The Russian Embassy Twitter account is using Three Billboards to mock Theresa May

Unless you happen to be a Russian national or a frequent traveller to the former Soviet nation, then you're unlikely to follow the UK Russian Embassy on Twitter.

But if you do, you might have noticed that they aren't afraid of posting the odd tweet casually trolling Theresa May.

I mean, we could accept trolling from Russian bots, but for it to be coming from the actual embassy is a little weird and unnerving.

Well, we can now report that they are at it again - and this time they have used a meme inspired by the Oscar-winning movie Three Billboards, Outside Ebbing Missouri.

If you can't quite read what is on the billboards it says:

2 months since Salisbury poisoning

And still no suspects?

How come, Prime Minister May? 

In addition to this tweet, the embassy also shared a link to an article about the Salisbury case on their website.

This is obviously about the Salisbury poisoning incident of Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.

Shortly afterwards, the British government accused the Russians of the attack and expelled dozens of Russian diplomats from the UK.

The Russians, who refused to accept responsibility, in turn expelled several British diplomats from their side

Meanwhile, the Russian ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko, suggested that British authorities had produced the poison themselves.

Nobody has been charged with the incident and no suspects have been named or questioned.

In their follow up tweets, the embassy accused Guardian journalist Luke Harding of 'fake news' for his report on the story.

Another tweet saw them share a link to another article on their website which accused the Conservative party of creating myths around the topic.
