HOW EMBARRASSING! I wonder if Hillary got the gift to give Lavrov from Obama?
Russian media have been poking fun at the US secretary of state over a translation error on a gift she presented to her Russian counterpart.
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."
