Oh those Russkis…they kill me

I thought Russkis, like Krauts, had ?a humour bypass in their genes.

Turns out no.

The Russian Government has poked fun at claims it interfered with the US election days after Vladimir Putin said the accusation was a ‘lie’.

This morning, the Russian Foreign Ministry posted an audio recording of an apparent?automated telephone service to aid Russian embassies. ?In the recording, which was published on its Facebook page, it says: ‘To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponent, press one.

‘To use the services of Russian hackers, press two’ and ‘To request election interference, press three.’

A spokesperson for the Ministry confirmed the post was an official joke as part of April Fool’s Day.

On Thursday, the Russian President fiercely denied interfering in the US elections by using a similar phrase to former President?George H.W. Bush’s ‘Read my lips’ quote.

While speaking?at the International Arctic Forum on a panel moderated by CNBC, he said: ‘Watch my lips, no.?All those things are fictional, illusory and provocations, lies.

‘All these are used for domestic American political agendas. The anti-Russian card is played by different political forces inside the United States to trade on that and consolidate their positions inside.

‘We said on numerous occasions and I reiterate that we are confident ? And know for sure that opinion polls in the Unites States show that very many people are ? friendly towards the Russian Federation and I’d like to tell these people that we perceive and regard the United States as a great power with which we want to establish good partnership relations.’

However, despite Mr Putin’s insistence, U.S. intelligence community stated they believe there was an interference in October last year.

Funny guys those Russkis.
