It is reported on the English speaking Russian service, RT that the Russians want to know if Boris Johnson is a Russian spy! (am laughing uncontrollably). After MI5 chief Andrew Parker accused Moscow of using underhanded tactics to destabilize Britain, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Zakharova hit back, asking if he also sees “the hand of the Kremlin in the appointment of Boris Johnson as head of the Foreign Office?” This is likely to be just a dry Russian joke, in response to Mr. Parker’s earlier comment. It is funny, and we don’t take it seriously.
They might know that Boris does speak some Russian. And his name, after all, is Boris. What they can’t possibly know is that his great great grandfather was Russian! And he admires and appreciates Russian literature. Boris always sees the good, the talent, the hope and the opportunity for a better world in every situation.
