Foreign Minister Lavrov has taken part in the ‘Territory of Meanings’ Youth Forum, held in Moscow on August 11th. He held a 2 hour Q&A session, answering questions from the young participants on a variety of subjects. The particular word the young man used was “облажаться” which has no precise translation in English. It is a concoction of ‘screw up, f*ck up, embarrass oneself’ or all three. The essence of Lavrov’s «swearing on your mom» joke is that is a figure of speech used often by Caucasians, and based on the young man’s accent – he is from the Caucasus.
