Wrong geocoding address in city (Minsk)

I've used this request to reverse geocode addresses by lat lon: I've had following response: {

"licence" : "Data © OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL 1.0.", "osm_id" : "305685489", "address" : {

"suburb" : "Восток", "city" : "Minsk", "house_number" : "117", "road" : "проспект Независимости", "county" : "Первомайский район", "postcode" : "721859", "country" : "Belarus", "country_code" : "by", "atm" : "Приорбанк"

}, "lon" : "27.6344044", "place_id" : "1412286", "lat" : "53.9308222", "display_name" : "Приорбанк, 117, проспект Независимости, Восток, Minsk, Первомайский район, 721859, Belarus", "osm_type" : "node"

} As you can see there is county field in response, but it is wrong. I tried to find this name on the map and and found this is administrative area with a4 level. According to following document county level is a2. Why API returns county field for a4 level areas? Could you fix that pleas? Thank you in advance.

That's a data problem. The 'rayons' of Minsk have been changed from admin level 9 to 6 in this changeset:
