Russian woman names son ‘Torput’ – “Putin’s Victory”



After Bebelinas, Pestelinas and Dazdrapermas a new era in naming Russian children has come. Svetlana Mishurova from the city of Voronezh decided to call her son Torput – “Torzhestvo Putina” (“Putin’s Victory”), as she thinks that President Putin is Russia’s only saviour.

The woman petitioned with the passport office to change her son’s name to a new one. She also stated that she wanted to do it when her son was born, but her mother convinced her otherwise, as she considers Putin a being from Hell. However later, having confirmed her orthodoxy, Svetlana’s mother changed her opinion about Putin to the contrary and is not all right with her grandson being named Torput.
