This Saturday, during a conference of the Conservative Party in Blackpool (UK), the British Prime Minister again caused controversy by comparing the situation in Brexit and Ukraine.
The comparison is at least bold. When the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson voted for Brexit, he compared the fate of the Ukrainian people to the fate of the British people and caused a scandal.
“Like the Ukrainians, I know it is the nature of the people in this country to choose freedom every time. I will give you a few examples. When the British people voted for Brexit, I did not think so. It was because they were hostile to foreigners that they were free to do things differently and this country They wanted to drive themselves. ” Boris Johnson said.
This is not the first time that the process of political recovery has fallen within the realm of indecency. So, in the face of this comparison, controversy quickly erupted, especially on Twitter. “Boris, your words offend Ukrainians, Britons and the general public.”Donald Tusk, the former chairman of the European Council, who he recalled, responded among others “Trump and Putin’s enthusiasm after the referendum” Brexit.
Boris Johnson likens the struggle of the Ukrainians to the British people voting for Brexit. I still remember the excitement of Putin and Trump after the referendum. Boris, your words offend Ukrainians, Englishmen and the general public.
