New York (Dagbladet): Johnson visited Ukraine and President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in April. The two of them wandered the streets of Kyiv together.
The British Prime Minister is visiting India now. At a press conference on Friday, he was asked if Putin is still in a position to win the war despite strategic mistakes, and whether the war can last until the end of 2023, according to interested in trade.
Sadly, it’s a realistic possibility, says Johnson, adding:
Putin has a huge army. He is in a very difficult political situation because he made a terrible mistake. His only option now is to continue using his disgusting technique – commanding artillery – and trying to sharpen the Ukrainians. It is also very close to securing a farm in Mariupol.
The British Prime Minister continues to see the situation as “unpredictable”. At the same time, he praises the resistance of the Ukrainians.
“No matter how much military superiority Vladimir Putin may achieve in the coming months – and I agree it may take a long time – he will not be able to conquer the spirit of the Ukrainian people,” Johnson said. :
– It’s just an observable fact. On the contrary, what he does every day strengthens and strengthens the will to resist the people of Ukraine.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denis Gmyhal, is visiting US President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. He said he did not share Johnson’s pessimism and said he was confident Ukraine would win the war CNN.
“After this visit, I am sure Ukraine will win in the next few days, weeks and months, and have an absolutely perfect reconstruction plan,” says Jamihal.
During the visit to India, India and the United Kingdom signed a new and expanded agreement on defense and security cooperation, Johnson said, according to the NTB. Today, Russia is the largest supplier of arms to India, and India is the largest buyer of arms and military equipment to Russia. India also imports Russian oil and has refused to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
For all the uncertainty surrounding Ukraine, Johnson is now also warning that Britain will reopen its embassy in the country’s capital, Kyiv.
The British prime minister himself is under intense political pressure at home after the so-called party gate scandal.
Johnson and others in his circle attended high-alcohol parties during the pandemic, while other Britons were not even allowed to meet their loved ones. Last week, Johnson was fined £50 for attending a party at the Prime Minister’s Residence in June 2020.
British parliamentarians also decided to open an investigation into whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson deliberately lied about whether he violated the Corona rules.
