Russian President Vladimir Putin’s advisers are not telling him the truth about the war in Ukraine, the head of the UK’s intelligence agency GCHQ says.
In a rare speech, Sir Jeremy Fleming said Russia has “massively misjudged the situation” in Ukraine, adding that beleaguered Russian troops have been sabotaging their own equipment and accidentally shot down one of their own aircraft.
The spy chief says Mr Putin has “overestimated the abilities of his military to secure a rapid victory”.
Meanwhile the US says it has intelligence of tensions between the Russian president and his military leadership.
