Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spent over 10 minutes on the phone with Russian pranksters in January, when they used a bot to pose as Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Russian comedy duo Vovan and Lexus, a.k.a. Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, posted audio from the call online this week, in their latest successful prank on a celebrity figure. The comedians have pulled similar stunts with Prince Harry, U.S. vice president-elect Kamala Harris and actor Joaquin Phoenix in the past.

The fake Thunberg asked Trudeau about a wide range of topics, including the Iran plane crash, U.S. President Donald Trump, NATO and Prince Harry's relationship with Meghan Markle. "She" also repeatedly asked Trudeau about Terrance and Phillip, the Canadian cartoon characters from the show South Park.

The PM eventually clued into the South Park reference and ended the call.

The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) tells Global News that the prank happened in January, shortly after Ukraine Airlines Flight 752 crashed in Iran. Many world leaders were reaching out to Trudeau at the time to offer their condolences over the 85 Canadians who died in the crash, the PMO says.

  Trudeau turns to the bully pulpit as the pandemic surges — because that's what he has left Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may be the most visible political figure in Canada's COVID-19 fight, but the front line decisions are being made at the provincial level. That leaves him with the twin tools of rhetoric and public money — and the pandemic's recent trajectory suggest they may not be enough.For the first two minutes, the prime minister ignored the prepared text and spoke plainly and directly into the camera.

Talk about prime pranking . Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was recently duped by a pair of Russian pranksters , BBC News reports. Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov released the audio recording of the chat in which they masqueraded as Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg .

Russian pranksters posing as famous environmental activist Greta Thunberg reportedly had a phone conversation with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and among The PM agreed with fake Greta Thunberg and said he had spoken with world leaders and encouraged them to reduce tensions.

"The Prime Minister determined the call was fake and promptly ended it," a PMO spokesperson said. He added that Trudeau is not the only world leader to be targeted by these pranksters.

In the audio recording, the fake Thunberg says she's concerned that the Iran incident will lead to a "Third World War." She then tries to bait Trudeau into saying something about Trump, who she describes as the "main bastard" who is "doing everything to kill us."

"I understand your words," Trudeau says. "My responsibility is to work with the world leaders that other people choose ... I can certainly understand that people feel very, very strongly about him."

Obama: Canada-U.S. Relationship Can Be ‘Mended Relatively Quickly' Post-Trump

  Obama: Canada-U.S. Relationship Can Be ‘Mended Relatively Quickly' Post-Trump Barack Obama says the United States’ relationship with Canada is not “at the top of the list” of his worries in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s presidency because the North American neighbours have no choice but to get along. “I would say that what we’ve seen over the last few years is anomalous,” the former U.S. president told CBC’s “The Current” in a wide-ranging interview that aired Monday. Watch: What a Biden presidency may mean for Canada Host Matt Galloway said the relationship between Ottawa and Washington has taken a “real battering” in the last four years. He noted the Trump administration’s move to hit Canada with controversial steel and aluminum tariffs.

Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, who go by the stage names Vovan and Lexus, trolled the hell out of Kamala Harris and convinced her that Swedish green teen activist Greta Thunberg and her father secretly recorded President Trump .

Audio of Mr Trudeau speaking to an accomplice of pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov in January has been released by the pair. The prime minister apparently fielded questions from the fake Ms Thunberg , on Nato, world peace and Donald Trump . "This is not the first prank call

"Leave NATO, drop your weapons, pick flowers, smile at nature," the fake Thunberg says in broken English.

"I also dream of a world in which soldiers are not necessary, but we don't live in that world yet, unfortunately," Trudeau says. "It does take people to push back against those who would harm innocents."

The PM thanked "Thunberg" on the call for her visit to Montreal last year, saying that it helped shape the conversation during the last federal election.

The pranksters tried to convince Trudeau to join a vague "club" of world leaders, but he refused to do so without further details.

They also tried to draw him out on Prince Harry and Markle, who were in the process of leaving the Royal Family at the time.

"I sometimes think that his wife manipulates him," the fake Thunberg says on the call.

"I think in every relationship there are complicated concessions and compromises that are the art of living together," Trudeau responds. "I have met Meghan a few times and she's always been lovely."

Blame, Partisan Shots Over COVID-19 Pandemic Could Be Signs Of Spring Election (Analysis)

  Blame, Partisan Shots Over COVID-19 Pandemic Could Be Signs Of Spring Election (Analysis) OTTAWA — As Canadians prepare for the holidays, their politicians are already in a finger-pointing season that has kicked into high gear. The cause? A potential spring election. Many Conservatives and Liberals believe a federal contest is likely in the new year, and the parties’ new strategies reflect it. “We are seeing now the partisan side of what is going to happen,” said Jenni Byrne, prime minister Stephen Harper’s former campaign manager and a close friend of current Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole, on the latest episode “Follow-Up,” HuffPost Canada’s political podcast. “I think it’s actually a good opportunity for O’Toole,” Byrne said.

He adds that the couple seemed to be acting in the best interests of their family, including their newborn son Archie.

Harry, Markle and their son eventually settled in California after spending a few months in Canada.

The fake Thunberg name-drops Terrance and Phillip a few times throughout the call, but she gives away the prank when she brings them up again around the 10-minute mark.

"By the way Mr. Prime Minister, can you introduce me to Terrance and Phillip? I know that they are big stars in Canada," she says.

Trudeau initially says he will ask his team to connect Thunberg to the comedy duo.

"Oh, that's nice, so you can introduce me to Terrance and Phillip?" she says.

"Wait," Trudeau says. "Terrance and Phillip — were they not in South Park? ... I believe they are South Park parodies of Canadians."

The PM then politely ends the call.
