Putin ‘throwing troops into meat grinder’ as Zelenskyy brands him a ‘nobody’

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zlenskyy has called Mad Vlad Putin a “nobody” who is lobbing his troops into a “meat grinder”.

Speaking to Sky News, Zelenskyy said he had little interest in talking to the Russian despot, adding: “We see their attacks are stronger there may be a couple of surges. The east is losing a lot of people.

"They don’t care about that. We count their losses. 1,000s of soldiers – they just throw them into the meat grinder.”

In the interview, Zelenskyy admitted that Russian attacks had been gaining in strength and discussed how crucial it was that Ukrainian forces defended robustly.

"It all depends on how much we can hold them back… In the east they are moving forward and losing a lot of people. It's just an extraordinary number.

"They don't care about it. I mean, they don't count their people. This is a fact.

"We are counting their people. But we don't have exact numbers. There are much more casualties from their side.

"But from what we have already seen and counted, there are thousands of people dead from their side, and they are just throwing them, and throwing them, and throwing them and throwing them."

Elsewhere, Zelenskyy said he was confused by the action of Russia, claiming it was unclear who was calling the shots and drawing attention to the country’s confusing policy of talking about peace and then firing missiles in the same direction.

A question was raised to Zelenskyy about his interest in meeting with plonker Putin in order to try and end the fighting, to which the Ukrainian leader said: "It is not interesting for me. Not interesting to meet, not interesting to speak… I really don't understand who makes decisions in Russia."

Zelenskyy was keen to ensure that people were protected from the fighting and added he had no interest in fighting across the boarder.

"I don't want to fight on Russian territory," he said.

"I just want them to stop the war as quickly as possible, and leave our country as fast as possible.

"I can tell you for sure if they leave our territory, the war will stop. That's all."

But the way to this, for him, wasn’t through a sit-down with Putin.

"After a full-scale invasion, for me [Putin] is nobody."
