Ukraine war LIVE – Bloodthirsty Vladimir Putin warns Russia is stronger than EVER but can’t shake of health rumours

WAR OF WORDS

– Why is Russia invading Ukraine?

– Will there be World War 3? 

– Will the UK go to war?

– Help support Ukraine by donating your clothes

VLADIMIR Putin has warned the west that Russia is stronger than ever, after military and naval improvements.

This comes just days after the tyrant said the world-ending Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile would be delivered in the next six months, amid heightened tensions with NATO countries.

The despot boasted: “The missile can break through all modern anti-missile defences.

“There is nothing like this anywhere in the world, and won’t be for a long time.”

However the Russian president has been unable to shake whispers about his declining his health, leading to suggestions that he will soon be ousted.

And while loss of support for Mr Putin is likely to come too late to bring the Ukrainian war to a swift end, an official said there is growing talk about who will replace him.

According to Yahoo News an official said: “There is more chatter about his health, more speculation about succession,

“One of my contacts said to me President Putin did look tired and a bit old but he has dragged his country back 40 years in four months.”

Meanwhile, UK defence chiefs say Russian forces have suffered “extraordinary” losses in Ukraine.

  • Dog search team steps up training ahead of Ukraine deployment to find bodies

    A dog search team which specialises in recovering human bodies is stepping up its training ahead of an expected deployment to Ukraine.

    Springer spaniel Bracken, sprocker Bramble and Dougal, a Labrador-springer spaniel mix, are travelling to Italy on Thursday to hone their skills while on standby for a trip to the war zone.

    Handlers John Miskelly, a British Army veteran, and NHS nurse, Emma Dryburgh, have received a request to help in Ukraine but are waiting to receive confirmation that it is safe enough for them to travel.

  • Russia says West is spreading lies about causes of world’s food crisis

    Russia on Wednesday said the West was spreading lies about the causes of the global food crisis which Moscow said was being stoked by the sanctions imposed on Russia by the United States and European Union due to the invasion of Ukraine.

    Besides the death and devastation sown by Russia’s invasion, the war and the West’s attempt to cripple Russia’s economy as punishment have sent the price of grain, cooking oil, fertiliser and energy soaring, hurting global growth.

    Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters in Moscow she was dismayed by repeated Western statements that Russia was to blame for the global food crisis.

    “It is a lie – such accusations are complete lies,” Zakharova said. “So the West can supply all these arms to Ukraine but for some reason nothing can be taken out of Ukraine?”

  • Russian Foreign Minister heads to Iran for talks

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was due in Iran Wednesday for talks on boosting trade and energy cooperation as the two countries grapple with Western economic sanctions.

    Tehran and Moscow both have huge oil and gas reserves but are constrained by sanctions that limit their ability to export their output.

    “Lavrov will meet our foreign minister (Hossein Amir-Abdollahian) tomorrow (Thursday),” Iran’s official IRNA news agency said.

    Russia was slapped with sanctions following its February invasion of neighbouring Ukraine, while Iran’s economy has been reeling under biting sanctions reimposed by the US in 2018, following Washington’s withdrawal from a nuclear accord between Tehran and major powers.

    Russia played a key role in that deal, taking charge of Iran’s excess enriched uranium stocks beyond those permitted under the agreement.

    It has been party to stumbling talks between Iran and the powers on reviving the 2015 deal with renewed US participation.

    The negotiations have been stalled since March amid sharp differences between Tehran and Washington on the US sanctions that would be lifted in exchange for Iran’s return to full compliance with the agreed limits to its nuclear activities.
