– Oh, that awkward moment: Ukrainian PM greets Swiss president with Danish flag (RT, April 14, 2014):
An official visit of Switzerland’s president to Ukraine has kicked off with a diplomatic blunder as the country’s coup-imposed authorities greeted him with Danish flag instead of the Swiss.
It was Swiss president, Didier Burkhalter, who pointed the mistake out to prime minister, Arseny Yatsenyuk, during their meeting on Monday.
However, Burkhalter was kind enough to treat the incident as a joke, the Swiss media reports.
