Russia vs Ukraine war: This will be Putin’s end – Ben Wallace

The Secretary of State for Defence of the United Kingdom, Ben Wallace, has said Russian President, Vladimir Putin, is a “spent force in the world” and the invasion of Ukraine will be his end”.

Wallace claimed Putin’s attack will fail because of the Ukranians’ fighting spirit and it is an “impossible task” to occupy such a large country.

According to him, “no one will be taking his phone calls in the long term”.

Wallace, however, admitted that the UK must be “realistic” about how it can help Ukraine, with ministers having to strike a “difficult balance” of offering support without triggering a wider NATO conflict with Russia.

Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly asked the West to enforce a no-fly zone.

But the UK has rejected the idea because it would pitch NATO fighter jets against Russian fighter jets.
