British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace believes that the Russian command, like Russian President Vladimir Putin, is responsible for war crimes during a large-scale invasion of Ukraine, which can be compared with the actions of the Nazi regime during the Second World War.

This is reported by Radio Liberty with reference to Wallace’s speech at the National Army Museum in London, excerpts from which are quoted by the British media.

Wallace stressed that the Russian president and command will face the same fate as the Nazis, who were defeated and brought before the Nuremberg Tribunal.

“By invading Ukraine, Putin, his entourage and generals are copying fascism, tyranny more than 70 years ago, repeating the mistakes of the totalitarian regimes of the last century,” the British minister said. “Their fate will ultimately be the same.”

According to Wallace, Putin “stole” the history of the struggle of the Russian people against Nazism for his own political purposes. “All professional military men should be outraged by the behavior of the Russian army,” the British minister stressed.

Many Western leaders in their speeches on the victory over Nazism this year recall the war in Ukraine, drawing direct and indirect parallels between the actions of Nazi Germany in World War II and Russia now.
