Many people celebrated the Democratic Party’s takeover over the House, on social media, but one person in particular couldn’t help switching to the Russian language to celebrate, what he believes to be, a defeat of Vladimir Putin. Michael McFaul, who served as Barack Obama’s ambassador to Moscow and became an avid commentator on all things Russian after leaving office, is apparently overjoyed to see his favorite party back in control of the lower chamber of the US Congress. He cheered the result with a post in Russian saying: “Victory! Regards to VVP,” using the initials of Russia’s president, whose full name is Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Another post simply said “Yes!” in Russian in response to the expected victory.
