The diplomats posted the entry with the scenes from the movie “Forrest Gump” in that moment, when his character says “Shit happens”. The footage was accompanied and the appropriate signature: “the assignment of Everest. Digital shit happens. For example, it would be possible to hear what someone’s young husband led the British expedition to Tibet”.

Under the “young husband” in a tweet refers to the mission of the British Colonel Angasana in Tibet in the beginning of the century, became an important stage of the colonial struggle between Russia and Britain. Thus, the diplomats defeated the last name of historical figure (Angheben — Younghusband, Young husband, young husband).
While English-speaking Twitter users expressed surprise at such jokes, wonder if diplomats are drunk or are under the influence of drugs and offering to act “like an Embassy, not as a Troll factory”.
Recall that the Russian Embassy in the UK is not the first time acts with outrageous Twitter posts: so, earlier it published a cartoon which compared the EU with the pig pen.
