Putin holds up 'draft peace agreement' with Ukraine
Vladimir Putin has let it slip that the war in Ukraine is just that - a war.
The Russian leader has previously only called military action in the country a "special military operation" but speaking to the media last week he stopped that nonsense propaganda.
He used the word “war” not just once, but several times while warning the West that Russia may impose a “sanitary zone” in Ukraine to protect itself against attacks to Russia, according to Reuters news agency.
In doing so, he has even gone against propaganda laws in Russia which prohibit anyone from describing the Ukraine conflict as a war.
Spreading such “false information” could result in 15 years behind bars.
