Someone has egg on their face this morning in Montrose. 'Irish Ukrainians not Russians' is the new 'Derp'.
This all came about during a feature about the ongoing turmoil in Crimea between Russia and Ukraine on Primetime on RTÉ One last night, and one of the correspondents got stuck in a technical loop that drove the country mad. RTÉ have since apologised, saying:
Apologies for the disruption for some viewers to @RTÉ One tonight during #rtept . This was due to a technical transmission problem

Of course, Twitter went into meltdown, but at least some people saw the humour in it.
