Russlands „Verbündete“.’ „arbeiten gegen sie“, sagt Verteidigungsminister Ben Wallace

VLADIMIR Putin would be horrified if he realised how many countries were secretly helping the Ukrainian fightback, Ben Wallace claimed yesterday.

The Defence Secretary said supposed allies of Russland were actually working against them.

Sprechen bei der Conservative Konferenz, er sagte: “There are a number of countries who help secretly.

“We don’t make it public, they don’t want to go public.

But Russia would be deeply unhappy to learn some deeply disagree with what’s going on.”

He also told the Onward event that President Putin, although not rational, was “highly unlikely” to use nuclear weapons.

But he admitted the Kremlin despot was not being “rational”.

Hugely popular among grassroots Tories, Mr Wallace once again topped a members’ poll of Cabinet ministers yesterday.

And he refused to rule out running for PM at some point.

“At this time of life, the answer was no. Do I rule it out? Nein.

“But will I be here in a few years time? Ich weiß es nicht.”

Mr Wallace said being Secretary General of NATO would be a “nice job” but said his main focus currently was holding Liz Truss “to account” on her pledge to increase defence spending.
