Piers Morgan makes sarcastic dig at Harry and Meghan over Ukraine crisis response

Piers Morgan has called out Meghan Markle and Prince Harry over their response to the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

Russian president Vladimir Putin, 69, authorised what he called a “special military operation” to “demilitarise and denazify” its neighbours on 24 February.

The attack was launched in the early hours of yesterday morning, with Russian troops crossing the border into Ukraine and missiles being launched at airports and military bases.

In response to the invasion, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a statement on their Archewell website, which read: "Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and all of us at Archewell stand with the people of Ukraine against this breach of international and humanitarian law and encourage the global community and its leaders to do the same."


But one person wasn't impressed with Meghan, 40, and 37 year old Harry's message as Piers immediately shared their statement on his Twitter feed before taking a brutal and sarcastic swipe at them.

The 56 year old, who recently shared a touching tribute to Kate Garraway, said: "This will really rattle Putin."

Piers was one of the first to speak out after the initial attack as he said Russian president Putin declaring war on the neighbouring country “shameful”.

“BREAKING: Putin’s invaded Ukraine. This is an act of war by a bully-boy thug who doesn’t think the rest of the world has the guts or will to stop him. Shameful," she said.

In a separate post, he added: “Putin’s doing this because he got away with it last time in Crimea.

"And if he gets away with it again in Ukraine, he’ll keep invading other countries until he restores the Soviet Union.

“The world must unite to stop this ruthless dictator – before it’s too late.”

Piers isn't the only celebrity in the UK to speak out about the situation unfolding in Ukraine as Strictly Come Dancer judge Motsi Mabuse has been left heartbroken.
