‘No mercy': Putin mouthpiece warns of 'concentration camps and sterilisation'

‘No mercy’: Putin’s mouthpiece has warned that Russian dissidents face ‘concentration camps and sterilisation’.

“Russian filmmaker Shakhnazarov has blasted Russian critics of President Vladimir Putin, warning detractors that there will be “no mercy”, as reported by The Express on Thursday, May 5.”

Russia is set to carry out a Victory Day parade next week in Red Square. Speaking on TV Shakhnazarov said: “The opponents of letter Z must understand that if they are counting on mercy, no.

“There will be no mercy for them.

“It all became very serious, in this case, it means concentration camps, re-education, sterilisation.

“This is very serious.”

Speculation started on Wednesday, May 4, that Putin could soon declare war against Ukraine and mobilise troops nationally on May 9. Russia’s onslaught against Ukraine so far has been called a “special military operation” rather than war by Russia.

Dmitry Peskov, spokesperson for the Kremlin commented on the speculation about a national mobilisation and said: “There is no chance of that. It’s nonsense.”

He went on to add: “It is not true. It is nonsense.”
