Russian President Vladimir Putin can formally declare war on Ukraine on May 9. US and Western officials are forced to believe that it is a move that will enable Moscow's reserve forces to fully mobilise as invasion efforts falter. According to a report by news agency CNN, May 9 is known as 'Victory Day' in Russia. The day commemorates the country's defeat by the Nazis in 1945.

Russian military angry

Britain's Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said Putin could use Russia's Victory Day parade on May 9 to announce an increase in its reserves in the final battle against Ukraine. It comes as former NATO chief Richard Sheriff warned the West to "prepare itself" for a "worst-case scenario" war with Russia in Ukraine.

A Russian military source told the Telegraph that the military was angry that the attack on Kyiv had failed. People in the army are demanding payment for past failures and they want to go further in Ukraine. Earlier this week, the Russian military was said to be outraged that Putin had downplayed the invasion of Ukraine and called for a fresh escalation of the conflict.

As CNN reports, Putin has consistently characterised his invasion of Ukraine as a conflict with a Jewish president, which has been dismissed by historians and political observers alike as a campaign of 'denial'. Wallace said I wouldn't be surprised. I have no idea about this. He is probably going to announce this May Day that we are now at war with the Nazis of the world and we need to mobilize the Russian people in a big way.

Putin may take advantage of the value of 9th May

Western officials have long assumed that Putin would take advantage of the symbolic significance and propaganda value of that day to announce a military achievement in Ukraine, a major escalation of hostilities, or both.
