Boris Johnson has not been invited to Kyiv

Downing Street announced that despite reportedly being desperate to visit the warzone, Boris Johnson hasn’t been invited to visit war-ravaged Kyiv.

No 10 told reporters that the Prime Minister would consider travelling to the besieged metropolis, but no offer had been received from president Volodymyr Zelensky.

It came after Tory chairman Oliver Dowden insisted the Prime Minister had a genuine emotional bond with the suffering of the Ukrainian people and wanted to experience what it was like on the ground.

The comments, in an interview with LBC, came despite security fears over Boris Johnson’s obvious wish to visit Kyiv for face to face talks with Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman told reporters that they would clearly consider any invite should it be made, but there were no plans to travel there now, and it was said that the Prime Minister speaks to President Volodymyr Zelensky on an almost daily basis and that they were doing everything they could, and any requests that were made to continue playing a coordinating role, which they feel is essential to helping Ukraine.

He said President Volodymyr Zelensky hadn’t, at this time, requested the Prime Minister visit Kyiv.

The prime ministers of Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic made a trip to the Ukrainian capital last week.

Boris Johnson has been having almost daily calls with the president, which insiders told a newspaper outlet have often been moving and left Boris Johnson moist around the eyes.

The UN’s refugee agency said about 3.5 million people have fled Ukraine since the attack started, with millions more forced out of their homes staying in the country.

Mr Dowden, who serves in Cabinet, said that he believed the Prime Minister was desperate to go to Ukraine and has throughout the conflict felt a real, as the British people have done, connection with the suffering of the Ukrainian people and a need for the West to unite in standing up to this threat from Russia which has been exposed to Ukraine.

Pressed on why Boris Johnson needed to travel to the war zone rather than talking to Volodymyr Zelensky on the phone, Mr Dowden said that he believed that it was both to see what was going happening on the ground and that it was significantly different speaking to someone on the phone versus seeing it in practice, and that no decision had been taken in regard to this, and that it was to experience what was happening there and to see what was happening to the people on the ground.

Or perhaps Boris Johnson is just desperate to do some thumbs up in a jacket and helmet for a photo opportunity without any regard for the danger he will put other people in, and perhaps he shouldn’t be allowed near the place, and if he is permitted to go, all he will be doing is a rotund Frank Spencer show, giving the people of Kyiv a thumbs up, with his roaring Churchillian address.

Volodymyr Zelensky has enough to deal with, let alone having to worry about Boris Johnson getting in the way, and Boris should just continue with his phone calls instead, and let’s face it, who needs a useless sack of blubber, who’s desperate enough to attach himself to anyone’s wagon in a war zone? It’s not a circus Boris, it’s a war, and Boris Johnson needs to stick to his own playpen.

And I’m pretty sure we don’t need to see Boris Johnson act out his boyhood fantasies of wearing camouflage or doing the cringeworthy elbow bumps.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
