While we’re not denying it’s had bad press of late (that dossier, the hacks, a bombing campaign in Syria and continued support of Human Rights abuser Bashar el-Assad, but hey, who’s counting), nobody can accuse the Russians of not knowing how to have fun. Least of all those who head up its UK Twitter account, run from the London Embassy.
Seriously, the levels of sass are off the fucking chain here. Regularly wading through the jib of red tops and broadsheets to make a zinger for political point scoring, they don’t always make sense, but their droll political undercurrent rarely fails to amuse.
In fact, it’s any wonder they haven’t responded to the Ukraine conflict with a GIF of Justin Timberlake and the caption ‘Crimea river’.
