据英国天空新闻网站报道,前几日英国国防大臣本•华莱士接到了一通自称“乌克兰总理”的电话,结果却发现对方是假冒的!  




天空新闻报道称,这通“诈骗电话”以视频方式进行,而华莱士则怀疑是俄方设计的。随后,他立刻下令对这一安全漏洞展开调查。

An imposter posing as Ukraine's prime minister tricked his way into a video call with the UK's defence secretary in a suspected Russian ploy. Ben Wallace ordered an immediate inquiry into the security breach on Thursday.

根据英国国防部的消息透露,这通电话打了10分钟,对方表现得麻烦缠身,很像乌克兰总理丹尼斯•什米加尔。作为骗局的一部分,假冒者的身后放置了一面乌克兰国旗。

During the hoax call Wallace engaged for about 10 minutes with the man, who appeared to have gone through a lot of trouble to look like the real Ukrainian premier, Denys Shmyhal, a defence source said. A Ukrainian flag had been placed behind the imposter as part of the ruse.

BBC的报道则显示,视频电话是通过电子邮件建立,据称来自乌克兰驻英国伦敦大使馆的一位助手,电子邮件发送到英国的一个政府部门,随后转送到英国国防部。

The video call was set up after an email, purportedly from an aide at the Ukrainian embassy in London, was sent to a government department and then forwarded to the Ministry of Defence.

视频中,对方问华莱士英国是否会向黑海派遣战舰,乌克兰是否应该拥有核武器、是否应该放弃加入北约成为“中立国”等问题。

Wallace was apparently asked about whether the UK would send warships to the Black Sea, and if Ukraine should get nuclear weapons. The defence secretary was also apparently asked about the prospect of Ukraine dropping its ambition to join NATO and becoming a "neutral" state.

英国防部的消息还显示,华莱士被问到了“一些可能做出不当言论的引导性问题”,但是他本人并没有发表不恰当、非事实的言论。不过国防部担心,在对方可能利用这通电话歪曲或剪辑华莱士的回应。目前,尚未得知假冒者是如何成功欺骗了国防部的官员们。

The defence source said Mr Wallace "was asked leading questions to encourage inappropriate comments" but he "didn't say anything that was not factual or appropriate". But defence sources say they are concerned that there may be an attempt to distort or edit Mr Wallace's answers before he terminated the call. It is not clear how the imposter managed to trick MoD officials that he was the real Ukrainian prime minister.

据BBC报道,除了华莱士,内政大臣普丽蒂•帕特尔也接到了类似的“诈骗电话”。
 


另据路透社报道,这也并非英国政界第一次接到“诈骗电话”。2018年5月,当时任英国外交大臣的鲍里斯•约翰逊曾与假装为亚美尼亚总理的人通话,双方谈论了国际关系。

It is not the first time British ministers have been the victims of a hoax call. In May 2018 Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was foreign minister at the time, talked about international relations with a hoax caller who pretended to be the Armenian prime minister.
