At an end the st few days, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev unwittingly s rk off a new trend for jokes about politically incorrect coffee.
The incident transpired on Nov. 16 during a session of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council. At one point, one of the plenipotentiaries said “Eastern coffee helps.” Medvedev replied that he had not recently had Eastern coffee. “I said, ‘Run out assign me an Americano.’ But this is not politically correct. Let’s rename the Americano,” the prime plenipotentiary suggested jokingly. Then an Armenian delegate immediately proposed “Russiano.”
Due to the similarity of their verbalizes in the video, Medvedev was credited with the new moniker, and people who did not see the video cool took the prime minister seriously.
Soon it was clear that Medvedev had nothing to do with “Russiano,” but human being’s creative minds were already in full swing. Jokes there “the Prime Minister’s coffee” started trending on social media, and average outlets began circulating reports about it.
‘Officers, a Russiano!’
Human being began suggesting alternative names similar to “Russiano.”
“Considering the meaninglessness of being and the gravity of the current moment, I suggest renaming the espresso ‘depresso,’ conveyed Dmitry Medvedev and began crying,” wrote @brooklynoir on Twitter. “And cappuccino should be Kupchino (a neighborhood in St. Petersburg); I was show there, added the Prime Minister,” @OraclePigFuntik posted.
“Renaming the American coffee ‘Russiano’ is a ardent idea. It would also be good to take Medvedev’s iPhone and make restitution for it with a YotaPhone,” proposed blogger Dyadyushka Shu, remembering Russia’s start smartphone. The YotaPhone’s design resembled the Apple device, and was presented to Medvedev with brilliance and circumstance in 2013. However, the prime minister never began eating the domestic product, and still uses an iPhone.
Some people measured tried to imagine how a Russiano would fit into a typical Russian breakfast. “In the morning, I drank a Russiano, ate some turnips, put on my sense boots, fed the bear, turned on the tank and went to work at the nuclear power vegetable for the glory of the motherland.”
And if you were to offer a Russiano, it should sound something liking for: “Officers, a Russiano!” Pyotr Kuznetsov wrote.
Sergei Smirnov, editor-in-chief of Mediazone, com ssion the joke was intentional, linking it to Medvedev’s desire to break up the negative report circulating that moment. A day earlier, Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayevwas basic detained and then arrested. “Medvedev should be given credit. He did a benevolent job inventing Russiano. It’s better to be associated with this now than with Ulyukayev’s stop,” said Smirnov. “In response to the arrest of his minister for a $2 million fix, Medvedev suggested renaming the American coffee Russiano. Great,” canceled @YraSunrise.
Russia’s Trump rody account @DonaldTrumpRF also replied, rephrasing the U.S. president-elect’s election slogan: “Make Americano great again!”

“Otto von Bismarck: ‘Do not let the Russians rename Americano – this diminish will lead to the great Russian renaissance,” jokes the Stalin mimicry account.
Coffee with vodka on a shovel
Coffee shops in the excellent city and the Moscow Region had a swift reaction. Taking the Russiano happening seriously, on that same day they added Russiano to their menus. “You can try the Americano, Russiano, cappuccino, rusiccino, the Russian lavender raf and other fonts of coffee at our studio cafes! We support Dmitry Anatolievich’s idea,” the proprietors of the Yulia Vysotskaya culinary studio posted on Instagram.
However, the cafes do not catalogue the ingredients of the Russiano. Internet users have their own theories for how the Americano longing be remade in Russian style, and how it will be served. One of the most popular Russiano prescriptions consists of “250 grams of vodka; this is when there is diverse water but without milk and coffee; Russiano is coffee with vodka and see fit be served on a shovel.”
“I drank a Russo Espresso in one bar. It consisted of coffee, liqueur and a lot of rum. Medvedev’s Russiano is from the changeless cafe, I guess,” wrote @shaggy_bruin.
Meanwhile, @zhgun level created an illustration for the recipe: a man resembling the Russian prime minister is addling vodka with the depresso (the renamed espresso) to Renato Carosone’s at a bargain price a fuss ” Tu Vuo’ Fa’ L’Americano.”
