Citizen's of Russia, Accept our Apologies

Dear Citizen's of Russia,

Please accept our apology for the mistake regarding the little "token of our appreciation" given to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov.

Hillary Clinton gave Sergei Lavrov a mock "reset" button, symbolising US hopes to mend frayed ties with Moscow.

But he said the word the Americans chose, "peregruzka", meant "overloaded" or "overcharged", rather than "reset".

Daily newspaper Kommersant declared on its front page: "Sergei Lavrov and Hillary Clinton push the wrong button."

Again, please accept our apology for all the reasons stated below (see last paragraph: "Open Letter to the E.U.")
