    It seems like Barack Obama has decided to follow the principle 'last one who leaves turns off the light' and ordered to impose new sanctions against Russia. But the Russian side took it with humor.

    beware of the lame duck

    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 did'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."

      D...Numb

      It seems that after bombing Syria, the US president has really decided that the "mission is accomplished" and turned to his Gulf friends in order to ask them to clean up the mess.
