This is a discussion about トビリシ


It is in Georgia, not Russia.

I'm sure if you submit a correction to the database that Jisho uses, they would correct it.

Georgia was belonging to Soviet Socialist Republic . Russia also means Soviet Socialist Republic.

@Kakasi - While many people colloquially used "Russia" to mean the same thing as "USSR", (I'm certain that I did it many times myself, back in the day) it was never a correct usage. Russia was just a part of the USSR, and Georgia was another part. Regardless, they're certainly entirely separate countries today, so this does need to be fixed.

Which brings up my question to @Leebo - how does one go about determining which database Jisho got that from and submitting that correction?

It's from the JMnedict, see here: https://www.edrdg.org/jmdictdb/cgi-bin/entr.py?svc=jmdict&sid=&q=5055160 The entry has already been corrected in the original data source, interestingly by Kim himself. Why Jisho.org wasn't updated yet, I don't know. He probably didn't came around to do it, yet.
