The British Defence Secretary Grant Shapps said on Monday that Putin is “senselessly sending more Russians to die.”
Shapps wrote on X, “Putin is stepping up his invasion – senselessly sending more Russians to die than at any time since the war began.
“Ukrainian bravery and Western support is holding back their advance, but we cannot be complacent. Ukraine needs our unwavering support to fight & win.”
