Wallace claims that Putin’s Russia “reflects the fascism and tyranny” of the Nazis


Vladimir Putin’s regime “mirrors” Nazi actions, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace will say, while the Russian leader holds a military parade to celebrate defeating Hitler’s fascists.

Mr Wallace will say in a major speech that Mr Putin and his inner circle should share the same fate as the Nazis who were defeated in the end and faced the Nuremberg Trials for their atrocities.

In Moscow, Mr Putin will watch the Victory Parade with military gear marking the Nazi defeat in 1945.

But according to excerpts shared with the Telegraph and Times, Mr Wallace will say: “By invading Ukraine, Putin, his inner circle and his generals are now mirroring the fascism and tyranny of 70 years ago and repeating the mistakes of the totalitarian regimes of the last century.”

He will add: “Their destiny must surely be the same as well.”

Russia’s past casualties should not be forgotten, “but neither should the lessons of what awaits the perpetrators of such unprovoked brutality.”

Their unprovoked and illegal invasion of Ukraine, attacks on innocent citizens and their homes, and widespread atrocities – including deliberately against women and children – are corrupting memories of past victims and Russia’s once-proud global reputation

In a message to Mr Putin, he will say: “By going so far as to justify this war of choice, he and his generals are now tearing apart both Russia’s past and future.

“Their unprovoked and illegal invasion of Ukraine, attacks on innocent citizens and their homes, and widespread atrocities – including deliberately against women and children – corrupt memories of past victims and Russia’s once-proud global reputation.”

The defense secretary’s speech at the National Army Museum in London will also directly criticize the war crimes behavior of Russian commanders and their incompetence in a campaign that has not produced the gains Mr Putin expected.

The generals in their “neat parade uniforms” are “absolutely complicit in Putin’s kidnapping of the proud history of their ancestors” of resistance against fascism.

“All professional soldiers should be appalled at the behavior of the Russian army,” Mr. Wallace will say.

“Not only are they involved in an illegal invasion and war crimes, but their top brass have failed their own base to the point that they should be court-martialed.”

He will say that enlisted men in the Russian army “will not have a voice and their mothers and sisters will be silenced.”

Mr Wallace’s speech comes after Secretary of State Liz Truss accused Russia of war crimes over the bombing of a school in eastern Ukraine where civilians were taking shelter.

Up to 60 people are feared dead after a school in Bilohorivka in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine was bombed and set on fire on Saturday.

The foreign minister said she was “appalled,” adding that Putin’s regime will be held accountable.

About 90 people were believed to have taken shelter at the school, but only 30 were rescued.

Ms Truss tweeted: “Appalled by the recent Russian attack on a school in Luhansk which resulted in the deaths of innocent people sheltering from the Russian bombardment.”

She said that targeting civilians and infrastructure “comprises war crimes” and “we will ensure that Putin’s regime is held accountable.”

G7 leaders including Boris Johnson and Joe Biden held talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Sunday.

Mr Johnson told his colleagues “the world must go further and faster to support Ukraine” against the Kremlin’s invading forces.

A Downing Street spokeswoman said: “The Prime Minister said it was wildly ironic that leaders had gathered to discuss Putin’s barbaric invasion on a day when they were supposed to remember the sacrifice of Russian soldiers who defeated fascism defeated in World War II.

“He agreed with G7 leaders that the world needs to step up economic pressure on Putin in every possible way, and said the West must not allow the war to become a stalemate that will only add to the suffering.” enlarged.

“Ukraine needed military equipment that would allow it not only to gain a foothold in Ukraine, but to take it back, the prime minister told leaders.”

The G7 agreed that more needs to be done to support Ukraine’s agricultural exports as the war affects food supplies around the world.

Mr Johnson also called on the G7 countries to step up diplomatic lobbying by countries that are not pressuring Moscow, “particularly when it was clear that grossly unjustified human rights abuses and war crimes were being committed,” the spokeswoman added.

US officials claimed two major Russian tank factories have ground to a halt because of the impact of economic sanctions.

The UK has pledged an additional £1.3 billion in military aid to Ukraine in a dramatic escalation of aid to Mr Zelenskyy’s forces fighting the Russian invasion.

It is the highest rate of British military spending on a conflict since the height of the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. Wallace claims that Putin’s Russia “reflects the fascism and tyranny” of the Nazis
