The CIA’s tweet addressed to Russian speakers included a picture asking in Russian: “Do you know what you can do as a CIA linguist?” It then cryptically promised would-be spies a place on a noble mission to “unveil the truth.”

The CIA’s call for help did not go unnoticed by the Russian Foreign Ministry, which on Monday posted a witty response to both its Russian and English-language accounts.
“CIA thanks for support & promotion of Russian language. Why have U been hiding it? We are ready to assist with experts & recommendations,” the ministry said.
