Russian phrase of the year / Фраза года 2016

The phrase that attracted everyone's attention and went viral was Russian vice president's answer to a Crimean old lady who asked him "Why my pension money is so small?". And Medvedev said "There's no money, but hang in there" and then he continued "but I wish you all the luck, health and have a good mood".

In Russian: "Денег нет, но вы держитесь" ("вам всего доброго, хорошего настроения и здоровья»"). You can look it up in the news, for example here

Now when you want to express sarcasm you can say "There's no money, but hang in there" or even just "Hang in there" that creates a reference to mentioned above situation.
