News “Putin is threatened with a missile attack.” Last Minute UK, Russia headlines and events


Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin before the invasion of Ukraine that Putin had threatened him with a missile strike.

Speaking to the BBC, Johnson said that the Russian leader asked about the possibility of Ukraine joining NATO, and he replied that “this will not happen in the foreseeable future.”

Johnson said that during a “very long” phone call on February 2, 2022, he warned Putin that a war would be an “absolute disaster” while the Russian leader threatened him and said, “Boris, I don’t want to hurt you, but with a rocket, it only takes a minute.”

Rejection of the Kremlin

The Kremlin made a statement about Johnson’s words. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Johnson’s words are not true.

Relations between Moscow and London deteriorated after the 2018 poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, England, prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year.

Johnson, who resigned last September after a series of scandals, said that during his premiership, “London was Kyiv’s best ally in the West.” Visiting Kyiv several times during his tenure, Johnson also spoke frequently on the phone with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The former British prime minister traveled to Kyiv on January 22 and met with Zelensky again.
