An “imposter” posing as Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denýs Shmhal managed to hold a video conference call with UK Defense Minister Ben Wallace on Thursday. Priti Patel (head of the Interior) was also hurt this week.
Wallace reported via Twitter this Thursday that he first began to speak with the false head government. However, he was subsequently questioned by his superiors. “several tricky questions”.
Wallace stated that there was no Russian disinformation, distortions, or dirty tricks that could distract attention from Russia’s human rights abuses, illegal invasion of Ukraine, and called it a “desperate effort.”
Patel responded to the message of the Defense Minister by revealing that she had also been the victim to a similar call. “This same incident happened to me this week. A pathetic attempt to divide and conquer us in these difficult times,” wrote the Interior Minister.
According to this source, the impostor who had a Ukrainian flag in his back raised doubts among the British ministers when he started to ask “crazy” questions.
“Have we sent you the substance?” Wallace, the false Ukrainian prime minister, was present in Poland at that time and was asked if he knew what he was talking about.
The person who called the minister also mentioned names of people Wallace didn’t know, according to the Defense Ministry source. EFE
