Major General Chip Chapman claimed that Russian dictator Putin was using tactics from the Syrian playbook on the battlefield in Ukraine. The British military Major went on to discuss how the Russian army had attacked hospitals, bakeries and schools in Ukraine. And stated that Putin was trying to break the Ukrainian people with such vicious attacks in recent times. Western military experts have been warning that Russian troops are burnt out from battle and losing their morale on the frontlines in Ukraine.
Major General Chip Chapman told Times Radio: “Putin can still sort of have a season withhold framework and that’s what I said around the 24th of February.
“And that one of the options, the withhold option is some of the stuff he’s doing now.
“He could say we will attack you in perpetuity using the Syrian Playbook which is what we’ve seen in the last few days, to punish the civilians in Ukraine.
“It’s the systematic attacks, the attacks on power stations water facilities hospitals, bakeries, schools things like that.

Major General Chip Chapman added: “To try and break this will of the Ukrainian people, but I think the will of the Russian military is actually a lot weaker than the will of the Ukrainian people.
“And certainly the Ukrainian army, and as I said at the very start armies don’t fight wars nations fight wars.

“Finally, they have to tell him that the army is not coming, and he loses his mind. Well, that could literally be Putin.”
He added: “I think the Russian people don’t know. If they knew, we would know because it would get out.
