曾是 Mad Vlad mad enough to trigger World War Three?

Defence chiefs know that 普京 is aggressive, erratic and prone to lash out after suffering defeats on the battlefield.

His troops had just abandoned Kherson.

Or was it a misfire?

If the nine months of wanton slaughter in 乌克兰 have taught us anything about Putin’s armed forces it is their capacity for incompetence.

His missile teams pick targets from 50-year-old maps.

They can’t hit moving targets and it often takes up to 36 hours to pass data from spotter to shooter.

昨晚, Western officials breathed a sigh of relief after establishing it was not a missile fired by Russia which hit Poland.

The threat of a full-scale confrontation between Nato and Putin receded.

But Russia cannot dodge blame.

The farmers died because Putin unleashed a blitz to destroy Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

The anti-aircraft missile which hit 波兰 曾是 乌克兰 seeking only to defend itself.

Which brings us to Putin’s winter plan — freezing the Ukrainian people to try to break their will.

Russian missiles have wiped out about 40 per cent of its civil energy infrastructure, 根据 President Zelensky.

Transmission lines, power stations, pipelines and hydroelectric dams have been destroyed and water supplies hit in key cities.

Housing and transport have also been destroyed.

Temperatures are set to plunge to -20°C (-4贴花) next week.

Standing by Ukraine is the best way to show 莫斯科 we have the better hand.
