Everything is quite simple. According to Aleksey Shvets, the main thing is not to overdry a roast beef and prepare a salad dressing with attention. If you add a little too much of any ingredient, you’ll hardly would like to eat the result.

And while you are cooking, let me share my concerns. As long as I can remember, my name is always distorted and mangled by all sorts of inattentive clumsy people. Starting from the teacher in the first grade and ending with the passport office. Slednev, Slyudnev, Sletnev are the most lovely options. I stopped being offended with that in elementary school.

The most amazing that my name was always clearly and correctly spelled in Western Ukraine, where I lived and studied for six years. Whether due to the innate politeness, whether due to the attention typical to Ukrainian-speaking residents of Western Ukraine. They almost never mangled this native Russian name. Only Russian-speaking did.

Naturally, this created a bunch of nicknames and aliases. So I had a funny childhood. My wives in my adult life, of course, were first angry with my family name, but then got used. The first wife even decided to leave it as a souvenir after our divorce. But, let’s leave it aside.

In Hong Kong, people had so many difficulties with pronunciation of my name, that my already extensive collection was enlarged. It was funny, when one Chinese girl asked how to pronounce my last name. She tried to pronounce it for about five minutes. What a persistence. But she did not manage, and we agreed that she would call me only Alex. It’s easier.

Petya Listerman offered to replace the first letter of my name with ‘B’ and write it on business cards. He says I’ll be much more popular, a fucking marketer. But I have less and less interest on local market, and Petya is not really original, I was already called like that before.

What really worries me is our visa and registration office where they decided to change my name without my letting me know. They added one extra letter in English spelling of my name fin my foreign passport.

In the far 2000 I received a passport very urgently, and I did not have time to quarrel about that. And what was most outrageous, the state changed my name. So now, I am ‘Oleksandr’ in my foreign passport. And this makes me angry.

Therefore, I have a question to the experts. While I do not have yet a long history with visas, documents and company abroad, I would like to initiate a change of my name and last name in the correct and normal spelling ‘Aleksandr Slyadnev’.

I wonder what is the procedure, what to do and whom to contact? I would appreciate your help and assistance. Thank you.
