At the beginning of March 2022, when tens of thousands of Ukrainians fled their country in the grip of the Russian invasion launched on February 24, the British media and several European countries criticized the small number of refugees hosted by the United Kingdom. “Macron went further by criticizing Boris very directly and his remarks made the front page of the ‘Guardian’, I believe on a Friday”, remembers Guto Harri, former director of communications for the ex-Prime Minister, in a new episode of his “Unprecedented” podcast uploaded Thursday.

“We have to rage against the ‘frogs'”
