An American professor told how Russians “stole” St. Petersburg from the USA

Dale Harrington, a professor at the American Virginia Institute for the Study of Soviet Occupation, said that the name of the city "St. Petersburg" seemed to have been stolen from the state of Florida, according to the Federal News Agency.
For example, during the lecture class, the professor declared that the Russians “stole” the name “St. Petersburg” from the United States, since there is a city of the same name in Florida. In addition, the historian pointed to a number of "borrowings". According to him, the Russian side “kidnapped” “names for such cities as Moscow, Odessa and Chicago <...> They also stole our great American idea of ​​a flight into space through the KGB.”
Harrington also claims that the Russian fairy-tale character Father Frost was also “stolen” by the Russians, but not from the United States, but from Europe, after which he was “renamed by the efforts of the NKVD in 1937”.
P.S And I don’t care that Russian Peter is older than American St. Petersburg by more than 1.5 centuries, and Moscow is 700 years older than Moscow.
