VLADIMIR Putin’s main goal is to “destroy Ukraine” and exact revenge on the nation’s brave leader, an exiled Ooigrach has claimed.
On Sunday, the unhinged Russian dictator signed a new naval doctrine that sets an agenda for crucial areas like the Arctic and the Black Sea amid his brutal war in Ukraine.
And former oil baron Leonid Nevzlin – who was forced to flee Russia two decades ago – believes Putin’s plan was initially to annex the country – but now everything has changed.
Speaking to The Times of Israel, Mr Nevzlin warned: “Putin is trying to destroy Ukraine.
“We understand it from this intolerable violence and the horrific nature of this war. He destroys Russian-speaking cities, he destroys people.
“It’s his way of taking revenge – on Ukraine and on Zelenskyy.”
It comes as President Zelenskyy warned citizens remaining in Russian-controlled Donetsk to evacuate the besieged area.
During his nightly address, the hero leader warned: “The more people are now leaving the Donetsk region, the fewer people the Russian army will have time to kill.
“We will use all available means to save as many lives as possible and contain Russian terror as much as possible.”
