President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have no problem trading criticism amid escalating Cold War-like tensions.
But while their exchanges have been sober, Putin’s deputy appears to have taken to Twitter with a more light-hearted jab.
A tweet from the account of Dmitry Rogozin, deputy prime minister of Russia, ridiculed Obama by juxtaposing an image of the Russian president with a cheetah and another of his American counterpart holding a puppy.
“We have different values and allies,” the tweet read.
