    Interviewed by FranceInfo, the two Russian comedians recounted how they played the French president, exposing the unpreparedness of the highest services of the Franch state at the same time.

    On the website of FranceInfo, on Tuesday, April 30, the two Russian humorists recounted the prank they played on Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday, April 24, after the election of the new Ukrainian president.

    Vovan and Lexus have published their interview on YouTube. “We left our number and Macron called us, ” the two said.

    One hears how the French head of state, congratulates his counterpart, Vladimir Zelensky. “Hello Vladimir! Good morning Mister President, congratulations!” the voice of Emmanuel Macron gushes.

    One of the two comedians, the impersonator for the occasion, responds: “With 73 percent (votes) of Ukrainians, it’s just amazing (…) I feel like Putin who has the same score.”

    Emmanuel Macron counters: “I feel that in any case at this stage, the system at home is a little less well organized, so it must be a little more natural. You had not yet put all your opponents in prison.”

    Thus, the conversation with Emmanuel Macron quickly focused on the tension between Russia and Ukraine. During the discussion, the false President Zelensky asks the head of the French state if he would be ready to grant an extradition warrant in the event that the outgoing President Poroshenko is tried and escapes to France. “I do not think France comes to mind as his first destination,” Macron says, dodging the question.

    Lexus, aka Alexei Stolyarov, explained to FranceInfo, that the pair had wanted to troll Macron “long ago”. The two comedians have already trolled Jean-Claude Juncker, Elton John or Boris Johnson, recalled the news site.

    He added: “When we saw that Emmanuel Macron had met Vladimir Zelensky before the elections, but that they had remained only twenty minutes together, we realized that they did not have any real links yet, and there was no diplomatic line set up yet. So we called Emmanuel Macron’s administration. We were the first people to do it.”

    “We want to bring down the masks of politics. We are imitating real calls to see how politicians react in real life,” Lexus told FranceInfo. For its part, the Elysee declined to comment on this latest hoax.

    The French President’s entourage would only tell the public broadcaster that Emmanuel Macron had a good conversation with the new Ukrainian president, Vladimir Zelensky.
