Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to the accusations of former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said allegations that Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson with a missile strike were “a lie.”

Johnson’s allegations are revealed in a new BBC documentary on the crisis in Ukraine.

Johnson said in a phone call before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that Vladimir Putin had threatened him with a missile strike.

“There was no missile threat,” Peskov told reporters on Monday.

“When President Putin announced threats to the security of the Russian Federation, he said that if Ukraine joined NATO, the potential deployment of NATO or American missiles at our borders would mean that any missile could reach Moscow in a matter of minutes.”

The Russian official said that Johnson deliberately lied or that Putin did not understand what he was talking about.

Peskov added that if the latter is true, people should be worried about Johnson.
