    The body of a Russian deserter was left to rot in the middle of a snowy field after the soldier was shot dead by one of Vladimir Putin's men. Dmitry Perov, 31, was 'liquidated' by a Russian marksman today after he fled the front line in Ukraine in what is feared to be a warning to other mutineers not to desert ahead of another mass mobilisation of Russian troops. Perov, who fought in Putin's barbaric war in Ukraine before deciding to flee, left his military unit armed with an automatic weapon and ammunition and travelled 350 miles to Russia, Russian authorities claim. He was shot dead by a Russian soldier and his decaying body was seen lying face down in the middle of a snowy field in Novouglyanka, a village in southwestern Russia.

    The race to overthrow Vladimir Putin and grab his crown is underway, says Russian war analyst and former loyalist Igor Strelkov. 'The fight for the political Olympus has begun between the groupings that surround Putin,' he said. The battle to replace him is raging to the extent that 'even we can notice it'. Strelkov - a former FSB colonel key to Putin's annexation of Crimea and subjugation of the Donetsk region of Ukraine in 2014 - is now a staunch critic of the Kremlin's war strategy. 'The fight for the political Olympus has begun between the groupings that surround Putin,' he said Strelkov.

    Antidepressant sales in Russia have skyrocketed as the miserable reality of Putin's war in Ukraine finally dawns on the public, Western officials have said. Russians spent 70 per cent more on the pills in the first eight months of this year compared to last, even though they spent much of 2021 in Covid lockdowns, figures have shown. 'Russians feel frightened' as the 'catastrophic error' of Putin's invasion - including conscription and a tanking economy - begin to hit people's lives, the officials added. That is underlined by the fact that at least 400,000 have fled since Putin announced he would begin drafting people into the army in September, significantly more than the 300,000 he added to his ranks. Despite that, officials say there is no sign that Putin has decided to change course in Ukraine and no sign that anyone is preparing to replace him.  Russia is now into its ninth month of fighting in Ukraine and has failed to achieve any of the military objectives set by Putin at the start of the war. The Kremlin thought it...
    PUTIN is now summoning dead and disabled conscripts to fight in his shambolic war in Ukraine as mobilisation chaos deepens across Russia.

While Oleg Vasiliev, who suffers from spinal muscular atrophy and is unable to walk, was stunned when he was ordered to go to his nearest enlistment office.  Others called up include a foreign woman who was handed Russian citizenship just two years ago, a 63-year-old pensioner and a 16-year-old transplant patient.

    A Ukrainian conductor has been shot dead in his own home by Russian troops for refusing to take part in a concert in occupied territory, Kyiv has claimed. Yuriy Kerpatenko snubbed the Kremlin-backed concert 'intended by the occupiers to demonstrate the so-called 'improvement of peaceful life' in Kherson', the Ukrainian culture ministry said. The October 1 concert was scheduled to include a performance by the Gileya chamber orchestra.

It is believed Russian troops raided his village and executed him in cold blood.  RELATED ARTICLES ...
    Sinister raids by conscript-catchers have begun in Moscow and St Petersburg, even as Vladimir Putin announced his military mobilisation is coming to an end and he has no plans for further conscriptions. Speaking at a press conference in the Kazakh capital Astana, Putin said that the 'partial mobilisation' he announced last month, which the defence minister said aimed to recruit 300,000 soldiers, was finishing and would be over within two weeks.  'Nothing additional is planned. No proposals have been received from the defence ministry and I don't see any additional need in the foreseeable future,' Putin said of his on-going mobilisation. 'Now 222,000 people have been mobilised out of 300,000. Within about two weeks, all mobilisation activities will be completed.' The announcement comes as police and enlistment officers have been spotted lurking on street corners and near blocks of flats in Russian population centres.  And armed recruiters have even been cruising offices seeking men for mobilisation and in some cases enlistment teams are reportedly using facial recognition cameras to snare dodgers. 'They are acting like dog catchers. It's sickening how they...
    Queueing in their cars and wheeling suitcases along the road, photographs show Russians continuing to stream across the border into Georgia as they fear Putin's mobilisation, even as the despot today delivered a ranting annexation speech in Moscow.  Roads were jampacked full of traffic as people made a desperate dash for freedom at the Kazbegi border crossing in the Kazbegi municipality of Stepantsminda. Downcast Russians had packed their cars full of their belongings as they fled Putin's call-up for hundreds of thousands of men to fight in his invasion of Ukraine. The cars, which had Russian number plates, lined up near parking spots and on the road into Georgia.   Many appeared to have abandoned their vehicles or opted to flee on foot as they wheeled suitcases along the road.  Pictured: Masses of cars are seen queueing up on the Georgian border in the latest exodus of Russians from their country Russians are seen attempting to leave their country to avoid a military call-up for the Russia-Ukraine war as queues have formed at the Kazbegi border crossing (pictured) STEPANTSMINDA: Roads were...
    Finland is closing its borders to Russian tourists from midnight tonight after a huge influx of military aged men fled the country after Putin's mobilisation order. Passenger traffic on the border will be significantly limited, with Russian civilians on tourist visas no longer allowed to enter the Nordic country. Foreign minister Pekka Haavisto said: 'The decision in principle aims to completely prevent Russian tourism to Finland and the related transit through Finland.' The government justified its decision by saying that continued arrivals of Russian tourists in Finland is endangering the country's international relations without specifying further. Entry for family visits, as well as for work and studies, will still be permitted, he added.  Vehicles coming from Russia wait in lines at the Vaalimaa border check point between Finland and Russia in Virolahti Finnish border guards check the cars at the Vaalimaa border check yesterday amid the mass exodus Fearing the border may close 'forever' after the Russian President's mobilisation order for the war in Ukraine, Russians are rushing to flee across Finland's Vaalimaa border crossing Haavisto said the mobilisation order had...
    Newly-conscripted Russian men have bidden an emotional farewell to their tearful wives and families, possibly for the final time, as they head to the front lines of the war in Ukraine. Putin announced a partial mobilisation yesterday and vowed to use 'all available means' to deter future attacks, sending at least 300,000 reservists to battle in a dramatic escalation of his savage invasion. There are fears the conscription will see more civilian men of fighting age drafted into the brutal seven-month conflict, driving thousands to bid for freedom by buying one-way tickets to safety or trying to cross the border into neighbouring countries. Footage today shows groups of terrified men hugging their weeping partners and children before boarding buses taking them to war. But Britain's Ministry of Defence said it will take months for the new recruits to be fully prepared for war despite Putin's attempts to bolster his flagging campaign. Russia is also boosting its draft numbers by forcing those detained during mass protests yesterday to join the war effort, by handing them conscription papers while in the police...
    WHEN Vladimir Putin says he is not bluffing it is best to assume that he is. Putin claimed yesterday that the West was threatening Russia with nuclear weapons, insisting: “We have lots of weapons to reply — it is not a bluff.” 1Putin's latest outburst came as the Russian president announced a partial mobilisation of civilians in an attempt to change the course of his disastrous war with UkraineCredit: AFP It was an effort to paint Russia as the victim but I believe he would have had his fingers crossed as he said it. The outburst came as the Russian president announced a partial mobilisation of civilians in an attempt to change the course of his disastrous war with Ukraine. He’s losing on the battlefield, been humiliated internationally and he has now opened a Pandora’s Box for his people. The Russians have a reserve of two ­million people, most of whom have served in the military in the past five years.

    Desperate Russians are frantically trying to flee the country after Vladimir Putin announced a dramatic mobilisation. In the biggest escalation of the Ukraine war since the invasion, Putin explicitly raised the spectre of a nuclear conflict and called up 300,000 reservists in the country's first mobilisation since World War II. One-way flights out of Russia have skyrocketed and others have sold out as civilians scramble for a ticket to safety. Google data showed a family of three would have to fork out £44,000 to get to Johannesburg today in a 45-hour trip with three layovers. Direct flights from Moscow to Istanbul in Turkey and Yerevan in Armenia, both destinations that allow Russians to enter without a visa, were sold out today, according to Aviasales data, Russia's most popular flight purchasing website.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday announced a partial military mobilisation, Russian state-owned news agency TASS reported. 
    Vladimir Putin is set to declare 'all-out war' on Ukraine 'within days' to enable Russia to launch a general mobilisation of the population, according to Russian sources and Western officials. Russian troops entered Ukraine at the end of February in what Putin called a 'special military operation' to demilitarise and 'denazify' Ukraine and barred the use of the word 'war', thinking it would be over in a few weeks. However, army chiefs - frustrated that the invasion has now stretched into the third week - have called on the Russian president to declare war which would enable a mass mobilisation of Russian troops and an escalation in the conflict. Britain's Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said that the Russian president might use Russia's victory day parade on May 9 to announce the mass mobilisation of his reserves for a final push in Ukraine.  It comes as ex-Nato chief Richard Sherriff warned the West must 'gear itself up' for a 'worst case scenario' war with Russia in Ukraine.

    The UK has predicted that Vladimir Putin will use Russia's victory day parade on May 9 to announced the mass mobilisation of his population for a final push in Ukraine. Speaking on Friday, Britain's Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said that the Russian president might declare a new war against the world's 'Nazis' at the parade which sees Moscow mark the end of Russia's involvement in the Second World War. Putin launched his illegal invasion of Ukraine on February 24, calling it a 'special military operation' to 'de-nazify' Russia's neighbour - despite its president Volodymyr Zelensky being Jewish, and the far-right enjoying little support in the country. With Putin's military having failed in their first wave of military objectives, Moscow has re-focused its efforts on seizing both the east and southern coast of Ukraine. However, as in the first months of the invasion, Russian forces are being met with heavy Ukrainian resistance from Kyiv's determined armies. Some analysts had predicted that Putin wanted to be in a position where he could declare some form of victory on May 9. But with Russia's victory...
