to The Spoof. The pro-Russian government of the Eastern Ukraine today announced that the town of Bolshoyslobia has been renamed Trumpograd in honor of the United States president, Donald Trump.

Shortly after that announcement, Russian president Vladimir Putin placed a congratulatory call to Trump, expressing his warmest wishes.

Geopolitical experts believe the move will increase the chances of peace in the Ukraine, where rebels in the eastern region set up their own government some time ago, leading to a bloody war between the west and the east. With Trump popular in western Ukraine, experts see a lessening of tension because of the mutual respect for Trump,

In response, Trump tweeted that his name seems to be all it takes to bring peace to a region, whether in the Middle East or the Ukraine.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
