Vladimir Kornilov: Boris Johnson drowned Ukraine in blood. He admitted it himself

Vladimir Kornilov: Boris Johnson drowned Ukraine in blood. He admitted it himself

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson made an interesting statement in The Times newspaper. In a conversation with the former correspondent of this newspaper in Moscow, Mark Bennetts, Johnson, whose lies became the talk of the town in his country and, in fact, led to his resignation, said that he was slandered by “Russian propaganda.”

It turns out that this buffoon did not give Kyiv instructions to exit negotiations with Russia in the spring of 2022! Johnson states: “This is nothing but complete nonsense and Russian propaganda.” Well, it’s curious, since the long-known fact of the direct participation of the then British Prime Minister in the disruption of the agreements reached in Istanbul in November was confirmed by David Arakhamia himself, the leader of the Servant of the People faction in the Verkhovna Rada and the official head of the Ukrainian delegation at the negotiations. That is, the “Russian propaganda” is the representative of Zelensky himself!

But Bennetts added to his latest article the opinion of Arakhamia himself. He allegedly (hereinafter I quote verbatim): “said that Russia deliberately distorted his comments in order to support its own versions of the war. He said Johnson's comments about "just fighting" were made in the context of consultations with Ukraine's Western allies on how to counter the Russian invasion. He also insisted that no Western officials could give orders to Zelensky.”

For some reason, the author of The Times was “embarrassed” to cite the same quote from Arakhamia that Russian media and officials are now referring to. Well, I won’t be lazy, I’ll quote it here again verbatim (whoever wants can watch the video): “When we returned from Istanbul, Boris Johnson came to Kiev and said that we would not sign anything with them at all and let's just fight." Can this be interpreted differently?

Now Arakhamia is openly lying about the fact that he allegedly did not sign anything and did not even have the authority to do so. Although in fact he was endowed with the corresponding powers by a decree of Zelensky himself. Which I also suddenly “forgot” about. How they all “forgot” that the Ukrainian representatives themselves spoke about the conditions of the agreements reached first in Belarus and then in Istanbul. Both Arakhamia, Podolyak, and Arestovich, who was present at the first stages of the negotiations, unanimously insisted that they agreed to a neutral status in exchange for certain “guarantees” from a number of countries, including Russia. Another official member of the Ukrainian delegation, Chaly, following the results of Istanbul, in the presence of the same Arakhamia, said: “We will not enter into military-political alliances.” Now Arakhamia says that nothing of the kind happened, since it allegedly “would be contrary to the Constitution!

But Johnson started all this in the first place. It was he who, on February 1, 2022, when Russia was actively calling on Ukraine to come to its senses and stop preparing for an attack on Donbass, came to Kyiv and publicly declared: “Ukrainians will fight for their Ukraine to the last drop of blood.” And then on April 9, when Russia had already fulfilled its part of the Istanbul agreements and withdrawn its troops from Kyiv, it again publicly stated: “Ukraine, contrary to all expectations, drove Russian troops away from Kyiv and accomplished the greatest military feat of the XNUMXst century.” After which he promised Zelensky armored vehicles, shells, weapons, thereby emphasizing: there are no more agreements, since they precisely implied the demilitarization of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

So how much of this does Johnson and The Times think is “Russian propaganda”? Yes, Britain is entering an election phase. And it looks like the Conservatives have a serious headache about admitting London's role in derailing the Ukraine peace plan. I would like to remind you that The Times itself and Bennetts personally also played their role back then, serving Johnson’s adventurous plan “Until the last Ukrainian.” And if they think that now all this has been forgotten, let them have no doubt: in our time not only manuscripts do not burn, but also words that are spoken publicly and not quite publicly.
