Tory MP Ben Bradley claimed that he would hold Vladimir Putin to account by sending in the SAS with sniper rifles and argued that most of the international community wanted the Russian leader gone. Mr Dale explained to the Tory MP that he should not advocate for such actions as a member of Parliament, and claimed that Mr Bradley’s heart was ruling his head. Mr Bradley stuck to his word and stated that things would be very different if Putin was not in power.

Mr Bradley said: “Aside from sending the SAS in with sniper rifles which I’m all for… I think if we probably had done that.”

Mr Dale added: “International law…”

Mr Bradley said: “Yeah, but sometimes… You know, I’m not in Government so I can say things like that.

“No, but there are discussing the… Processes aren’t they, I feel like, and that’s only from what I read on the conscious hour, whatever media outlet has its own biases in whatever direction.

“The same as international media does, but it feels to me like there is growing pressure on Putin domestically.

“At whatever point he is no longer in that position and we’re able to get access to him, I hope he will be hauled through the international courts in the same way as any other global leader would be.

“The challenge of course, aside from the SAS option, which I repeat that I am all for in the current context…”

Mr Dale added: “How do you get hold of him? Isn’t this a sort of heart-ruling head thing… Where I mean, look, we can all agree if Putin wasn’t there things might return to normal.

“But you can’t as a member of Parliament advocate the assassination of another head of state.”

Mr Bradley said: “Look, I think the reality of the situation regardless of rhetoric around it is we can’t get hold of him can we, he doesn’t come out of his building.

“So it’s almost an irrelevant conversation…”

Mr Dale said: “I sense a certain rowing back coming up.”

Mr Bradley said: “No look, clearly you just said if he wasn’t there the situation would be different, I think most of the international community would quite like to just wake up tomorrow and somebody might have done that, call that advocacy or not.”

Russian TV pundit says they 'look like clowns' after Ukraine loss

Since Russian troops retreated from Kherson, Ukrainian troops who have been liberating the region have found more evidence of war crimes similar to the ones perpetrated in the Western town of Bucha.

Reports have been emerging of mass graves, with bodies showing evidence of torture. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has vowed to hold Putin to account when the war is over.

Mr Zelensky claimed that the bodies of 400 civilians and soldiers had been found in the newly liberated city of Kherson.

Mr Zelensy vowed: “We will find and bring to justice every murderer. Without a doubt.”

Former NATO ambassador Kurt Volker claimed that Putin was facing a backlash in Russia due to the failures of his ongoing war in Ukraine.

Mr Volker told CNN: “I think Putin is facing  some serious problems inside Russia, where everyone knows that his war against Ukraine is failing and is deeply damaging to Russia, both militarily and economically.”

He added: “What is interesting here is that Russia is unable to win the war. They are not able to hold the territory that they’ve already taken. 

“Ukraine is pushing them back. We saw that in eastern Kharkiv, and we’ve seen that in Donbas. We’ve seen that now around Kherson.

“And this will continue. I think the Ukrainians will continue to call back territory.”
