Even offices you might think of as less than humorous have been having some fun with this year’s April Fool’s Day.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted a clip in its Facebook Page with an audio message of the automated telephone switchboard for its Russian Embassies.
Among the given options: “To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponent, press 1” in both Russian and English. Press 2 “to use the services of Russian hackers,” and 3 to “request election interference.”
AP reports that a Russian ministry duty officer confirmed that the post was an official April Fool’s joke.
