Vladimir Putin may be “encouraged” by the lack of opposition to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

Vladimir Putin turned red in the face after Russian soldiers allegedly blew themselves up trying to plant anti-tank mines dating back to the 1950s.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry has openly mocked Russian forces after obsolete ammunition was discovered in a military convoy arriving in the occupied Kherson region.

A Canadian volunteer currently fighting alongside Ukraine in Kherson shared the update on Twitter. He wrote: “In the Kherson region, the Russians are reinforcing their positions with anti-personnel and anti-tank mines manufactured in the 1950s. As a result, several cases of Russian sappers detonating themselves while attempting to place said mines have been reported.”

The number of victims as a result of this “friendly fire” is unclear, as Russia has not yet recognized the incident. reports the Express.

Earlier Thursday, it was reported that Putin could march troops to “weak” Europe if he is successful in Ukraine, as a new target has been named.

Olga Lautman, senior fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis, said the West must act now to ensure an “emboldened” Putin does not fulfill his mission.

She told The Sun: “Russia’s appetite will not stop. We saw it and we saw that negotiating with them doesn’t work. Their word is worth nothing, they must be contained because if they are not, the threat they pose will be far greater than that of Ukraine.

“If Ukraine tries to end the war, Russia will never stop and Russia will march through Europe. Because the less resistance they have, the more encouraged they are for her.”

Lautman’s warning comes as a Russian politician introduces a bill that would revoke recognition of Lithuania’s 1991 Declaration of Independence.

If a majority of Russian lawmakers vote in favour, Russia will no longer recognize that Lithuania legally left the Soviet Union.

Lautman added, “If you ignore or try to negotiate, the negotiations in Russia’s head are just a way to look for weaknesses in their opponents so they can use them as pressure points.”
