Ukraine mayor and boxing champion Vitali Klitschko rejects German ‘joke’ offer of 5,000 HELP in the face of Russian onslaught

The mayor of Kiev has called Germany’s supply of 5,000 helmets to Ukraine a “joke”.

Former boxer politician Vitali Klitschko teased the offer, asking if the nation wanted to send pillows as a replacement.

The mayor said the offer left him'speechless'

He said the offer to wear the helmet left him “speechless”.

He told Bild: “Five thousand helmets is an absolute joke.

“What will Germany send next? Pillow?”

The mayor also said Germany did not understand “that we are dealing with a highly equipped Russian army that could start invading Ukraine at any moment”.

The Czech government agrees to provide Ukraine with 4,000 artillery shells as the country prepares to face Putin’s forces.

Ukraine is on the verge of an all-out war with Russia as 120,000 troops land on the border and the world is waiting with rapid breathing.

Meanwhile, Britain is urging its NATO allies to stand up to Russian bullies and flood Ukraine with weapons – not helmets or pillows – and support sanctions.

Defense Minister Ben Wallace will share intelligence on the extent of President Putin’s war planning with Dutch and German defense officials to help strengthen their resolve.

Mr Johnson said the UK and its allies would respond quickly and “unanimously” to any invasion and with severe economic sanctions.

He added: “The British military leads the NATO combat group in Estonia and if Russia invades Ukraine we will contribute to any NATO deployment to protect our allies in Europe. .”

They are unlikely to become belligerents but the ministers refuse to rule anything out.

Members of the Nato alliance – which includes Denmark, Spain, Bulgaria and the Netherlands – are sending more fighter jets and warships to Eastern Europe to bolster defenses in the region.

The US has also placed 8,500 troops on alert for short-term deployment, which Russia says has caused “great concern”.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that Germany supports Ukraine and links with other NATO countries, but has so far been reluctant to send weapons.

It is thought this could be due to Russia’s dependence on gas – as well as the country’s military past.

Ukraine is facing the wrath of Putin
