Overload ButtonTo ease the tension between the two countries, the new US administration proposed Russia to "reset" the bilateral relationships. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave her Russian counterpart a "reset" button with an ironic misspelling however. Instead of the Russian word for "reset" (perezagruzka) it featured a slightly different word meaning "overload" or "overcharged" (peregruzka).
