One of the Swedish families, in which a newborn baby was born, decided that she would name her son in honor of Russian President Vladimir Putin. But the local Internal Revenue Service has forbidden to give such a name, reports the publication “News of Sweden”.
According to government regulations, the names of newborns must be approved by the State Tax Agency. The couple received a reply from the department: “The Swedish tax office has decided to reject your application for naming your child the name Vladimir Putin.”
The refusal was motivated by the fact that such a name is capable of misleading.
Earlier in Russia, a newborn baby was named after the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden.
