Ukraine: Johnson mocks Putin in Davos, doesn’t want to wage nuclear war ANSA

(ANSA) — LONDON, JANUARY 20 — Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is convinced that under no circumstances does Russia intend to unleash a “nuclear war” over Ukraine, even in the face of an escalation in wartime aid from NATO countries to Kyiv. And he said so today in a mocking tone to President Vladimir Putin, speaking at an ad hoc session on the war on the sidelines of the Davos Economic Forum.

BoJo branded the Tsar as a reincarnation of Fat Joe, the languid “fat boy” of Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers who believes “he gives us goosebumps with unreliable threats.” He then reiterated that the allies should not hesitate to follow the example of the UK and increase military supplies to Kyiv.

Johnson, who was present at Davos in contrast to current Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who succeeded him after Liz Truss’ short-lived tenure at the head of the Tory government, was also noted for his role as Ukraine’s “privileged friend” among Western leaders Today’s event invited President Voldymyr Zelensky during his tenure at Downing Street. And he was introduced as a character who “became legendary among Ukrainians” (as divisive as he may be among his British compatriots). (HAND).
