Liz Truss to punish Vladimir Putin by running Russia’s economy for a week

author avatar by 2 years ago

Britain has imposed its toughest sanction on Russia to date; namely, putting Liz Truss in control of their economy for up to a week.

Following President Putin’s declaration that the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions are now officially Russian, Britain has responded swiftly and assertively to cause as much damage to the rogue state as possible. 

Vladimir Putin made the announcement on Friday following a series of referenda that were such a sham it would make even Dominic Cummings blush, claiming the regions now to be part of Russia.

British ambassador to Russia, Simon Williams, explained, “You can’t just destroy a county and claim to be a great leader.

“But enough about all the Tory Party leaders since 2015 – what Putin has done is outrageous, and we need to take him down a peg or two.”

He explained, “We need to cripple the Russian economy, devalue their currency and throw them into a cost of living crisis, and that’s why we’ve told Liz Truss to go over there and to try her best at managing their economy for a week.”

Political commentator Christopher James responded, “This is win-win!

“Russia may never recover from the economic damage she will inflict over the next seven days, and we’re just glad that she’s out of the country for a bit – every time she opens her mouth the pound plummets even further so the longer she is wrapped up with Russia’s economy, the better.”
