Hit the Road Barack

It seems like Barack Obama decided to follow the principle “last one who leaves turns off the light”. He ordered imposing new sanctions against Russia. However, the Russian side took it with good humour. For example, the Russian embassy in the UK expressed its reaction on new sanctions via Twitter. Western media immediately reacted on this tweet. The Washington Times decided that Russia was making fun of the recent diplomatic row between the two countries. Mashable didn’t want to believe that Russian diplomats responded to the conflict with a meme. The Independent wrote that the Russian response “was fast, and in some cases, rather amusing”. Business Insider called it “a snide response”.
