November 23, 2022

Poland's President Andrzej Duda was pranked by a Russian pretending to be the French president.

"Polish President Andrzej Duda spoke with a Russian prank caller pretending to be French President Emmanuel Macron just hours after an explosion near the Ukrainian border killed two, the Polish government confirmed Tuesday," Fox News reported.

"Duda’s office took to Twitter to confirm that someone who impersonated Macron was able to connect with the Polish president and spoke to him for over seven minutes," added Fox News.

"After the rocket explosion in Przewodów, during ongoing calls with heads of state and government, a person claiming to be French President Emmanuel Macron was connected," Duda’s office reported. "On call President Duda realized from the unusual way of conducting the conversation by the interlocutor that there might have been an attempt at fraud and ended the conversation."

"After this merger, the KPRP immediately undertook explanatory actions in cooperation with the relevant services," the office of the President added, referring to Duda’s political party.

According to a Reuters, Russian comedians Vovan and Lexus posted the seven-and-a-half-minute call with Duda where listeners could hear someone attempting to speak with a French accent while engaging with the president.
