Here's a daring report from inside the belly of the beast. Please forward it to your Russophobic congressman:

Politics have stretched into the kitchen at the Russian ministry of foreign affairs where a new dish has appeared on the canteen's menu: Chicken Crimea.

"In the Russian Foreign Ministry's canteen what is really a Chicken Kiev is called Chicken Crimea," New York Times reporter Ivan Nechepurenko noted on Twitter as he posted a photograph of the chicken cutlets and translated their new culinary name.

Is nothing sacred? Certainly not French fries.

Another Pulitzer for the New York Times.
