How Putin’s ‘legendary’ paratroopers have been obliterated

VLADIMIR Putin’s elite paratroopers have faced massacre on the battlefield amid Russia’s bungled invasion of Ukraine, experts have claimed.

The tyrant unleashed his “legendary” elite forces into Ukraine three weeks ago – believing he could seize control of Kyiv within 48 hours.

But far from capitulating, Ukraine’s hero defenders have crushed Russia’s invading forces – forcing a raging Putin to resort to the merciless bombing of civilians.

Taras Kuzio, an Associate Research Fellow at the Henry Jackson Society, says dozens of Russian paratroopers were killed in their doomed bid to take Hostomel airport.

“They (the paratroopers) are sent ahead of the main troops to secure a location so that the main forces can be brought up,” he told The Sun Online.

“In this war, they were flown into Hostomel airport near Kyiv to do this but were all killed.

“Two transport aircraft of paratroopers flying from Belarus to do the same tactic at another airport near Kyiv were shot out of the sky. 300 paratroopers were killed in the 2-transport aircraft.”

The swift takedown of Putin’s paratroopers bungled the initial part of Putin’s invasion, said Kuzio.
