So, the Russian Embassy is trolling UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Twitter, like all mature political emissaries.

Anyone else feel like Ashton Kutcher might jump out from behind a door and shout 'You've been Punk'd', any second now?

Or that you'll wake up from a dream you were having about being in a Black Mirror episode?

Or that your life is essentially on massive meme of despair?

Well that anxious feeling is about to go up a notch.

A really horrible, creepy frog that, according to the BBC, has become a kind of internet mascot for the Alt-Right movement.

At the end of last year the anti-bigotry Anti-Defamation League added Pepe to its database of hate symbols.

Told you he was horrible.

Earlier in the year, the Twitter-mad (about-to-be) POTUS had apparently retweeted a picture of himself as Pepe.

You may have also seen Pepe in the form of Hitler and a KKK member...

ANYWAY, not two days ago the Russian Embassy posted this tweet.

And this isn't the first time the Embassy have trolled a world leader.

Yep, at Christmas they called President Obama a lame, but cute, duckling .

It was unclear precisely what the Pepe tweet was regarding, but the Russian Embassy then released this statement to clarify their meme usage.

The statement is essentially outlining the argument that Britain has a witch-hunt against Russia and will do anything to sully burgeoning US-Russian relations.

Read it for yourself, it certainly is interesting.

But must a meme be it's precursor?
