“In jackets? No jackets? Let's undress? <…> We all have to show that we are cooler than [Russian President Vladimir] Putin,” — the prime minister joked as he sat down at the table. The remark was picked up by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and invited his colleagues to “demonstrate bare-chested riding.”
Later, Johnson gave an interview to German television and said that Putin would not have started the operation in Ukraine if he was a woman. The actions of the Russian president towards Ukraine can be called “the perfect example of toxic masculinity,” the British prime minister added.
In response, Putin reminded Johnson that former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1982 ordered military action against Argentina for control of Falkland Islands.
