How Putin badly miscalculated Inbox Telegraph Front Page Unsubscribe 2:49 AM (5 hours ago) to me View in browser Thursday May 12 2022 The Telegraph Front Page AM Good morning. Danny Boyle covers what we learnt from new UK defence pacts – and Cornwall's latest hostility towards summer dwellers. Free for your first month: See what the story means for you Putin's invasion backfires by pushing duo to Nato Part of Vladimir Putin's justification for the latest assault on Ukraine was to push Nato further from Russia's borders. He has badly miscalculated. Boris Johnson yesterday sealed mutual defence pacts with Sweden and Finland to strengthen opposition to the Russian leader. The Prime Minister suggested British troops could be sent to the two Nordic nations if Kremlin forces invaded – even if the countries do not join Nato – as he gave his public support for expanding the military alliance to further contain Russia. Europe editor James Crisp writes that the defence pacts, signed during Mr Johnson's visit to both nations yesterday, are a warning shot to Moscow. Sweden and Finland are expected to join Nato, whose troops are pictured above in a tactical exercise in Lithuania, which would mean they are covered by the alliance's Article 5 guaranteeing that a declaration of war on one member is one on all. In his analysis, defence and security editor Dominic Nicholls explains the Alice-in-Wonderland nature of Mr Putin's perception of geopolitics. Meanwhile, Ukraine will feel the aftermath of Russia's invasion 'for 100 years', the German Chancellor warned, as western leaders prepared to drive a wedge between themselves and Moscow. It came as Ukraine's top prosecutor disclosed plans for the first war crimes trial of a captured Russian soldier. The office of Iryna Venediktova has been investigating more than 10,700 alleged war crimes committed by Russian forces and has identified more than 600 suspects.
