  • Kremlin accused over hoax call to Boris Johnson as Russian prankster discusses Putin and Salisbury poisoning

    Golocal247.com news

    A prank call to Boris Johnson has triggered a diplomatic row after the Kremlin was accused of being behind the “desperate” stunt. The Foreign Secretary was caught out by a Russian prankster who kept him on the phone for 18 minutes by pretending to be the new Prime Minister of Armenia. Mr Johnson unwittingly discussed President Vladimir Putin and the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal before he rumbled the hoax and ended the call. The Foreign Office believes the pranksters, who have previously caught out other politicians, made the call with the blessing of the Kremlin to “save face” after it was shamed over the Salisbury attack. A recording of the phone call, which happened last week, was put online the day after Yulia Skripal made her first public statement about her poisoning, in which she said she had been the victim of an attempted assassination. It also came on the day that Dutch investigators revealed evidence that a Russian military missile shot down flight MH-17 over Ukraine in 2014. The pranksters had tried to contact the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson by email days earlier, posing as the Armenian defence minister, but alert Ministry of Defence officials did not fall for the trick. Alexei Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, who call themselves Lexus and Vovan, are the two men who made the call to Mr Johnson last week. Their previous victims include Sir Elton John, the Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the US Energy Secretary Rick Perry. They are understood to have convinced the Europe minister Sir Alan Duncan in a previous call that one of them was Nikol Pashinyan, the Armenian premier. It enabled them to get through to Mr Johnson’s private office in a second call. Speaking in English with a Russian accent, the caller asked Mr Johnson for advice on what he should say to Vladimir Putin when he met him, as well as discussing the Skripal case. Mr Johnson responded by saying that “we will continue to tighten the squeeze on some of the oligarchs who surround Putin”, adding: “You throw a stone in Kensington and you’ll hit an oligarch.” Nikol Pashinyan: the real Prime Minister of Armenia Credit: SERGEI GAPON /AFP He also said Britain was “almost 100 per cent sure” Russia was behind the Salisbury poisonings and said: “If I have a message to Putin, it’s that we don’t want a cold war but we do want to see an improvement in the way Russia behaves.” A senior diplomatic source said: “This seems to be the latest desperate attempt by the Kremlin to save face after it was internationally shamed in the wake of the Skripal attack. “Boris rumbled them pretty quickly and ended the call. It is tragic to see a major international power reduced to failed pranks you would usually only see on Trigger Happy TV.” Stolyarov and Kuznetsov have previously denied links to the Russian security services. The Telegraph understands that the hoaxers contacted Sir Alan, who was taken in by them and arranged for the "prime minister" to call Mr Johnson's private office. Sir Elton John thought he was talking to Vladimir Putin Credit: Getty Mr Johnson believed he was answering a routine call to congratulate a new national leader. Sources close to Foreign Secretary insisted he quickly realised something was wrong and started asking questions to verify the caller's identity before ending the call. Details of the call were first published in the pro-Kremlin newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda, in which Stolyarov said Mr Johnson had been a "smart diplomat, an intellectual" who did not fall into the trap of making indiscreet comments. He added that it was "probably the first time the person we talked to was not a fool". When the hoaxers called Sir Elton, they convinced him he was talking to Vladimir Putin and that the Russian President had agreed to meet him to discuss LGBT issues. A Downing Street spokesman said: "Obviously this shouldn’t have happened and an investigation is underway to determine the circumstances around this call and to make sure that this does not happen again.”

  • MH17: Plane shot down with Russian military missile launcher, investigators conclude

    Golocal247.com news

    An international investigation has said the Russian military brought the missile that downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 into eastern Ukraine, leading to the tragedy that killed 298 people.  The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team said last year the Buk 9M38 surface-to-air missile in question arrived from Russia and was fired from territory held by Russia-backed separatists.  But Thursday's press conference in the Netherlands for the first time implicated the Russian military, of which president Vladimir Putin is the commander in chief, in the catastrophe that shocked the world in July 2014.  Although the JIT did not say who pulled the trigger, the conclusion that the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade from Kursk, a unit of a “few hundred people,” was operating the missile marks a step closer to naming the perpetrators.  Investigators said they were working toward a court case in the Netherlands against those who fired the Buk Telar missile system as well as higher-ups in their chain of command. They are reportedly focusing on 100 or so suspects.  Dutch police investigator Wilbert Paulissen next to the engine casing and thrust nozzile of the missile that brought down MH17 Credit: FRANCOIS LENOIR /Reuters The allegations come after Yulia Skripal said she was lucky to have survived an “attempted assassination” with a nerve agent in Salisbury, raising pressure on Russia three weeks before the start of the World Cup here.  The JIT said it had again requested information from Russia, which had failed to tell it of this missile unit's activities, and put out another open call for confidential witness testimony.  “We are looking for people that were directly or indirectly involved in the downing of MH17, but we're also thinking of individuals who were responsible for the operation that deployed the Buk Telar,” said Wilbert Paulissen, head of the Dutch national police. Russian officials began pushing back against the Dutch allegation almost immediately. Moscow has since the days after the plane went down put out a raft of unlikely theories to shift the blame to Ukraine and vetoed a proposed United Nations tribunal. Video: The Telegraph's Roland Oliphant visits site of downed jet Yury Shvytkin, a member of parliament from the ruling party, called the investigation “aggression against our country like that during the Skripal case” and claimed it would have to “at the minimum” find a soldier's fingerprints on the Buk missile to accuse Moscow. One of the two main Russian state television channels ignored the news on Thursday afternoon, while the other posted a news item on its website that avoided any mention of the Russian military involvement.  The defence ministry could not immediately be reached for comment, even as it continued to post on social media footage tanks and ships at war games. Those killed when the missile hit MH17 at 33,000 feet, raining bodies and debris onto the farm fields below, were mostly Dutch but also of 17 other nationalities including British, Australian, Malaysian and Indonesian. Mr Paulissen said a “fingerprint for the missile” had been established through seven markings and features on the sides of the launcher visible in social media images. Photographs, videos and witness testimony traced the progress of this launcher in a convoy from Kursk to the Ukrainian border in June 2014, and it was photographed again near the launch site on the day of the catastrophe.  Investigators also detonated a Buk missile to compare the debris to that found in the fields and bodies of MH17 victims, according to Australian federal police commander Jennifer Hurst. She displayed an engine casing and thrust nozzle from the Buk responsible with a serial number she said indicated it had been produced at a factory near Moscow in 1986. FAQ | Flight MH17 Asked whether there were satellite images of the launch, Dutch chief prosecutor Fred Westerbeke said the investigation had more information that it could not reveal at the risk of “showing our cards to the other side”. He added it was entering the “last phase” ahead of possible legal proceedings.  Relatives of MH17 victims said in a letter in the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta on Wednesday that a “shadow” hangs over the World Cup, and the “Russian leaders who will profess to welcome the world with open arms, are those who are chiefly to blame for shattering our world”.
