‘Cancer-stricken’ Putin HUMILIATED as planned ‘victory over Ukraine’ parade is gutted by a third after massive losses
MAD VLAD’s so-called “victory over Ukraine parade” is set to be a sorry sight after the Russian tyrant is forced to scale it down by a THIRD, figures show.
The Russian president – who is rumoured to be “Cancer stricken” – will face public humiliation as he rolls out his massively depleted military stock on May 9 following horrendous losses in Ukraine.
The parade – held every year to commemorate the surrender of Nazi Germany in World War II – has been used by Russian leaders to flaunt their strength and demonstrate Russia’s military prowess.
But this year the show is 35-percent smaller, forcing Mad Vlad to dust down creaky equipment from the 1960s in a desperate effort to save face on Moscow’s Red Square.
This will come as a massive blow to the tyrant who is understood to have set the May 9 date to declare some form of victory over Ukraine – whatever that may be.
But the invasion has been far from successful after facing massive resistance from hero Ukrainian fighters – forcing Putin’s butchers to retreat and focus their operations in the eastern Donbas region.
The parade is therefore set to be a major humiliation, as it is revealed that the number of Russian Infantry Fighting Vehicles participating in the parade has been slashed by a whopping 50-percent.
Parade guides also show that only 25 Russian ground combat systems will be represented by 131 ground combat vehicles, Forbes reported.
This is marked difference from the 198 combat vehicles from 35 separate systems rolled out in the 2021 parade.
After losing at least 114 T-80 main battle tanks of various colours, Russia’s military is now apparently unable to find just ten display-ready T-80’s for this year’s parade.
This follows confirmed losses of at least 600 tanks since Russia invaded Ukraine.
And the figures get worse, as only three BMP-3 Infantry Fighting Vehicles will be on parade – down from six last year.
And while Putin boasted 23 helicopters at the 2021 parade, he can only muster 15 for May 9.
The humiliation deepens as it is revealed that 10 Sukhoi Su-30 and Su-34 jets showed off in 2021 won’t even make an appearance.
Artillery and multiple rocket launch systems have mostly disappeared from this year’s parade.
Instead they are represented by a single class of 152 mm self-propelled howitzer and an “updated” version of the old 122mm Grad multiple rocket launcher.
This is a battlefield system that was cutting edge back in the 1960’s.
The blatantly obvious holes in the parade will be an unwelcome reminder for Putin of Russia’s military shortcomings.
The parade will be an opportunity for the world to take a good look at the tyrant after rumours allege he is gravely ill.
Putin has appeared puffy and fat in recent appearances, fanning the flames of speculation he may have Cancer.
These rumours then rocketed after the popular Russian Telegram channel General SVR claimed claimed Mad Vlad is due to have treatment for the life-threatening disease.
The channel even claims surgery might incapacitate him for “a short time” and that during this period the tyrant may be forced to briefly hand over power to an aide.
There has been no official confirmation regarding Putin’s alleged ill health and the Kremlin has not commented on the reports, either to confirm or deny them.
But a recent video showing the 69-year-old shaking uncontrollably has fuelled speculation he’s not well at all.
Another clip also appeared to show the Russian leader gripping a table and tapping his foot – signs body language experts believe indicate he could be suffering from Parkinson’s, dementia or cancer.
