Putin likened HITLER after ‘Russian troops deported Ukrainians to labor camps’

VLADIMIR Putin was compared to Adolf Hitler yesterday after reports that his invading forces were forcibly deporting Ukrainians to sinister Russian labor camps.

Up to 5,000 residents were pooled from the besieged city Mariupul – many of whom were taken to Taganrog in south-west Russia in support Putin’s deranged claim that he “liberated” Ukraine.

Mayor of Mariupol Vadym Boychenko compared Moscow’s actions to “the horrific events of World War II, when the Nazis forcibly captured people”

Pavlo Kyrylenkothe head of the Donetsk regional administration said: “The occupiers are sending Mariupol residents to filtration camps, checking their phones and confiscating their Ukrainian documents.”

Ukrainian MP Inna Sovsun told Times Radio yesterday that people are being taken to “very distant parts of Russia” and “forced to sign papers saying they will stay in that area for two or three years and work in those areas for free”.

When asked if this was slave labor, she said: “It is, yes. It is.”

condemning of the Kremlin “vicious and barbaric attack on innocent civilians” Boris Johnson also drew a direct comparison with the actions of the Nazis under Adolf Hitler in the 1940s.

The Prime Minister warned the Russian President would not stop Ukraineand a Putin victory would usher in “the dawn of a new age of intimidation across Eastern Europe” and give “the green light to autocrats everywhere.”

The Tory leader said Putin was in “total panic” about the revolution in Moscow and was trying to “smother the flame of freedom in Ukraine”.

He added: “If Putin succeeds in crushing Ukraine, the green light will be for autocrats across the Middle and Far East.

“This is a turning point for the world. It’s a moment of choice. It is a choice between freedom and oppression.”

Putin’s troops have driven tens of millions of Ukrainians from their homes.

What is happening between Russia and Ukraine?

RUSSIA and Ukraine have been technically at war since 2014.

Ukraine was allied with Russia as part of the Soviet Union until its collapse in 1991, after which it became an independent state.

Both nations remained closely linked – but Ukraine gradually began to distance itself and seek deeper ties with the West.

The trigger for the open conflict was the Ukrainian revolution in 2014 – when an uprising toppled the pro-Russian government of Viktor Yanukovych.

Vladimir Putin’s troops responded by annexing the Crimea region from Ukraine – a move widely condemned in the West.

The conflict then escalated when pro-Russian groups in eastern Ukraine took up arms against the state.

Russia supported the separatist forces that formed breakaway republics in Donetsk and Luhansk.

Putin’s forces then launched a military incursion into those regions as they supported the rebels.

Russia continues to hold Crimea – and claims the region voluntarily joined them after a referendum.

It has now been almost seven years and the war in Donbass remains at a stalemate.

It is estimated that around 14,000 people were killed in the conflict, including more than 3,000 civilians.

Ukraine and the rebels signed a new ceasefire in July 2020 – but clashes have been steadily escalating since last November.

Alleged humanitarian corridors off flashed cities Kyiv, Kharkiv, Mariupol and Sumy were hit by Moscow missiles, Ukraine said.

And escape routes that led only to Russia or Putin-backed Belarus have been branded “immoral” by the United Nations.

But in the last humiliating blow to Putin, the deputy commander of him The Black Sea Fleet was killed yesterday.

Andrey Paliy became the sixth senior military officer Russia has lost since invading Ukraine.

After killing five army generals, Captain Andrey Paliy, 51, became the first senior naval officer to be killed in the war.

Konstantin Tsarenko, secretary of the public council of the Nakhimov Naval Academy in Sevastopol and a friend of Paliy, confirmed the officer’s death in a naval battle near Mariupol.

Born in Kyiv, Paliy refused to take the Ukrainian military oath in 1993 and instead served in Russia’s Northern Fleet.

He had previously served on the Russian nuclear-powered missile cruiser Peter the Great and as deputy chief of the Russian Naval Academy in Sevastopol annexed Crimea.

Another piece of bad news for Russia is a US general’s warning that its forces are running out of troops and ammunition and that they only have a week to conquer Ukraine.

Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, said the invaders were in trouble.

He stressed: “That is why they asked China for help and are now recruiting Syrians.

“Russian generals are running out of time, ammunition and manpower.”

He said Russia had already committed half of its total combat capability to the war, adding, “At the height of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, we were about 29 percent committed — and it was difficult to maintain that.”

He said that around 130,000 Russian families will have to send their sons aged 18 to 25 to conscription centers on April 1 in order to be drafted into the Russian army.

Lieutenant General Hodges said: “We should do everything we can to influence this next capture.

“If we could get some of these families to join those who are already showing the courage to protest, it would send shockwaves across Russia.”
