The Russian Embassy in the U.K. said Mount Everest was part of Russia on its Twitter account before deleting the tweet on Monday.
“Good morning! (Mount Everest, Russia),” the erroneous post read, with a photograph of the snow-capped summit attached.
Wedged between Nepal and China, Mount Everest is nearly 2,500 kilometers away from the nearest Russian border.
While the post might have been written off as an honest mistake, some observers quipped that “Crimea is not enough.”
