Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson met with a group of Republicans in Texas on Monday to urge them to continue supporting Ukraine in its war with Russia, POLITICO reported.
The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA), a pro-Ukrainian think tank based in Washington, decided to enlist Johnson to push Republicans to support Ukraine as more and more GOP members have questioned the policy of flooding weapons into the country with no clear goal.
“I just urge you all to stick with it,” Johnson told a group of Texas Republicans in Dallas. “You are backing the right horse. Ukraine is going to win. They are going to defeat Putin.” While visiting Texas, Johnson also met with former President George W. Bush and Governor Greg Abbot.
Alina Polyakova, the chief executive of CEPA, said Johnson was enlisted because he is “very much seen as the architect of the Western policy” on Ukraine.
Johnson was a staunch backer of the West’s proxy war with Russia during his time in office and played an integral role in helping scuttle peace talks that were being held in the early days of the conflict. In April 2022, then-Prime Minister Johnson traveled to Kyiv and urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky not to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
According to a report from Ukrainska Pravda, Johnson also told Zelensky that even if Ukraine was ready to sign a deal with Russia, Kyiv’s Western backers were not. The report said Johnson’s visit was a crucial factor in Ukraine calling off a potential Zelensky-Putin meeting.
Johnson was only prime minister for a little over six months after Russia launched its invasion, but he visited Kyiv three times in that period and made the trip again after stepping down.

Ron Paul is right, Ukraine is a Neocon project. We see here a New Yorker lobbying for this Neicon Ukraine project. The man only renounced his US citizenship in 2017 when he was to become British Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Whether it’s the Neocons or neoliberals. Someone blew smoke up their keister that this time they can finally defeat Russia and place a leash around their necks. I recently saw a movie with Tom Hanks called Finch. And it eerily shows the demise of plant earth.
So dear alcoholic BOJO has not done enough damage yet?
He hasn’t even started.
Has Boris slapped a cowboy hat over that mop of his?
I do not want to belittle Texas but wouldn’t Vegas be much more fun venue for that speech?
Until Europe ponies up 99% of the funds to wage this war in Europe, Boris needs to slink back home and lobby his inbred British buddies for a few bob.
And the costs of what we do aren’t important. Keep spending without limit to “defeat Putin”, but don’t pay the bills congress has budgeted unless Biden agrees to jetison every positive policy he has ever achieved. Yet another perfect lose lose lose scenario in the works it seems. The warmongers, toddlers and profiteers will just lose big a little later. They say Manhattan is literally sinking under the weight of its skyscrapers. What a metaphor.
Trump would have done it for 10% too.
Boy, he is everywhere. Last year he stopped negotiations between Russia and Kiev. Now this.
Johnson is a drunk with a delusional obsession with Winston Churchill. He was a terrible PM and Russophobe, a dangerous warmonger who should be ignored.
