I also think Austria, Hungary, Czech republic, Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus etc would also protest about having 'Russia' stamped over them.

That's the only bit that's accurate.
Many decades out-of-date.
But accurate

Many cruise lines refer to Southampton as London, some geography lessons required for those illustrating the itineries.

Ah, so this must be what they mean by "the new Europe."

Inverness is the new Edinburgh.
King's Lynn is the new Liverpool.
Le Havre is the new Cherbourg.
Brest is the new Le Havre.
Wexford (or maybe Waterford) is the new Dublin.
Bremerhaven is the new Amsterdam.
And someone tell the EU muckety-mucks that Rostok is the new Brussels.

(But why then is Oslo still the old Oslo?)

At least Vladimir Putin will be happy with the map of the new Russia.

And I clearly remeber the last time I went to Scandinavia that Oslo was in Norway not most of the way in to Sweden.
