Johnson called out Putin on Twitter, and the Russian Embassy in Beijing responded with two tweets: “Ridiculous!British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also mentioned Russian President Vladimir Putin in a post on his Weibo account @Pm in Chinese on Thursday.The Weibo account of the Russian Embassy in China just retweeted Johnson’s post and responded with two posts in a row.”Another example of the west’s information war against Russia is the absurdity of downing Street’s statement, which aims to further stoke the hysteria it has manipulated over the alleged ‘imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine’,” the first post from the Russian Embassy in Beijing said.Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, described such Western propaganda as’ information terrorism ‘.”In a second post, the Russian Embassy said: “The Russian Federation is not conducting any major military activities and its troops are stationed on its territory and pose no threat to anyone.If the West is truly committed to reducing the military danger, it should be concerned about the actions of Ukraine and its patrons, because they are the ones who have created it.”The fact that NATO countries continue their military development on Ukrainian territory by supplying Ukraine with large quantities of weapons is an example of escalating the situation.””We are on the edge of a precipice, but there is still time for President Putin to step back and think,” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote in Chinese on his Weibo account @Prime Minister on Thursday afternoon.We urge everyone to engage in dialogue — the Russian government should avoid decisions that would be disastrously wrong for the country.”During the recent period of ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine, The UK has stood out in particular.On January 23, western media outlets put a British Foreign Office “latest intelligence” report on Russia’s “invasion of Ukraine” on the top of their websites.”There is evidence that Russia is trying to install a Pro-Russian leader in Kiev following its invasion of Ukraine,” the statement declared.This was later contradicted by Russia, whose foreign ministry said: “The disinformation spread by the British Foreign Office is yet another evidence that it is NATO, led by the Anglo-Saxons, that is escalating tensions in Ukraine.”Britain is also one of the few Western countries to send troops and weapons to Ukraine.Britain has supplied Ukraine with thousands of new anti-tank missiles and has sent 30 troops to the country to train its armed forces to use them, according to the British Ministry of Defense website.Britain’s defence secretary, Ben Wallace, has compared diplomatic efforts by some Western countries to ease tensions with the “appeasement” they adopted in the run-up to the second world war, declaring that “Munich is in the air”.Agence France-Presse commented that the British defence secretary was suggesting that some Western countries were not being tough enough on Russia.Some Russian media analysis believes that Britain is so radical, in addition to the long-term conflict with Russia, and Johnson himself factors — for the recent uproar of the “party door” scandal to escape.Last week, during a visit to Poland, The Russian news agency Sputnik said Johnson unexpectedly flew to Warsaw with hundreds of British soldiers, and the British prime minister publicly took Churchill as an example.When Mr Johnson was fighting to avoid being ousted by his own party colleagues over the “party gate” scandal, he made surprise visits to eastern Europe in an attempt to appear as a noble defender against what he called “Russian aggression”.Source: Huanqiu/Zhang Jiangping
