Putin cronies clearly not taking the Obama administration’s sanctions seriously

Russian officials are mocking Obama’s soft response (economic sanctions against eleven individuals) to Putin’s aggression in Crimea and possible plans to take Ukraine by joking that the U.S. president is in fact a closet KGB agent.

Below is a tweet from the new Prime Minister of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, who is on Obama’s sanction list:

There’s also a mock KGB personnel file for “Boris Huseinovich Obamov.”

I don’t think they’re taking Obama’s “response” seriously.”

If the Russians really want to crank up the funny they should create a picture of Obama in a KGB uniform filling out NCAA tourney brackets.
