image for Putin Had One Of His 'Strongest Public Outbursts' Since Invading Ukraine, Says British Intelligence

Russian President Vladimir Putin had one of his "strongest public outbursts" last month.

Vladimir Putin had one of his “strongest public outbursts” last month when he took aim at one of his own ministers over the Ukraine war, according to UK intelligence.

February 24 will mark the one-year anniversary since the brutal conflict began – and Russia is already preparing to launch a renewed offensive.

But, the UK’s ministry of defence has warned that Russia’s “military industrial output is becoming a critical weakness” – which Putin and other senior Russian leaders are “likely” to be aware of.

As the MoD claimed, Putin “castigated” the deputy prime minister Denis Manturov on January 12 in a televised meeting.

The Russian president allegedly told Manturov off for “fooling around” in what the MoD described as “one of the president’s strongest public outbursts since the invasion”.

“Production is almost certainly falling short of the Russian MoD’s demands to resource the Ukraine campaign and restore its longer-term defence requirements.”. »
