Kaleniuk took on the Prime Minister at a press conference in Warsaw, Poland on Tuesday morning.

She told Johnson World War 3 had “already started” and lambasted him for failing to introduce a no-fly zone.

There are concerns that creating a no-fly zone over Ukraine would effectively be a declaration of war between Russia and Nato.

Others involved with the group include leading American philosopher Francis Fukuyama (who famously heralded the ascendancy of liberal democracy in the 1990s as the “end of history”) and the UK investigative journalist Oliver Bullough, the author of Moneyland.

Also on the group’s supervisory board is Karen Greenway, a former FBI special agent on the force’s international corruption unit.

The group has been critical of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy before – including accusing him of failing to get a grip on the country’s problem with corruption.
