Russian troops can be seen entering and looting a Ukrainian home in new footage shared online. The footage was shared by the Twitter channel Visegrad24 along with the explanation: “New video shows Russian soldiers entering Ukrainian houses, looting whatever they can. This is a speciality of the Russian Army and has been for centuries. Ukrainians won’t forget and they will take back what is theirs, one way or another.”

The video captures a squad of Russian soldiers entering an abandoned house.

Seemingly unaware they are being recorded the men proceed to pick through the belongings scattered around the home.

One of the soldiers helps himself to a pair of sunglasses.

The men can be seen taking loot to a trailer which they brought along. 

Meanwhile, Ukraine stands ready to trigger Russian “military collapse” in the New Year if NATO commits to provide extra weapons and ammunition, according to the UK’s former defence chief.

Lord Dannatt told Sky News: ” We have to think through very carefully how much more military equipment we’re going to give to Ukraine.

“Because we know that the Russians have mobilised some 300,000 additional soldiers and they will b be giving them some training probably in preparation for an offensive in the spring.

“But here’s the big question is the West and the United States, in particular, going to go on supplying sophisticated weapons and equipment and ammunition to Ukraine so that they can mount a major offensive in the spring?

Ukraine: Russian morale is 'shaky' says Shirreff

“There is a view which I have some sympathy with, that if the Ukrainians are able to mount a really bold counter-offensive in the spring, it may be sufficiently effective that it could destroy the Russian army’s morale and bring about a collapse in the Russian military. “

He continued: “That might be wishful thinking, but it’s a big issue for the West.

“Do they go on supplying Ukraine with all the weaponry, equipment, and ammunition that they need?

“To be able to mount a big counter-offensive in the spring? I certainly hope so.”

Retired US commander Mark Hertling believes Ukraine is “holding the upper hand” against Russia in terms of fighting in winter. 

Mr Hertling told CNN: “The weather plays an equal part on both sides truthfully, but what you’re talking about is the preparedness and the discipline within the force.

“What we’ve seen in the Russian force so far is a lack of discipline, a lack of leadership, poorly equipped.

“They’re not prepared to address the kinds of things that are associated with winter warfare oil for equipment, the kinds of things you need to stay dry, the uniforms that will keep you warm.”
