All Out War

According to Russian sources and Western officials, Vladimir Putin is poised to declare “all-out war” on Ukraine “within days” in retaliation for humiliating military losses.

We already know that there is a war in Ukraine, which has resulted in tens of thousands of deaths and the slaughter of innocent civilians.

Throughout this time, however, Moscow has prohibited its media from using the term “war,” insisting that it is a “special military operation” to demilitarize and “denazify” Ukraine.

As the invasion enters its third month, army chiefs have urged Putin to declare war, implying that things could get worse for Russia’s neighbor.

This would allow for a mass mobilization of the population, which would result in reservists being called up and conscripts being kept beyond their one-year term.

Putin would also be able to announce martial law, which would allow Russia’s borders to be closed and large portions of the economy to be nationalized.

Former NATO Secretary-General Richard Sherriff has warned that the West must “gear up” for a “worst-case scenario” with Russia.

‘The worst-case scenario is war with Russia,’ he told BBC Radio 4. By preparing for the worst-case scenario, it is more likely to deter Putin because, in the end, Putin respects strength.’

According to a Russian military source, the top brass is ‘outraged that the blitz on Kyiv has failed.’

‘Army personnel is seeking retribution for past failures, and they want to go further in Ukraine,’ they added.

According to UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace, Putin could use Russia’s Victory Day Parade on May 9 to announce a massive troop mobilization to its neighbor.

‘He is likely to declare…that we are now at war with the world’s Nazis and that we need to mass mobilize the Russian people,’ he added.

Some analysts believe Putin wanted to be in a position to declare victory on May 9 – the anniversary of Germany’s defeat in World War II.

However, this appears increasingly unlikely, which is why some officials fear the tyrant will escalate the situation.

After failing to take the capital, Putin’s forces began withdrawing from the Kyiv area in late March.

They left horrifying evidence of war crimes in the form of hundreds of bodies found lining the streets and piled in mass graves in nearby towns like Irpin and Bucha.

Russia announced its withdrawal to focus its efforts on the country’s south and east, as well as to ‘liberate’ the Donbas region held by pro-Moscow militia.

However, it has continued to launch airstrikes on Kyiv, including during a visit by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Putin threatened to use nuclear weapons earlier this week, following Russia’s announcement of plans to deploy the terrifyingly powerful Satan II missile by autumn.

Wallace, however, insisted that Britain does not feel ‘rattled,’ telling LBC: ‘We are part of a Nato partnership of 30 nations who outgun him, outnumber him, and potentially have all the capabilities at our disposal.’

‘I don’t fear him, and I believe we should be grateful in this country to have a nuclear deterrent.’
