'It's a lie': Kremlin denies Putin threatened Boris Johnson with missile

  • Published on Jan 29, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • The Kremlin has said the former UK prime minister Boris Johnson was lying when he said the Russian president threatened him with a missile strike during a phone call in the run-up to what Moscow calls its 'special military operation' in Ukraine.

    Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters that what Johnson said was not true, or 'more precisely, a lie'. Peskov also said the west’s supplying of further weapons to Ukraine would only lead to 'significant escalation' of the conflict.

    Putin once said informally to Merkel that Russia could take Paris in two weeks. (IE Two weeks this is the time it takes for the Russian tanks to drive over Europe non stop to Paris) It is an cold war guestimated based on the 1962 tank armada. Tried in post Soviet politics
