The UK defense secretary has described a mobile Russian crematorium for use in any future conflict as “refrigeration”.
The Ministry of Defense has released video footage of the vehicle being seen following forces heading towards Ukraine.
Ben Wallace suggested that Russian forces invading Ukraine could use the incinerators to help conceal the number of casualties inflicted in any potential battle.
Calling it a “deep, profound” worry for any Russian military, he fears it could help cover up deaths should war break out.
I said walkie talkie : “In the past, they’ve deployed portable crematoriums to keep an eye on soldiers around the battlefield, which gives anyone in the books chills.
“If I were a soldier and knew that my generals had so little faith in me that they followed me across the battlefield with a portable crematorium, or I was the mother or father of a son, the possibility of being deployed into a combat zone, and my government, I think the way to cover the loss is a portable crematorium, I’m very concerned.
“It’s a very chilling side effect of how the Russians view their forces and for those of you who have served and are a soldier, knowing that trailing behind you is a way of vaporizing you. if you are killed in battle.
“It probably says everything you need to know about the Russian regime.”
The Defense Minister has suggested that Vladimir Putin has gone “comprehensive”, following the latest escalation in the Ukraine crisis.
He argued that the Russian President made the mistake of not having allies in his actions, comparing him to Tsar Nicholas I during the Crimean War.
Mr Wallace, a former Scots Guards officer, said his regiment “kicked in the back” of the tsar in Crimea and “we can always do it again”.
The unprotected comments came as the Cabinet Secretary chatted with military service personnel at the Horse Guards building in Westminster.
“It’s going to be a busy Army,” he said. Unfortunately, we have a busy opponent right now in Putin, who’s gone all out.
Mr Wallace said the UK had 1,000 staff on standby to respond to the crisis, adding: “The Scots Guard kicked Tsar Nicholas I in the back in 1853 in Crimea – we always could do it again.”
He continued: “Tsar Nicholas I made the same mistake Putin did … he had no friends, no alliances.”
The Defense Minister’s comments were made in a room highlighted by a large painting depicting the Battle of Inkerman, a major skirmish during the Crimean War.
Mr Wallace’s assessment of Mr Putin’s mental state came after Boris Johnson accused the Russian leader of “having illogical and irrational thinking”.
Former Nato secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen also suggested that Mr. Putin could be calm.
“I mean Russia’s behavior right now, it’s not logical, it’s not logical, so I don’t rule out that Putin has gone mad,” the former Danish prime minister told ITV’s Peston.
“And we’ve seen recently how he’s really humiliated his advisors, so I don’t think we’re going up against a man who’s thinking rationally.”
Earlier, Mr. Wallace told reporters that he was keeping the possibility of sending more weapons to Ukraine “under constant review”. To be.”
