LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday he feared Russia would deploy chemical weapons in Ukraine.

“The stuff that you’re hearing about chemical weapons, this is straight out of their playbook,” Johnson said in an interview with Sky News.

“They start saying that there are chemical weapons that have been stored by their opponents or by the Americans, and so when they themselves deploy chemical weapons, as I fear they may, they have a sort of … fake story, ready to go.”
