In Davos the former Boris Johnson made an appearance to speak about the ongoing Ukraine-Russia conflict.
He appeared on a panel with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy joining via video link.
Johnson said Vladimir Putin wants to present it as a nuclear standoff between Nato and Russia, but the west should call his bluff. “Nonsense,” he said. “He’s not going to use nuclear weapons.
“People argue that we should not escalate and should be wary of doing things that further provoke Putin,” he said. “How can we escalate against a guy who is doing all-out war against a civilian population?”
Away from that Sky’s Ed Conway tweeted the video and wrote: “We heard @borisjohnson was here in Davos for a private event. So we tracked him down to ask him what he was up to. He took off. We chased him. Here’s what happened next:”
