Liz Truss said that the UK’s ‘Baltic allies’ were located on the Black Sea, despite them being over 1,000km apart. British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has been slammed by Russia’s Foreign Ministry after a geography error confusing two different bodies of water in Europe, over 1,000km away from each other.
In an interview with the BBC, Truss explained that London is ’supplying and offering additional support into our Baltic allies across the Black Sea.’ PROBLEM Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are located nowhere near the southeast European body of water which is 1,000km from the Black Sea bordering Central Asia.
‘Mrs. Truss, your knowledge of history is nothing compared to your knowledge of geography,’ Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova wrote on her Telegram channel. ‘To ‘defend the Baltics,’ you don’t go through the Black Sea, but through the Baltic Sea. The Baltic states are so called because they are located on the shores of this sea. And not the Black Sea,’ she continued.
According to Zakharova, Truss’ uselessness at school book geography is evidence that the world needs to be saved from the stupidity and uneducated Anglo-Saxon politicians.’ noting that the head of the Foreign Office probably should know a thing or two about where countries are added Maria Zakharova.
Scorn and criticism of Truss follows an accusation by Dmitry Polyansky, Russia’s deputy ambassador at the United Nations, that the British government is untrustworthy.
‘I think, in recent years, British diplomacy has shown that it is absolutely worthless,’ Polyansky said. ‘I really don’t want to offend anybody, especially my good friends, British diplomats, but really, the results are nothing to boast about.’
In an article published by Moscow daily Kommersant on Thursday, two Russian diplomatic sources claimed that British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss made a complete fool of herself while speaking with her Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov.
According to the outlet, London’s top diplomat stressed that Moscow must withdraw its armed forces from the frontier with Ukraine. Sergey Lavrov reminded her that the Russian military is stationed in its own territory and has the right to conduct manoeuvres within its borders.
The veteran Russian official turned to Truss and asked whether London recognizes Moscow’s sovereignty over the regions of Rostov and Voronezh, where large troop movements are said to have taken place in recent days, close to the Ukrainian border.
After a moment’s contemplation, the gormless British diplomat replied that the UK ‘will never recognize Russia’s sovereignty over these regions.’
Deborah Bronnert, the UK’s ambassador to Moscow, dived in and quietly reminded her colleague that Rostov and Voronezh are actually considered Russian territory even by her own government.
Frankly: NATO troops who offer up their limbs and lives for such idiots richly deserve being removed from the genetic strain. You can share this story on social media.
