VLADIMIR Putin is “facing ruin” if Russia’s new major military offensive fails according to a Ukrainian spy chief.
However, the deputy head of Ukraine’s military intelligence, Vadym Skibitsky, told news site Delfi: “If the major Russian offensive planned for this time fails, it will be the ruin of Russia and Putin.”

The Armed Forces of Ukraine said today: “For half an hour of anti-aircraft combat from 00:00 to 00:30 on January 24, units of the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed three Russian Ka-52 attack helicopters in the eastern direction.”
