Is it UK or Russia? Is it EU or I?

In Romanian "UK" is "RU" (Regatul Unit), which is often confusing because RU often also stands for Russia (like in all those bumper stickers or in www.*.ru for example).

The "EU" is "UE" (Uniunea Europeana) but it is almost never used this way, "EU" is used instead, which can become confusing as well because it is also Romanian for "I". So the sticker "I ♡ EU" becomes "Eu ♡ EU". Also, see here for another example.
