CRAZED VLADIMIR Putin watched on as his Russian forces launched a barrage of ballistic and cruise missiles in the “Operation Thunder” exercises.

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said the drills were intended to simulate a massive nuclear strike by Russia in retaliation for a nuclear attack on its soil.

The Kremlin said that all tasks set for the exercise were fulfilled and all the missiles that were test-fired reached their designated targets.

It comes as Russian forces are digging in for the “heaviest of battles” in occupied territory as the Kremlin looks to defend the largest city under its control in Ukraine.
