Russian embassy in Vilnius

Vilnius Mayor Remigijus Šimašius has proposed naming a square next to the Russian Embassy after Russian democracy.

After murder of Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov in 2015, some conservative politicians suggested that the square next to the Russian Embassy should be named after Nemtsov, also suggesting to rename the street the embassy is on. Meanwhile, the mayor suggests that this could be done in another location.
