As with most wars, there is no shortage of propaganda, but one Russian defence columnist has gone on national TV to give his damning assessment of the war in Ukraine.

Aired on Twitter with English subtitles, Mikhail Khodarynok, says that the stories carried by state TV are false. He says that Ukraine is able to do something Russia can’t and that is to mobilise a million soldiers, which when equipped as they now are by the West have become a formidable force.

His damning assessment gives credibility to the claims by Ukraine that they will win the war in the end.
