INCREDIBLE footage of the moment pro-Russian troops mutiny on camera and condemn Vladimir Putin for their treatment.
Soldiers claiming to be from the 113th Rifle Regiment of the Donetsk People’s Republic can be heard beating Putin for sending them into battle “without food or equipment”.
Their commander also makes the harrowing claim that men with young children and others with chronic illnesses were sent into the thick of battle.
He says: “Our company, consisting of the 5th Infantry Battalion of the 113th Infantry Regiment, was on the front line in the Kherson region of Ukraine.
“For that time, the staff overcame cold and hunger, and we did so without material support, medical supplies, or food for a considerable period of time.
“Our unit was mobilized without medical examinations, and there are people in our unit who, according to the laws of the Donetsk People’s Republic, should not be mobilized.
“There are members of our staff who have chronic illnesses and others who care for people with mental illnesses.
“For those who are fathers of children, and considering the length of our continued presence on the front lines, there are many questions that the command is ignoring.”
He then speaks separately to troops, who voice their concerns but say they are being ignored by their commanders.
“The high command interprets our complaints as sabotage,” he says.
“Show your officers respect. What do you get from sending your soldiers to their deaths?”
The comments come as Ukrainian figures suggest the Russian leader has already sent 30,000 troops to their deaths but is continuing to press ahead with the Shambolic invasion in hopes of a “small victory” on the Eastern Front.
A bombshell report released on Monday said the dictator, believed to be plagued by disease, could be called upon to sacrifice his own army in a hollow victory to save face.
However, many have warned that Putin’s blood sacrifice may be a step too far given the growing evidence of distrust within his ranks.
The report’s author, a leading British Russia analyst, claims that Putin has convinced himself that victory in Donbass is now on the horizon – and that he will press him in the battle for Kyiv.
And if he fails in his quest for a small victory, his downfall with a Putin now is a realistic possibility.
The army is said to be on the brink of collapse after losing thousands of soldiers to fierce Ukrainian resistance.
The chaotic invasion has inflicted devastating casualties on Russia – and Putin has been warned to return his troops home or “risk more orphans”.
A veteran lawmaker last week appealed to the Russian leader to bring back his troops amid mounting Russian protests against the war.
Communist MP Leonid Vasyukevich, 69, spoke against the deployment of Russian soldiers in Ukraine during a regional assembly in Primorsky Krai.
He said: “We support measures to support families of soldiers killed during the special military operation.
“We understand that if our country does not stop the special military operation, there will be more orphans.
“Young men die and are maimed during surgery when they could have benefited our country.”
The courageous local MP said three months had passed since the start of the war “and it is clearly impossible to achieve success through military means”.
He said that if Putin continues with this “it will inevitably lead to an increase in the number of soldiers killed and wounded” and called for the “immediate withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine”.
British Russia commentator Bruce Jones told The Mirror: “There has to come a point at which Russian forces can no longer take casualties, a borderline point.
“This would be a straw that broke the camel’s moment where units could no longer function as a combat force because they are so exhausted.
“It’s happened before and on a small scale it’s happening now – so this could become a reality.”
