Ukraine-Russia war LIVE – Monster Vladimir Putin BLASTED for Victory Day ‘fairytales’ about being ‘forced’ to invade
VLADIMIR Putin was spouting “fairytale claims” when falsely alleging that Nato is preparing for an invasion of Russian land during his Victory Day speech, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has said.
The Russian tyrant said the war in Ukraine had been necessary because the West was “preparing for the invasion of our land, including Crimea”.
Mr Wallace accused Putin and his “utterly complicit” generals of “hijacking” the memory of Russian troops repelling the Nazis in the Second World War.
“President Putin has made a number of fairytale claims for months and years now,” the Cabinet minister said. “If it wasn’t so tragic it would be amusing, but it isn’t.”
The news comes as Volodymyr Zelensky used the eve of Victory Day to say that Russia will “lose” this war as “evil always loses” during his daily address.
He went on to say that Russia had “forgotten everything that was important to the victors of World War Two”.
Zelensky said the whole free world could see that Ukraine was “the party of good in this war”.
