That said the British chief of defense intelligence, Lieutenant General Sir Jim Hockenhull frustrated despot has now adopted a strategy of pure attrition.

He said: “This will result in more civilian casualties, destruction of Ukraine’s infrastructure and aggravation of the humanitarian crisis.”

Ben Wallace said there are now a number of levers Putin could pull to try save his battle plan and win the war at all costs.


The defense minister said Putin will almost certainly follow Russia’s textbook and step up his bombing of Ukrainian cities.

In an article for ConHome, he said he would likely “blow the dust off old Soviet doctrine and resort to encirclement followed by prolonged bombardment and siege”.

Though plagued by failures, Western officials say Putin has the artillery arsenal to mercilessly crush Ukrainian cities.

One said: “There is an enormous amount of artillery ammunition that the Russian armed forces possess and it can be a logistical challenge for them to get everything in place.

“But if they’re able to get those supplies forward, they could do that kind of artillery barrage for a very, very long time.”

Russian soldiers have resorted to crude cluster attacks, causing huge civilian casualties after exhausting their limited supply of high-precision missiles.

Even when aimed at enemy troops, the wild “dumb bombs” often miss their target and scatter on innocent Ukrainians.

The Defense Ministry yesterday released chilling footage of unguided rockets pelting civilians in war-torn Chernihiv.


Mr Wallace warned Putin against unleashing horrific chemical weapons on Ukraine to brutalize the population.

He said this could be done “either with a false flag operation to try to justify more violence, or as a direct military tactic like we’ve seen sarin gas used in Syria.”

The Kremlin backed the Syrian despot as he slaughtered civilians with chemical weapons for several years.

The use of nerve gas and poison gas weapons is a war crime and would further build the case to bring Putin to justice in The Hague.


Mr Wallace said Putin could even try to provoke other countries into joining the war to give him an excuse to step up his atrocities.

He said: “Putin may feel that the way out of the hole he has made for himself is to thrash around and hope that other nations will join the fight and therefore give him an excuse to escalate.” give.”

The Defense Sec warned that this would meet with a “robust response” from the West, warning “It would be unwise to test us.”

Boris Johnson has consistently refused to be drawn into a direct conflict with Putin as it would trigger World War III between Russia and NATO

The prime minister is expected to hold private talks with Joe Biden at a NATO summit in Brussels next week to chart a peace plan.

He could also attend an emergency EU council next door for the first time since Brexit to discuss the crisis.


Western officials have warned that Putin could flex his muscles as a nuclear power to try to intimidate the West into pulling out.

Shortly after waging war against Ukraine, he put his nuclear arsenal on extra alert – and he was able to dangle the threat of another strike.

A Pentagon official said: “As this war and its aftermath slowly weaken conventional Russian strength.

“Russia is likely to increasingly rely on its nuclear deterrent to signal the West and project strength to its internal and external audiences.”

A Western official added: “Escalation is something we remain concerned about.

“And we are watching very closely all those areas where there could be an escalation, which of course is not limited to the nuclear area, but could also include cyber attacks.

“It could involve the use of chemical or biological weapons.”
