Putin shows off ‘captured’ Western war spoils from Ukraine included bullet-riddled Brit truck & US Humvees | The Sun

SHAMELESS Vladimir Putin has flaunted weapons claimed to be seized in Ukraine during his barbaric invasion.

The twisted tyrant is attempting to flex his military muscle at the West by showcasing more than 800 weapons and pieces of war equipment.

Images from the exhibition at Patriot Park in Kubinka show bullet-riddled trucks from the UK as well as US Humvees.

Tanks made in Sweden and what Russia claims to be captured US assault rifles are also on display.

Putin's pal and defence minister Sergey Shoigu, who opened the exhibition, said Ukraine's ability to fight had been "almost exhausted".

He also claimed that the illegal war had exposed vulnerabilities in Western weapon systems.

Shoigu said: "In the special military operation, the Russian army has debunked many myths about the superiority of Western military standards.

"The preliminary results of combat operations show that Ukraine's military resources are almost exhausted."

Shoigu, one of Putin's most powerful allies, failed to give any evidence to back him his statement, however.

But he claimed to have details on the "weakness" of Western weapons.

Shoigu added: "We have data on the destruction of German tanks, American armoured vehicles, British missiles and other weapons systems."

Images from the exhibition show – which opened on Monday – visitors looking and weapons – and even holding them.

Despite opening all previous displays, Putin this year dodged it and instead appeared via a video link.

He declared that Russia was “open to deepening” military-technical partnerships with other countries.

Shoigu instead took the lead – accompanied by the Belarusian defence minister Viktor Khrenin – as he welcomed delegations of defence departments from other countries.

Iran is among countries with a stand at the show showing off their weapons.

Patriot Park – where the exhibition is being held until Sunday – has previously been likened to a "military Disneyland".

Opened in 2016, it showcases the equipment of the Russian military and the Soviet Union's victory in World War II.
