If confirmed, two famous Russian internet celebrities may have pulled off one of their greatest feats as they did a 20-minute call with US Ambassador to the UN, Ms Nikki Haley, just after the UN vote on Jerusalem, posing as the Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki to get her position on Russia, Ukraine and the fictional island of Binomo.
Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov put the result online, which is quite hilarious.

Poland was one of the 30 countries that abstained from voting on the issue to the great welcoming of the US authorities.
After issuing the US thanks to Poland for abstaining from voting on Jerusalem, the discussion turns towards international issues. At great length, Poland’s stance towards Russia and Ukraine is discussed and then the conversation gets really out of hand as the two Russians want Ms Haley to elaborate on the fictional island of Binomo:
“You know Binomo?”
“Yes, yes,” Haley replied.
“They declared independence. They had elections and we suppose Russians had its intervention,” the Russian comic states.
To which Ms Haley responds: “Yes, of course they did, absolutely. We’ve been watching that very closely, and I think we will continue to watch that as we deal with the issues that keep coming up about the South China Sea,”
The Russian prankster then asks what the US was going to do about it.
“Let me find out exactly what our stance is on that, and what if anything the US is doing or thinks should be done, and I will report back to you on that as well,“ Ms Haley responds.
When asked for comment on the release of the prank, Ms Haley’s spokesman John Degory, said: “we have nothing to share on that at this time.”
