For the first time in memory, the White House has failed to send the Russian President warm wishes for Russia Day, an annual celebration of Russian culture held on the rather dubious date of 12 June.
The Press Secretary of the Russian Embassy to the United States, Nikolai Lakhonin confirmed the strange oversight saying,
“We can confirm that we did not receive any greetings from the American side on the occasion of Russia Day. This happens for the first time as far as we remember. Make your own conclusions”.
It seems that a US administration supposed to be controlled by Russia doesn’t even remember the send a greeting for Russia Day.
At least North Korea remembered.
