PUTIN’S ATTACK DOG HIT IN ARSON ATTACK

One of Vladimir Putin’s main propagandists, who has advocated launching hypersonic Satan-2 missiles at Britain, was focused in an arson assault on Saturday.

An intruder broke into the environment of a villa owned by TV presenter Dmitry Kiselyov, 68, within the occupied peninsula of Crimea.

A Land Rover Freelander and a golf cart belonging to Kiselyov have been set alight and destroyed based on police, who suspect Ukrainian brokers or sympathisers.

Crimea was annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

The assault occurred at 2am on the plush bolthole in Koktebel, a preferred resort in southeast Crimea the place the TV pundit and government owns a vineyard and vacation residence.

Russian police within the occupied peninsula are investigating footage on CCTV cameras in a bid to determine the alleged attacker who evaded elaborate safety, say studies.

An picture confirmed a person in a hoodie and carrying a Covid masks.

The intruder fled moments later.

Footage of the assault was posted in Russia by impartial supply Ostorozhno Novosti.

The multi-millionaire pundit Kiselyov – reportedly avidly watched by Putin – is keen on threatening to show the West into “radioactive ashes”.

It is unclear if he was in residence on the time of the assault.

In 2013, Kiselyov was appointed by Putin to move Rossiya Segodnya, the Russian state-controlled media group.

He additionally serves as deputy director of the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company.

His sprawling residence in Crimea has been highlighted by Maria Zakharova, outstanding spokeswoman for Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Excited by the war in Ukraine, Kiselyov has urged Putin to go additional and drown Britain out of existence beneath a nuclear tidal wave.

He advised viewers: “Another option is to plunge Britain into the depths of the sea is the Russian underwater robotic drone Poseidon.

“It approaches the target at a one kilometre depth with the speed of 200 kilometres per hour [125mph].

“There is NO way to stop this underwater drone.

“It has a warhead with a capacity of up to 100 megatons.

“The explosion of this thermonuclear torpedo close to Britain’s shores will raise a giant wave, a tsunami, up to 500 metres [1,640ft] high.

“This tidal wave is also a carrier of extremely high doses of radiation.

“Surging over Britain, it will turn what is probably left of them into radioactive desert.

“Permanently unusable for anything.

“How do you like this prospect? And Putin warned about this, back on February 24 [if anyone interfered with his special military operation].”

The Sarmat hypersonic 208-ton ’Satan-2’ intercontinental ballistic missile has a speed of 15,880mph and is claimed by the Kremlin leader to be “unstoppable.”

It is due to be deployed in the autumn.

The Poseidon – being readied for service – is described as a giant nuclear-capable torpedo.

Details of its high-speed 125 mph underwater propulsion system of the atomic powered underwater drone are regarded as top secret.

Putin has boasted that it has an “unlimited range”, and said three years ago: “Work is going according to plan.”

Kiselyov studied at the same Leningrad State University attended by Putin.

‘And depending on the extent of what they do will determine what response would occur.’ 

In the wake of the Russian retreat, Ukrainain forces have liberated dozens of towns and villages, including the strategic hub of Izium, where bodies have been unearthed at a mass burial site.

At least ten torture chambers were discovered in the Kharkiv region, with 500 bodies found in the mass grave. 

Ukraine’s police chief Igor Klymenko said that two torture centres were found in Balaklya, a town in the northeast of the Kharkiv region. 

The head of a pro-Russian administration pushed out by the counteroffensive, Vitaly Ganchev, accused Ukrainians of staging atrocities in the city of Izium.

The accusation follows the Kremlin’s usual playbook of claiming it has been framed over atrocities allegedly committed by its own forces. 

Klymenko said today that most of the people buried in the mass graves are civilians, with some of the graves marked only with numbers. Other graves bear military symbols, suggesting that soldiers are buried there. 

It is not yet clear how the people died, but the Ukrainians say some were likely killed fighting while others may have been caught in shelling and died from their wounds.

United Nations human rights monitors will go to Izium ‘to try to establish a bit more about what may have happened’, a spokesperson said. 

Zelensky said the dead included both children and adults, civilians and military.

‘Tortured, shot, killed by shelling. Even entire families are buried there: Mother, father and daughter,’ Mr Zelensky said.

Asked if the mass grave contained mainly civilians or soldiers, Klymenko told a news conference: ‘On a preliminary estimate, civilians. Although we have information that there are troops there, we haven’t recovered a single one yet.’

Police have begun exhuming the site to gather evidence of potential war crimes and Klymenko said authorities had opened 204 criminal cases probing the atrocities. 

Prosecutors have so-far uncovered Russian torture chambers and dug up graves of civilians whose bodies show signs of summary execution and have been mutilated. People have also told stories of being electrocuted during interrogation sessions, of rapes, forced disappearances, arbitrary detention and other horrors.

The head of the prosecutor’s office in the Ukrainian region of Kharkiv said that some of the bodies unearthed from the mass burial site showed signs of torture, with some buried with their hands tied behind their backs or ropes around their necks. 

Izium resident Sergei Gorodko said that among the hundreds buried in the individual graves were dozens of adults and children killed in a Russian airstrike on an apartment building. He said he pulled some of them out of the rubble ‘with my own hands’. 

Zelensky hinted at war crimes when he compared Izium to Mariupol and Bucha, two cities where Russia has systematically exterminated civilians in what has been described as crimes against humanity. 

‘We want the world to know what is really happening and what the Russian occupation has led to. Bucha, Mariupol, now, unfortunately, Izyum,’ he said. ‘Russia leaves death everywhere. And it must be held accountable.’

The chief police investigator for the region of Kharkiv, Serhii Bolvinov, has said that the bodies will be exhumed and taken away for forensic examination.

It is part of a huge police effort in which the officers are working with prosecutors and other investigators on uncovering atrocities.

Ukrainian MP Lesia Vasylenko said the recapture of Izium was a ‘huge strategic gain’, militarily speaking.

‘Ukraine is making confident advances in the north-east and the south-east of the country as well,’ she told Sky News.

‘We are making progress for our sake, but also for the sake of bringing back long-standing peace to the continent.’

Asked what she thought Mr Putin might do next, she said: ‘Nobody can be in the mind of that power-crazed leader.’

She added: ‘Whatever it is, we have to be prepared for it – we have to be prepared for it as Ukrainians, you have to be prepared for it in the UK.

‘And actually, people worldwide need to be prepared that something absolutely atrocious, another crazy move, can happen any time.

‘For that, Ukrainians need to have the weapons to protect themselves, the ammunition in the necessary amount to protect themselves.

‘And the West needs to be prepared to apply every sanction that there is in the book against Russia.’

Western sanctions are beginning to damage Russia’s skill to make superior weaponry for the war in Ukraine, a prime NATO army adviser mentioned, although he mentioned Russia may nonetheless manufacture ‘quite a lot of ammunition’.
