I should have called, maybe she would have apologized to me too…

You know I asked them, but they never hacked our elections. Look what we got. Bulgaria, at least gets apologies….

Zakharova: Russia Apologizes for Not Hacking Bulgaria’s Elections

Excerpt:

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, arguably the most articulate woman currently living on planet Earth, has finally realized that concepts like “evidence” are meaningless to a nation where 20% of adults read below a 5th grade level.
To use hip internet terminology, Zakharova has now “embraced the meme”.
Asked by a journalist why Russia “somehow missed [interfering in] the recent elections in Bulgaria”, Zakharova lamented, “the Russian hackers, it seems, had a day off on that day”.

Lavrov Wins April Fools’ Day With Amazing Russian Foreign Ministry Prank

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is well-versed in the teachings of YOLO.
The Ministry announced on its official Facebook page this morning:

The Ministry of foreign affairs of Russia, has developed a pilot for a taped answering machine for Russian diplomatic missions abroad.

Sounds harmless enough. Until you remember what day it is.
This “answering machine” is pure, Siberian gold (skip to 0:30 for English):
“You have reached the Russian Embassy. Your call is very important to us. To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponents, press 1. To use the services of Russian hackers, press 2. To request election interference, press 3 and wait until the next election campaign. Please note that all calls are recorded for quality improvement and training purposes.”
