Russian Embassy, Putin Respond to Sanctions

Earlier on Thursday, President Barack Obama announced new sanctions against Russian officials and intelligence services in response to various hacks. Now, the Russian Embassy in the United Kingdom and Vladimir Putin have issued their responses.

The Russian Embassy in the U.K. caused a bit of a stir with their unorthodox use of a picture of a duckling and their rather childish patois.

Conversely, Putin's response was considerably more measured, saying that Russia may retaliate with sanctions of its own.
