What must be pretty much the last thing you want if you’re Theresa May? You’ve just announced a snap General Election, you’ve got literally a million things to do. And, there it is – a pre-arranged visit by Ukraine’s often inebriated, always crazy, president, Poroshenko. And you just know he’s not going to say ‘Theresa, you must be up to your neck at the moment another time?’ Petr’s got his invite, he’s coming!
What to expect? Will it be waving Russian passports around, waving bits of a bus around? Accusing Putin of killing the pharaoh (Poroshenko recently claimed Putin used the London terrorist attacks of March 22nd to murder someone on the sly in Kiev, no less).
Well, let’s see. Poroshenko arrives into London tomorrow.
Theresa May has just called a snap election for June 8th, of this year.
As you know, I love reporting from the UK, however I’m committed to working in Serbia for now, then Donbass, and Crimea, in this time, and I will fulfill those commitments.
In the past, I’ve supported – and openly – certain politics, or political parties in the UK, for example, I voted UKIP at the 2015 General Election, and was more than open about that, as I believed that we needed a referendum on EU membership.
Before that, I’d generally inclined towards the Conservative Party. However, the actions of the Conservative Party in respect of Donbass, and not only, mean that I cannot, and do not support them now.
I support the best possible government for the UK, which will deliver, for the country I love, good relationships with Europe, Russia, and the world, and make Great Britain a country which does good in the world.
