Meloni suffered a phone scam from a Russian imposter posing as an African leader

They claim he was duped “by an impostor posing as the president of the African Union Commission.”

The Prime Minister of Italy, Giorgia Meloni, became the victim of deception by a Russian “impostor” who, pretending to be an African leader, phoned him for information about the European position on Ukraine and immigration matters.

The Office of the Diplomatic Counselor of the Italian Presidency issued a statement today regretting having been “deceived by an impostor posing as the president of the African Union Commission.”

This subject, the note reads, was connected by telephone with Meloni on September 18, within the framework of the “intense effort” at that time to strengthen relations with African leaders before the United Nations General Assembly. The “cheat” is done by the couple Russian comedians Vovan and Lexus, who in the past did the same as other European politicians and published the conversation on their networks.

First, Meloni is critical of Europe’s handling of the migration phenomenon. “Europe has long believed that it can solve the problem by leaving Italy alone. They do not understand that this is impossible because the scale of this phenomenon includes, in my opinion, not only the EU (European Union) but the United Nations”, Meloni was heard saying. And he added, “But the problem is that others are not interested. They did not answer the phone when I called them. “Everyone agrees that Italy has to solve this problem alone, and that is a stupid position.”

During an important part of the conversation, the supposed “African leader”, the impostor, asked the prime minister about the war in Ukraine after the Russian invasion and when he saw the end. “I see that many are tired. To tell the truth, we may be close to the moment when everyone understands that we need a way. he said.

In addition, Melons He said the Ukrainian counteroffensive continues but “may not go as expected” and “without changing the fate of the conflict.” “Everyone understands that it can last for many years if we don’t find a solution. The problem is: what is an acceptable solution for both without opening other conflicts? You know what I think about Libya,” he said.

The impostor also asked him what he thought of the ideology of Ukrainian nationalism and the historical leader Stepan Bandera: “I think nationalism is a problem that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin has,” he concluded. The Russian “comedians” are Lexus, alias Alexis Stoliarov, and Vovan, Vladimir Krasnov, and in the past they have fooled other politicians such as the president of Poland, Andrej Duda, posing as his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, or the former German chancellor, Angela Merkel.
