The Russian Embassy in the U.S. ironically replied to a post by the Central intelligence Agency on Twitter about the world Cup. Diplomats suggested the CIA to update a geographical map of the host country of the FIFA world Cup and statistics of the Crimea and its inhabitants.
Management had earlier posted a tweet congratulating the participants of the quarterfinals of the tournament and presented a card with brief information about each country. The map of Russia cited without the Crimea. In the text it was noted that the area of the championship host state is 17 098 242 km, and its population is 142.3 million.
“Congratulations accepted, the CIA. Please update the map and data. Population: 146,9 million (January 2018). Area: 17 191 125 kilometer”, — I wrote to the Embassy in his Twitter.
