Russian humour in the Crimea: Obama promoted to KGB Colonel

'The newly elected PM of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, tweeted yesterday: “I wonder, after the successful campaign of handing over the Crimea, will Barack be promoted to a colonel?” '  The Russian-language Tweet was accompanied by a Photoshopped picture of Barack Obama wearing a Russian uniform.  (Quoted from the original at PJ Tatler).

Believe it or not, the Crimean PM-elect used yet another photo-shop for his tweet.  The use of mockery is a potent tool.
