The battle between Russia and the UK heats up online

Although the Russian Embassy's official response to Theresa May's sanctions have been somewhat subdued, its social media activity has been less than restrained. 

In a series of tweets, the embassy has poked and proded, trolled, and made fun of the UK. 

Recently the Russian embassy tweeted an image of a thermometer describing the temperature of relations as dropping to -23C with the caption "we are not afraid of cold weather".

Subsequent tweets implied the UK government was spreading fake news, and threatened "equal and opposite" Russian retaliation to any imposed sanctions.
