    The two told US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, that the non-existent country of Binomo was experiencing meddling in their elections from none other than… Russia.

    Haley’s confident response? “Of course they did!”

    The ambassador then said that the US was aware of the supposed transgression and that it would continue to monitor it closely just as Washington deals with all issues “that keep coming up in the South China Sea”.

    “Nikki Haley is a member of Trump’s cabinet. An ambassador to the UN holds a lot more clout in their country than on ours… It’s very funny when such a person is responsible for foreign relations in the US,” Stolyarov said in an interview with Russian media.

    The famous Russian duo discussed the affairs of the fictional South China Sea island nation Binomo as well as the alleged harassment of the Ukrainian president by Kevin Spacey.

    Binomo, “not far from Vietnam”, was invented by Vovan and Lexus for the telephone call. During the 22-minute conversation the pranksters raised concerns over Russian interference.

    The pranksters also asked Haley if she had heard about claims made by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko about Hollywood celebrity Kevin Spacey harassing him in 2015. The ambassador promised to research this topic because she had been unaware of the harassment.

    Earlier this year Vovan and Lexus pranked US Congresswoman Maxine Waters, convincing her that Russian hackers had rigged the elections in a fictional African country called Limpopo to install a puppet leader named Ai Bolit.

    Limpopo happens to be a province in the north of South Africa, but Binomo does not exist on the world map.

    “Do you know Binomo?” the prankster asked. “They have declared independence. They had elections, and we suppose Russians had its intervention.”

    “Yes, of course they did, absolutely,” Haley replied.

    Haley, whose real name is Nimrata Randhawa born from an Indian American Sikh family, said the US would “continue to remind” Russia “what their place is”.

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, responded to Haley’s remarks. “Nikki, do you really want Russia to remember all of its ‘places’ in the world?”
