The Russian invasion of Ukraine continues. And Russia does not stop making critical statements. The Russian administration has welcomed the resignation of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who pursued a policy of full support for Kiev in the invasion of Ukraine. “He didn’t really like us, nor did We like him,” Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian leader Vladimir Putin, said of Johson. Peskov also stressed that he hopes that “more professional people who make decisions through dialogue” will take over things in London.
Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakarova also said that Johnson was “Decapitated by a boomerang coming out of his own hand” and he argued that the moral lesson to be taken from all that is happening is “don’t try to destroy Russia”. However, Ukraine has taken a different attitude. The presidency thanked Johnson for his “support during the most difficult periods”. Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelenskiy called Johson after announcing his resignation and expressed his sadness at the news, according to Ukrainian officials. And in Washington, President Joe Biden praised the strength and Decisiveness of the “special relationship” between the UK and the US. “I look forward to continuing our close cooperation with the UK government,” Biden added.
