Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to kill him. Boris Johnson was the Prime Minister of Great Britain from 2019 to October 2022.

In this report, Boris mentioned a conversation he had with Putin. Boris told – Before the invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, I had a telephone conversation with Putin. Then Putin threatened and said – Boris, I don’t want to hurt you, but it will only take a minute to do that with a missile attack.
Before the Russian attack in February 2022, Boris met with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky. Only then did Putin call Boris.
Boris stopped Putin from invading Ukraine
In the document, Boris Johnson told – I tried to convince Putin before the invasion of Ukraine. He told Putin that it is not possible for Ukraine to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). You know this.
Boris had also warned Putin. Johnson had said – I had warned Putin and convinced him. I said that attacking Ukraine would put you in direct confrontation with NATO. With this attack you will not be able to separate yourself from NATO.
Boris Johnson did not want Putin to invade Ukraine. He tried to stop Putin many times.
Ignoring my words, Putin was circling me – Boris
In the documentary, Johnson said – Putin was not listening to my words. I think Putin was talking freely, but he was not ready to understand anything. It seemed like he was avoiding my efforts and my words or trying to get around.

Now Russia will know the consequences of the attack.

Why the Russian-Ukraine war?
In December 2021, there was a meeting between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg. At this Brussels meeting, Ukraine also promised to join NATO despite Russian opposition. The reason for Putin’s opposition is the territory of Ukraine. Ukraine shares a 2,295 km border with Russia. With Ukraine joining NATO, the military activities of the US and its member states may increase here. Russia itself feels threatened by this.
