Recently, Boris Johnson wrote an article in response to Putin's speech about liberalism: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/06/30/will-prove-vladimir-putin-wrong-leaving-eu-october-31/
There is something, that surprised me - Boris Johnson is going to make Brexit to prove Putin wrong (don't understand how, but nevertheless). But some times ago, I heard that Brexit is fully inspired by Russia: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jun/17/why-isnt-there-greater-outrage-about-russian-involvement-in-brexit
I found even a Wikipedia article about it. Truth or not - no one knows, but what does it mean? If Boris Johnson is against Putin, and wants to make him wrong - and on the other side - Russia (as heard in English press) started Brexit, on what side is Mr. Johnson?
I don't want to know his internal motivations. I'm just seeing a chaos and want to understand what is that.
