"Russia is quite enraged with him (Boris Johnson - Channel 24). That is why we were aware of all the threats and risks." - Podoliak added.

Podoliak also stated that, in his opinion, Russia has a very negative stance toward several leaders. In particular, they are:

  • Volodymyr Zelensky, ranking first;

  • Boris Johnson comes second in terms of Russia's hatred for him;

  • Polish President Andrzej Duda is in third place.

"Russians, I think, have a ranking of presidents and prime ministers of other nations with whom they have a special antipathy," Podoliak said.
