The article is posted at The Saker's Blog, which we, sadly, will not have soon. I understand Andrei's position being a guest of the United States and difficulties he may experience with expressing his honest opinions on the state of the affair inside the US. In the end, people must take care of themselves and their families first, and Andrei's decision, however difficult, is fully justified, especially against the background of the unfolding existential struggle between shrinking, in every sense of the word, combined West and the rest of the world. But that relates directly to Pepe's piece in which he nails down the "mood" of the deep state and it is panic.
I deliberately do not introduce a snippet here in order to not misrepresent the main thrust of Pepe's excellent piece, so read it in full. It also preserves this piece's thunder with excellent conclusion.
Allegations that Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened then-UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson with a missile strike are “a lie,” Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Monday. Johnson’s accusations have emerged in a new BBC documentary about the crisis in Ukraine. Recalling a telephone call with Putin on February 2, 2022, just over three weeks before tensions over Ukraine escalated into full military action, Johnson claimed the Russian leader “threatened me at one point.” “He said, ‘Boris, I don’t want to hurt you but, with a missile, it would only take a minute’ or something like that… jolly,” the former PM told the British broadcaster. “There were no missile threats,” Peskov told reporters on Monday. “When he explained challenges to the security of the Russian Federation, President Putin remarked that if Ukraine joins NATO, the potential deployment of NATO or American missiles at our borders would mean that any missile could reach Moscow in mere minutes.”
Modern British "elites" are nothing more than a tawdry tabloid trash with no class, no ethics and no morals. BoJo is a perfect representation of a complete degeneracy in London. Lying is an official Bachelor of Arts program in elite UK universities, who "prepare" British "elite". People deserve government they elect. Simple as that.
