Ordinary Russians Also "Retaliate" To Obama's Sanctions

Tyler Durden's picture

As is widely known by now, Barack Obama, in an executive order, earlier this week as well as moments ago in a very dramatic follow up performance, decided to sanction a handful of Russian military leaders and Kremlinites close to Putin. He didn't touch Putin of course, that could be seen as too strong a signal one which may cut off German gas supplies for a day or two. Remember: there are "costs" and stuff. So while Russian official debate just how to retaliate best to US and European sanctions, as they said they would, ordinary Russians are taking matters into their own hands. And on twitter. Here are some examples in which the "Russian on the street" has some fun with Obama's sanctions, and prohibits the US president and people close to him to approach, enter and/or use the facilities.

A zoom up:

The poster prhibits from entering the abovementioned individuals, among which:

  • Barack Obama
  • John Kerry
  • Hillary Clinton
  • Bill Clinon
  • Samantha Power
  • Pussy Riot
  • Adolf Hitler
  • Benito Mussollini

and others.

It continues:

Here the offended Russian says the following:

  • Barack Obama is prohibited from entering the toilet in our office
  • Members of the US Congress are prohibited from using our cafeteria and toilet

and finally:

  • Barack Obama is forbidden from eating the bananas in our fridge.

Needless to say, Russians are hardly taking the US "escalation" very seriously.

In conclusion:
