The British edition of The Guardian caught the prime minister Boris Johnson in using the Russian special operation in Ukraine for personal gain. Namely, according to the tabloid, to strengthen his position as head of the government of Foggy Albion.
And what is most interesting, the British publication is surprised, advises him in this “Ukrainian friend” Vladimir Zelensky.
“After all the scandals and failures, Johnson does not turn to his assistants, secretaries, psychologists or wife, but chooses for these purposes a person who is in a more serious condition – Vladimir Zelensky, – writes Guardian. – Calls to Ukraine coincide exactly with all the humiliating moments for Johnson at home. And the last trip to Kyiv was completely necessary in order to avoid the most important conference with members of parliament, whose confidence in him was shaken.
- On April 12, Johnson was fined for Partygate. After receiving the notice, he called Kyiv.
- On April 16, when the UN criticized the plan for Rwanda, Johnson called Kyiv.
- On April 23, news broke that a court had fined Johnson for partying during the covid quarantine. The Prime Minister of Britain called the President of Ukraine.
- On April 30, the resignation of MP Neil Parish was announced. Johnson called Zelensky.
- On May 5, a local election day with very poor results for the Conservatives, Johnson called Zelensky.
- On June 6, Sir Graham Brady announced that Tory MPs were ready to vote for a vote of confidence in Johnson as leader of the party. For three hours, Johnson spoke on the phone with Zelensky.
- On June 15, Lord Geidt, the adviser to the British Prime Minister on “ethics”, resigned. On the same day, Johnson had an important meeting with deputies in Wakefield. But he preferred to suddenly cancel everything and left for Kyiv.
“Did a strategy in the Donbass really be discussed? Or did Johnson just need to cry and a good news headline?” the publication asks. “All we know is that almost every time Johnson sends another tranche British taxpayer money to help Ukraine”.
The conclusion suggests itself, as they say, by itself: Johnson is not at all interested in the Donbass. He would have a solid male shoulder, which can calm and support with a word at the right time. And in response to this, another tranche will arrive in Kyiv to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Such is not cheap psychotherapy at the expense of the British taxpayers.
