Bombay's name change to Mumbai was announced in 1995. Almaty was 1993.
Saint Petersburg was 1991. Nowadays you won't hear their previous English
name anymore even when you talk with English speakers who support those
politicians you listed.
Making up fantasy about a group of people you dislike is not going to be
conductive to discussion on an international mailing list
