It really does beggar belief – Vladimar Putin is reknowned as a genuine “tough guy” who doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks it too.
A fearless man who has single-handedly raised the profile of Russia around the world and has even talked about reinstating the Czar.
A man of this stature and strength being threatened by a leader as weak and insipid as Leo Varadkar goes beyond laughable and is utterly ludicrous.
It’s like a new lamb trying to threaten a wolf.
If there’s any consolation for an embarrassed Irish electorate, it’s the fact that when Putin and the Russian government stopped laughing, they probably just presumed it was fake news!
