It's April Fool's Day—“Day of Laughter” in the Russian-speaking world—and the
Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has seized the opportunity to indulge
in some geopolitical satire, delighting in the attention Russia has drawn for
interfering in the 2016 American presidential election.

The MFA posted a video[2] of a joke Russian Embassy voicemail recording on its
Facebook page this morning with the caption, “The Russian Ministry of Foreign
Affairs has worked out a full voicemail recording for all Russian diplomatic
missions abroad.”

Добрый день! Вы позвонили в посольстве России. Если Вы хотите заказать звонок
российского дипломата Вашем политическим конкурентам, нажмите 1. Чтобы
воспользоваться услугами русских хакеров, нажмите 2. По вопросам
вмешательства в выборы, нажмите 3 и ждите начала избирательной кампании.
В целях повышения качества услуг все разговоры записываются.

“Good day! 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 monitored for quality control and training purposes.”

Take a listen here (the English version of the voicemail begins at 0:29):
