The former Russian President, now deputy chairman of Russia's Security Council, described it as a war to ‘stop the supreme ruler of Hell’.

Medvedev, who was president from 2008 to 2012, said Moscow was fighting "crazy Nazi drug addicts" in Ukraine.

He also said that Ukraine was backed by the west who he said had "saliva running down their chins from degeneracy".

He went on to speak about the power of Russia’s weapons, saying they had the power to "send all our enemies to fiery Gehenna”.

He also described Ukrainian weapons as "intricate lies”, before adding: “And our weapon is the truth. That is why our cause is right. That is why victory will be ours! Happy Holidays!"

It comes after a top Ukrainian official claimed that there are at least three body doubles who have undergone plastic surgery to look like the Russian president Putin.

Major General Kyrylo Budanov is the head of military intelligence for Ukraine, and spoke about the images of Putin that the West is used to seeing.
