Russian Ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko, is doing a bit of what looks to be back pedaling. Explaining why he used a still image from the film Harold And Kumar Escape Guantanamo Bay of actor Kal Penn dressed as a terrorist.

The Ambassador insists he didn’t believe Kumar was really a terrorist, here is the reason he gave on why the image used:

“Rather hard to spot a terrorist laughing”.

Noooo...really?

Penn brushed it all of with a laugh.
