Sir: Not long ago, new street-name signs were put up on the Nevsky Prospect in St Petersburg. They bear three lines of text: the first reads "Nevsky Prospect" in Russian letters, the second the same in Latin letters, the third line reads, also in Latin letters, "Coca-Cola".
Communist successes in the recent elections ("Red flag is raised over Russia again", 19 December) should not surprise.
