Russian Foreign Ministry Teases Audiences on April Fool’s

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.
