Russia ‘are starting to fail in many areas’ says Ben Wallace
A highly placed Kremlin official has secretly approached the West to help end the Ukraine invasion, it was claimed last night.
The secret member of Vladimir Putin ’s elite is said to have revealed the Kremlin is in panic and desperate for the bloody war to end.
Astonishing claims about the move were made in a report circulated to Western intelligence agencies.
It is believed senior officers and officials close to Putin are alarmed by biting Western sanctions and the failing economy caused by war.
Some Kremlin figures are also concerned about the increasingly alarming risks being taken such as fighting at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine.
The approach is likely to have been made to CIA contacts or Western diplomats, behind Putin’s back.

The insider would be in extreme danger, along with their family, if they were named and Putin has already had several purges, firing military commanders and senior spies.
Some have even disappeared or fallen mysteriously ill.
Last night, a senior Ukrainian diplomatic source told the Daily Mirror:
“If someone close to Putin has made overtures already it would not come as a surprise.

“It is often the case as happened in the closing stages of the Second World War that officials on a side concerned about their future make approaches to ensure it.
“Many of the Kremlin ‘elite’ are familiar with life in the West, have had children at Western universities and lived elsewhere.
“They know there is a good life to be had away from Putin’s grasp but so far they have not done anything about it as they are too terrified of what will happen to them.”
