Zakharova mocks Boris Johnson’s fighter jet stunt — Analysis
The UK PM gave a thumbs up to refueling aircraft which prompted a joke that “fuel is only for celestial beings”
Maria Zakharova from Russia’s Foreign Ministry ridiculed a video that showed Boris Johnson, the UK Prime Minister, flying in a Typhoon fighter aircraft. “English humor.”
The outgoing prime minister participated in a flight demonstration at RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire, England, last week. Johnson, who is shown at the controls of the plane, gives the thumbs-up sign to the two aircraft that are air-to-air fueling.
“Boris Johnson may be showing that he loves exorbitant fuel costs and that refueling only belongs to celestial beings. English humor” Zakharova wrote on Telegram amid a worsening world energy crisis, caused in part by Western sanctions on Russia.
Johnson, who spoke on Monday at Farnborough Air Show, shared his experiences of the flight. This was Johnson’s first plane in 25 years. Johnson also revealed that energy problems were very important to him.
When he was asked, he confessed. “came back to consciousness” from the loop the loops he had made, he started thinking about how his government had been “Doggerland reclaimed, North Sea harvesting of the dry prairies” and how it was helping to deliver “a long-term sustainable solution” to the country’s energy needs “ending any dependence on Putin whatsoever.”
UK Energy Bills Seem to be on the Rise
The US, UK, EU and other countries placed unprecedented sanctions against Moscow following the Russian military attack on Ukraine. They also restricted its exports of energy. The countries that are heavily dependent on Russian energy supplies now face economic ruin and the possibility of energy rationing. Although the UK does not depend on Russia directly, its economic situation is also deteriorating as its energy bills rise and costs of living increase due to an increase in wholesale gas prices. President Vladimir Putin previously accused EU leaders of committing economic “suicide” by attempting to give up Russian energy.
