The Kremlin, Mad Vlad’s house of power, has branded former British prime minister Boris Johnson an “idiot” who should be sectioned in a psychiatric hospital over his views on Ukraine ’s pathway into NATO.
The deputy head of Vladimir Putin’s security council, Dmitry Medvedev, slammed Johnson for criticising NATO’s "mealy-mouthed procrastination" after a bloc-wide meeting failed to push Ukraine’s admittance any further.
“Former Britain's PM [Boris] Johnson suggested admitting Ukraine to NATO 'without conditions’,” the Putin loyalist ranted on Telegram.

“He, a retired idiot, should be admitted to a psychiatric clinic without conditions.
“There he would be able to play a cool guy demanding to start the Third World War.”
Johnson, who this week welcomed his eighth child into the world, wrote that the West had failed Ukraine at the NATO summit in Lithuania.
"All the Ukrainians got this week was an 'invitation' to join NATO, ’when allies are agreed and when conditions are met’,” he wrote.

“No wonder President Zelenskyy found it hard, at first, to conceal his frustration.”
The Ukrainians should have been told that their accession would happen “as soon as the war was over”, potentially from next year.
"That is madness,” he added.

He also claimed that Europe and the United States have been complacent with Putin ever since he got into power, writing: “There has been a Western tendency to make the same mistake, over and over again: to overestimate Putin, and to underestimate Ukraine.”
Ukraine’s potential membership with NATO is a highly fraught issue, with the two sides becoming increasingly frustrated with the other.

While some want Ukraine to join as quickly as possible in order to provide support to the country and get Russia ’s invasion over as quickly as possible, others see Ukraine’s membership as something that could spark World War 3.
One expert warned that Russia’s trigger-happy nature might lead it to deploying tactical nukes in its invasion of Ukraine.
The Daily Star reportedthat NATO expert Dr Gavin Hall said: "The worst case – Russia is so threatened by Ukraine in NATO that it launches a tactical nuclear strike on Kyiv… but again, the likelihood is 0.01%.”
