The Ukrainian Weekly has for many decades used a particular style when printing the names of individuals in our newspaper. On first reference within a story, an individual’s full name is spelled out. On every additional reference, The Weekly uses the honorific Mr. or Ms. It is long past time to drop this honorific for the current president of the Russian Federation. He will from this point forward be referred to by his last name, or by some other word that identifies him as the leader of the Russian Federation.
