Dan Wootton, 38, defended Boris Johnson, 57, after the Prime Minister flew to Kiev to show solidarity between the United Kingdom and Ukraine. During a press conference, Mr Johnson warned the “whole European security architecture” could be under threat from the Kremlin.
However, the Kiwi-born journalist tore into the Prime Minister’s European counterparts and suggested Brexit Britain was leading the way as tensions with Moscow continue to rise.
Mr Wootton said: “Don’t get me wrong, Boris Johnson has failed on many counts, as all Prime Minister’s do.
“But he must be given this opportunity to lead the UK out of the pandemic and deliver his manifesto in peacetime.
“When all resources are not focused on battling a virus.

“That started today as he took an important trip to Ukraine as a world leader dedicated to avoiding war and one prepared to stand up to the Russian bully Putin.
“Something Biden won’t do, something Macron won’t do, certainly something the new German Chancellor Olaf Scholz won’t do with his pathetic policy of appeasement.”
Mr Wootton went on to claim the former Foreign Secretary delivered an “assured” performance alongside Ukraine’s leader Volodymyr Zelensky, 44.
Ukrainian MPs have already appeared to thank Brexit Britain for the support it has offered Kiev.
Politicians held up several national flags, including two Union Jacks, in the Rada.
Other MPs clung onto flags from America, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Poland, Turkey and even NATO.
Despite Mr Wootton’s complimentary comments, Mr Johnson still faces pressure at home following the publication of Sue Gray’s ‘partygate’ report.
Peter Aldous, 60, revealed he had even decided to hand in a letter to the Chairman of the 1922 Committee.

The Remain-supporting Waveney MP said on Twitter: “After a great deal of soul-searching, I have reached the conclusion that the Prime Minister should resign.
“It is clear that he has no intention of doing so and I have therefore written to the Chairman of the 1922 Committee of Backbench Conservative MPs, advising him that I have no confidence in the Prime Minister as Leader of the Conservative Party.
“I have never taken such action before and had hoped that I would not be put in such an invidious position.
“Whilst I am conscious that others will disagree with me, I believe that this is in the best interests of the country, the Government and the Conservative Party.”
