Putin ‘threw the cream of the crop’ straight ‘into the meat grinder’ but claims ‘we haven’t even yet started anything in earnest’
Putin’s motorcade attacked with explosives and ‘loud bang sounded from the left front wheel’ with ‘heavy smoke’ seen, sadly he was not killed
Putin’s elite unit has been ‘severely degraded’ because they were ‘hesitant and amateurish’ and totally ‘useless’ in the battle of Kharkiv
He told Express.co.uk that such a large number of civilians being killled wouldn’t surprise him as Russians have executed Ukrainians “left and right” for being what they claim to be “spies” for the Ukrainian forces.
Savchuk said, “There hasn’t been a single place where I didn’t hear that there was rape going on, that there was robbery going on.”
He added: “What would stop them from doing that? Are there police or some board that would say ‘Oh you can’t rape the women’ – obviously not.
“That’s exactly why you see people running towards the Ukrainian military with tears in their eyes.
“If people were treated well, you wouldn’t see this reaction. Why on earth would a person run towards a tank with tears in his eyes?
“It’s because he saw up close these horrible things before Izyum was liberated.”
