Zakharova compared Truss’ words about nuclear weapons with Austin Powers’ series

The statement of the candidate for the post of British Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of the United Kingdom Liz Truss about her readiness to use nuclear weapons could set off a new series of spy comedies about Austin Powers. This was stated in her Telegram channel by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova.

“This is an impeccable start for the new Austin Powers series. Now the role of the “man of mystery of international proportions” a woman is playing»,— wrote a diplomat.

Austin Powers— a series of spy comedy films: “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” (1997), “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” (1999) and “Austin Powers: Goldmember” (2002).

The films satirize the unrealistic plots, constant sexual innuendo and stereotyped characters associated with 1960s spy films.

Earlier in the day, Truss said that in the event of a threat to Britain, she, as prime minister, would be ready to use nuclear weapons. “I think this [use of nuclear weapons] is an important duty of the prime minister. I'm ready to do it, — she said.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres has repeatedly spoken out against countries with nuclear weapons admitting the possibility of war with their use. He also called on world leaders to permanently abandon the possibility of using nuclear weapons. “Today humanity is only one misunderstanding, one miscalculation, from nuclear annihilation. <…> So far we have been lucky, but luck— this is not a strategy, — spoke the secretary general.

The Russian Foreign Ministry also called the risk of a nuclear conflict “very significant”, but noted that the countries of the “nuclear five”, including Russia, are committed to the thesis of the inadmissibility of nuclear war. “The danger is serious, it is real, it should not be underestimated”, — Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke.
