They also tagged Trump in this tweet.
Reactions to the tweet were also … interesting.

The Russian embassy to the UK just used a white supremacist symbol to troll critics of Trump's Russia ties. That's where we are now. https://t.co/YXzZU5YBUR

Yeah. Not sure what to make of this to be honest … has the Russian Embassy in the U.K. embraced a symbol of the alt-right/white nationalist movement or do they see it as some extension into connecting with the US?
Either way, one has to sit back and wonder if this is real life.
