Putin Pub, one of the most popular bars in Jerusalem, has had “Putin” removed from its name, which was the bar’s trademark for many years.
“The name was given by the previous owner, as a gimmick. We do not want any connection to politics,” the owners told Ynet, explaining their reasoning.
The bar is located in the city center of Jerusalem on Jaffa street, with its name finally being changed 21 years. The place also hosts many Ukrainian and Russian tourists.
