Shit's getting serious in the world now. Fortunately, there's plenty of toilet paper.

Four Russians were detained by cops in Moscow over the weekend for allegedly trying to toilet-paper the US embassy by lobbing rolls over a security fence. Via the English-language Moscow Times:

There have been a spate of similar protests at embassies recently linked to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

On Saturday, Ukrainian activists in Kiev wreaked havoc in front of the Russian Embassy and in retribution Russian lawmaker Vitaly Milonov on Sunday staged a protest at the Ukrainian Consulate in St. Petersburg.

It was unclear whether the "toilet paper protest" was also connected to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

The detained tossers may be part of the estimated 71 percent of Russians with a negative view of the U.S. Or they may just be Auburn fans.
