He also describes his conversation with Putin regarding Nato and Ukraine's plans to join the alliance. During his tenure as prime minister, and since leaving office, Johnson has remained one of the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s biggest supporters, visiting Kyiv since his resignation.

Putin threatened Boris Johnson with a comb 😂
it would only take a minute johny - with this comb. i will do it for you.😂
😂😂😂 boris sees combs as missiles 😂
His interview is as convincing as the other one where he mentioned his hobby was making bus models out of wooden boxes.
That the problem, even if he's telling the truth it's hard to believe because of his track record. 🤷♂
@Nige it's nonsense because if russia launched missiles it would've been on the radars and whatnot. Everybody would know about it. So that couldn't ever happen as a result. Which is why threatening is pointless and only harms your character. The most plausible thing is assassination threat because russia has been doing this forever and very successful at that might I mention.
@The Increment Easy to believe of course. But what kind of person (Johnson) couldn't remember the conversation with Putin?!
Putin : *chest congestion*
Boris Johnson : Putin threatened me.
Noticed that whilst most media news have uploaded this "story" BBC have not. To be frank I am embarrassed on behalf of the BBC.
Because Boris is liar and corrupt
I believe Putin on this. Who would believe anything Bojo said?
"The relaxation in his voice....." That's how you know that the man has been and plans to stay in power for a long time.
Oh Boris said that, did he? Well, that clinches it for sure.
The jolliness in him
UK economy to do ‘worse than Russia’, warns IMF on Brexit anniversary
He is so excited and animated about this war, like a kid who can't wait for the Fireworks Festivals to begin 💥💥💥
Yeah , I would like to see the transcript of that conversation and then to hear it in full
No doubt it was recorded
Thanks for botching and sabotaging the negotiations
Boris lies about everything 😂😮
Well, Boris Johnson never lies.
" I promise no lie " ~ Doris bonson
Oh wow, plot like for next Bond movie. Thanks Doris.
A. I wouldn't trust Boris if he told me the sky was blue
B. This is news? Saying Putin threatened to use Missiles is like saying a Chef made a sandwich
If he hadn't been kicked out for lying maybe he'd be believable
Still the best PM
@The Increment The same Boris Johnson who was quoted as saying "Let the bodies pile high" during the hight of the pandemic.
@The Increment Putin never made any nuclear threats in the first place. How about actually listening to Putins interview.
@Jon This is true.
Boris is as handsome as ever. During the conversation with Putin, three people were sitting in his office. And they listened attentively. The text of the conversation was specially chosen ambiguous. So that in English it sounds like a threat, and in Russian it sounds like a misunderstanding. By the way, the Kremlin is very afraid of strong politicians ...))))))
If i was boris i would of just said... "i can do the same to you"
Дровосек из волшебника изумрудного города🤣
Может быть про больного диктатора что-то лучше напишешь или зассал уехать надолго?
Is there anyone out there who believes a word Boris says about any issue?
@Les you've mis-spelt cultists. Sometimes called tories
Unfortunately there are still some cultists who do. It's incredible.
Ah yes, someone with those phones has a type of missile that can hit the UK in a minute
Even if putin ends us brits. I would respect that. If a French or a German was going to do this I would be mortified.
Boris johnson can't tell the truth to save his dying mother he won't know where to start
Moscow said Boris is lying, so dear Brits releas the telephone talk and time and we will see who is lying or if something is altered.
Boris Johnson, a gentleman, and also a diplomat: so discreet, indeed?
And the reason there is no transcript of this is....?
Well Boris will not publish it for sure.
At least unedited.
@The Increment send link if there is
Boris not really known for telling the truth, but if true it's the best news Britain has had in ages. If only he could have pressed him for some more details, like When? We could have all get some beers and popcorn in to watch that one.
And Iraq had WMDs...
Boris johnson needs putting in a straight jacket. He's clearly mad.
Until you have been dehumanized because you exist, you may not understand the burden of
44 mins faster than a sadam hussein missiles
ha ha, totally
That's why nobody wants to be involved in direct fight with Russia. I think Boris is still in shock. Boris so afraid.
The toad lives in fantasy land😵💫
Yes Boris takes everything as a joke. But a man who is dying of cancer may not see the funny side. Let's face it if I am going to die I will take everybody with me.
Boris still trying to be relevant 😂
Kremlin in Feb: we would never invade Ukraine.
@Bocão hey there I didn't know Clip-Share was not banned in Russia.
@omop you’re right. zelenski’s actions resulted in a lot of trouble for ukrainians. hope ppl there hold him accountable.
The News trying to be relevant, this has been done before but with a Nuke threat...now missiles...pfft
@Osteo Striga if he is no position of power don't discuss him
He should’ve asked Lebedev (junior or senior) while he was drinking their booze
If the Russian Missiles are as effective has the Russian army, I don’t think we have much to worry about.
Hmmmmmm shame he didn,t during a lockdown party.
Can't believe I paid for Boris's 800k wonga loan through watchin EastEnders
Why is Boris so obsessed with Putin? Last summer he was bubbling about if Putin was a woman he wouldn’t have invaded 🙈
I'd have told Vlad I'd have him unalived.
And Doris has never lied once in his life ! 😀
moester75 no, children may be reading these comments but people use many words to describe this animal
@moester75 He gets called far worse but Doris is the polite one 🤣
@moester75 Not enough ! 😀
@moester75 That and Bunter as well as other ruder names.
Honest Boris doing the rounds again?
Yea. And Boris fought several lions before hobbling an attacking rhinoceros. All before lunch.
Then he ate ALL the pies.
Expecting the truth from boris johnson is like buying a ticket to go to heaven don't hold your breath
A comic actor like Zelensky..Boris and Zelensky..ahahah
Well I'm sure Boris can buy safety shelter with 800,000
Someone tell him his 15 minutes of fame was over, like, 2 series ago.
No wonder he doesn’t wanna hurt boris with all the money the tories took from Russia
The information published on the U.K. government website is as follows :
PM call with President Putin of Russia: 2 February 2022
The Prime Minister spoke to Russian President Putin this afternoon.
The Prime Minister expressed his deep concern about Russia’s current hostile activity on the Ukrainian border. He emphasised the need to find a way forward which respects both Ukraine’s territorial integrity and right to self-defence. The Prime Minister stressed that any further Russian incursion into Ukrainian territory would be a tragic miscalculation.
The Prime Minister underscored that, under NATO’s open door policy, all European democracies have a right to aspire to NATO membership. This right fully applies to Ukraine. He also reiterated that NATO is a defensive alliance.
The leaders agreed that aggravation was in no one’s interest. The Prime Minister stressed the importance of dialogue and diplomacy, and the need to include Ukraine in talks.
The Prime Minister and President Putin welcomed communication between the UK and Russia on a number of important issues including climate change, the situation in Afghanistan and the Iran nuclear deal. They agreed to apply this spirit of dialogue to the current tensions in order to find a peaceful resolution.
Or words something like that , I smell a fibber ! You remember word for word what he said if he threatened you
Pub talk. Boris couldn't bear being out of the picture, and he is desperate to insert himself back in. Well, not before Putin could do that to him...right between his...
This man could not lie to save his life, nobody believes you Boris
What I want to know is what the BBC director has done to allow 800K to be put in the hands of Boris. That's the real story here.
That's why he's making up this garbage. Get some money from tv appearances, because he's got no job now, and that loan needs to be payed off.
@The Increment look mate i'm having curry. Let me digest and then we will speak about incrementing your common sense
The trouble with boris is that no one believes a word he says anymore. It probably never even happened.
All 3 I should say if you include Boris...
@chitti well you definitely can't believe anything out of Putin, as Zelensky said he is a nobody because everything he says means nothing
i think you are right.
🤣😂😂😂😂Lies . Lies . Only lies 🤡
It appears rightly or wrongly that Putin felt immensely threatened by NATO and I imagine the advancement of the EU towards the East. It's seems if Zelensky could negiotate with Putin for the sake of peace and make Ukraine a neutral country maybe there could be a reduction in conflict in that region.
They are trying to start a war
Ah… Boris will always be remembered for his eager action of the threat to use WOMD… The Dodgy Dosser Affair they will call it.
Lol. Who could blame Putin for not believing a word out of Johnson's mouth.
We Brits have all learned not to!!
If you're Brittish, then I'm Taiwanese.
@Martin McKenna I wish you were not probably right 😬
really? the lunatics in this country would have the thing back in power tomorrow!!
@elyrexo I go with neither. At least until I get some evidence that is actually reliable.
Which liar to believe? It's a true dilemma.
Most likely a _Kompromat_ scud missile...
0:30 anyone else notice how Boris thought about doing the Russian accent and then quickly stopped it hahaha
Please make the call record public. I bet you that would be fun. I'm sure that Putin would not say that, as it is not Russian style. Do it t. Peskov!
Expecting Boris to tell the truth is like ...
...waiting for a brexit bonus.
Is like waiting for santa claus to come down the chimney 🤣🤣
Interesting how he gets on BBC…
As if Putin was playing along with Boris’ attempts at negotiating.
The same Boris we know flew to Ukraine at the end of April to tell Zelensky to stop negotiations.
@David Shepherd david he not even our pm
@David Shepherd and the truth will out
ENGLISH LAPDOG DOES AS ENGLISH LAPDOG DOES FOR UNCLE SAM!!!
Boris johnson only speak truth nothing else. Well done Mr Johnson.
Hehe.. you got me though..
You're being ironic, surely ? 😂
No NATO = NO WAR!!
Yeah but you didnt take him seriously in the way that you do mind games with him "any time soon" is not the expected answer. the answer should be never will join.
Putin literally tried to scare us into submission🤣😂🤣😂 BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!
@Kibru G wrong again 😂😂😂
He is a careful and smart man with his words, if you noticed.
Boris vs Putin : The Battle of the Liars

@B k paid KGb agent Hi
@Harut Hajin troll
@Susan Ferrie when You will sleep call Me, I am ready
Putler said something similar to Merkel. Saying the Russian army could reach Paris in two weeks. Merkel thought it was a joke.
Who is Putler?
Boris The Party Guy
We cannot believe on him…..
Al least that will end peoples suffering.
I think he is lying. He has a reputation for that.
I guess all those recent holidays have frightened him into realising that he's increasingly irrelevant.
noted truth teller Boris Johnson 😂
Hard to believe that Putin would make a threat? Have you been in a coma for the last 20 years?
@The Increment You mean random somebody in the comments section, we all are, including you.
Yeah sure this happened.
He still can and he should
Hahaha he is a liar.🤣
It's true Russia got 5th generation nukes flying 18 speed of sound UK got 6 sentry weapons can't even reach Ireland 😅😅
He's a liar. We know it. He knows it.
Scarecrow 😂 shame of england…
That means the missile would be located one minute away … utter nonsense
How can it be Jolly Boris?
Has this guy ever seen a barbershop from the inside?
"or something like that"
I'm playing along with my attemp to cash in as a former prime minister. What do you want to hear?
Prison (+ Other Judgement) Time for you, Mr. B. Johnson. Together with... Well, it is a long list, beyond the British Government...
Let's hear the recording.
Boris Johnson is a security risk.
well I think the only guy who knew how to deal with Putin was Donald trump:/
