Former US Ambassador McFaul says someone called Ukrainian officials on his behalf
former ambassador USA in Russia Michael McFaul complained that someone contacted a number of Ukrainian officials, impersonating him. The diplomat wrote about this in Twitter.
“Attention. Someone impersonating me contacted several Ukrainian officials (in Russian). My area code is not 202. This is Washington. Ours in California is 650. Before accepting a call from me, authenticate through the second channel (email, private message, friend, etc.),” he said.
Earlier, the Russian prankster Vovan told how they manage to get through to politicians. According to him, the pranksters arrange a call through the official office in writing. He stressed that the letters must be properly formatted and written in diplomatic language.
Previously Vovan and Lexus played out ex-president of the United States George Bushwho during a conversation with them declaredwhat a mission Ukraine is to destroy as many Russian soldiers as possible. In March, pranksters on behalf of the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmyhal got through Interior Minister Great Britain Priti Patel. In a conversation with pranksters, the British minister announced her readiness to help Ukrainian nationalists.
