Vladimir Putin is preparing to make an “important” announcement on Wednesday, a pro-Russian official has claimed, as the war in Ukraine reaches a critical point. The Russia President will reportedly make the statement as part of a series of events to mark 80 years since the siege of Leningrad – now St Petersburg – in World War 2. It would also come just days before Russia’s war in Ukraine started exactly a year ago on February 24, 2022.

Vladimir Rogov, a pro-Putin official appointed by the Russians to run the occupied Zaporizhzhia region in Ukraine, took to his Telegram channel to claim the Russian leader make the “important” speech tomorrow in St Petersburg.

He made the announcement this afternoon, although there has been no official confirmation on Putin’s speech from the Kremlin.
