Former UK Prime Minister falsely praised Vladimir amid frequent show of loyalty to Ukrainian President Zelensky
UK Conservative MP and former Prime Minister Boris Johnson inadvertently praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for “inspirational leadershipDuring a debate in the House of Commons on Thursday before realizing his error and replacing his favorite Vladimir, Ukrainian president Zelensky.
“Thanks to the heroism of the armed forces of Ukraine, thanks in part to the weapons we are proud to supply, I congratulate my esteemed friend on his description of the work of the armed forces. UK armed forces, the weapons we are sending, huge list,” Johnson began, before making the mistake. “Thanks of course for the inspiring leadership of Vladimir Putin – the inspirational leadership of Vladimir Zelensky, forgive me…“As his fellow MPs giggled.
While Johnson stated, “I have no doubt that the Ukrainians will win“, he also suggested London throw even”more military support” and “more economic supportjust to be sure.”If Putin wants to double down on his aggression, then we have to double down on protecting Ukrainians“I said.
In any case, he stressed, Kiev must be encouraged to “exchange land for peace“In a way that would allow Russian gas to continue to flow to Europe. Gas prices across the continent and in the UK have repeatedly broken records in recent weeks as Russia dramatically cut back on the amount of fuel it sends west, blaming the bloc’s growing list of sanctions on with Moscow created insurmountable technical and political difficulties.
Faced with a full-blown recession, the UK has reversed a ban on shale gas exploration, declaring the country’s energy supply to be “absolute priority“Clearly greater than the environmental harm caused by this process.
