Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, who call themselves Vovan and Lexus, released a clip of their 10 minutes chat on YouTube, where they talked about world politics and "leaving Nato" with the Canadian prime minister, who responded to most of the questions diplomatically.

Who is Greta Thunberg and what does she want?

In the recording, the impersonator begins the conversation by offering condolences to Trudeau.

The Office of the Prime Minister on Tuesday said the pranksters had requested the call days after Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 was shot down after taking off from the Imam Khomeini Internation Airport in the Iranian capital of Tehran on January 8.

The prime minister apparently fielded questions from the fake Ms Thunberg, on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, world peace and Donald Trump.

"You are adults but you act like children", the prankster says.

"I understand that you have a lot of work and not so much time to talk to a young girl, but I'm very concerned about the growing worldwide crisis", the impersonator responds. We can make the world a better place if we love each other.

"I also dream of a world in which soldiers are not necessary, but we don't live in that world yet, unfortunately", Trudeau can be heard responding.

"There are many, many more things to work on", Trudeau said.

"I would be happy - I'll ask my team to try and figure out how we can connect you", he says.

"Leave Nato, drop your weapons, pick flowers, smile at nature", she said.

The PM thanked the joker for her "perspective" and "passionate words".

"I understand that you have a lot of work and not so much time to talk to a young girl, but I'm very concerned about the growing worldwide crisis", one of the impersonators responded.

"By the way, Mr. prime minister, can you introduce me to Terrance and Phillip?" "Because I don't have their direct coordinates with me now".

"I don't personally know them - I believe they are South Park parodies of Canadians", Trudeau said before ending the phone call.

Trudeau then politely says goodbye and the call is ended.
