On April 1, even Russia issues April fools jokes. On Twitter they suggested people listen to their new automated voicemail system and asked for feedback.
First it is played in Russian, then 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 opponent, 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.’
While anyone with a brain realizes this is a joke, don’t be surprised if this puts the left into constant hysteria. This might be the “solid proof” of hacking they have been looking for!
