Tens of thousands of Russian troops in an eight mile convoy are moving in to eastern Ukraine and are expecting ‘big battles’
The steel plant was badly damaged by the shelling from Russian forces and Basurin said that there are up to 4,000 nationalists and hinted that they are planning on using chemical weapons as there is no point in storming the underground fortifications.
Russian state television quoted him as saying, “When capturing Azovstal in Mariupol, you need to act more cunningly in order to avoid losses, because of the underground floors.
“It is pointless to storm the object.”
He also mentioned plans to find and blockade all the exits and entrances to the steel plant.
He added: “It is possible to accomplish.
“The chemical troops, I believe, will then find a means to smoke moles out of their holes.”
Vladimir Putin has been accused of using lethal chemical weapons in the besieged city of Mariupol and if it turns out to be truss then NATO will “respond” and could put boots on the ground in Ukraine.
The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) have thus far been unable to confirm reports, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss are scrambling to verify all the facts surrounding the claim.
The Azov Battalion who are fighting with Ukrainian forces, claimed three of their soldiers were showing signs of chemical poisoning after a Russian drone had dropped an unknown substance.
The battalion has not put forward any evidence at the moment, but the authorities are waiting for more information.
US President Joe Biden has warned that NATO “would respond” to a chemical attack in Ukraine and he warned that Putin will pay a “severe price.”
