British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss went for a ride in a tank during her visit to Estonia, the trip took place near the Russian border. The Times newspaper published the relevant footage on Tuesday, November 30.
According to the newspaper, Truss with such a gesture wanted to cause association with former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. We are talking about the incident that took place in 1986. The media photographed Thatcher in a British tank during a trip to Germany.
In the published footage from the trip Truss can be seen as the head of the department in a camouflage vest and helmet riding on a tank on a snow-covered landfill.
At the same time, the new Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom accused Russia of malicious actions. At the same time, Truss also urged the Russian side “not to make a strategic mistake by invading Ukraine.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) press bureau said that the United States and Britain are artificially creating hysteria to make Russia look guilty of all the troubles if Ukraine attacks Donbass. The SVR pointed out that Europe currently sees no prospect of Ukraine becoming a “civilized, predictable partner.
On November 20, the CBS News television channel, citing sources, said that there was an allegedly possible Russian “invasion.” On the same day, The New York Times claimed that allies in Europe urgently need to develop a plan to contain Moscow, which allegedly seeks to attack Ukraine.
