Putin grins in sheepskin during Siberian photoshoot… after issuing new ‘kill list’ of targets

Vladimir Putin was seen dressed in a sheep skin to go on manoeuvres in Siberia with his defence minister after releasing his latest ‘hit list’ of opponents.  

The Russian President, 68, was seen driving an all terrain vehicle and crossing a shaky suspension footbridge over a frozen river.

Then he joined defence minister Sergey Shoigu – a native of the mountainous Tuva region of Siberia – for a picnic in the wilderness, with empty vodka glasses on the table, and animal skins to warm the seats.

Putin routinely appears on state television participating in various outdoor pursuits to project the image of a healthy and robust leader capable of leading the country for many years to come.

His bare-chested exploits have conjured for many Russians an image of Putin, 68, as an in-shape role model.  

His latest exploit comes as the Russian intelligence officer who warned that Salisbury novichok victim Sergei Skripal was as assassination target has spoken out to warn new targets. 

He works for Russia’s version of MI5, FSB, and is able to mask his identity using complex technology.

The spy warned that a Russian special ops team are getting ready to cross into Britain from Ireland, according to The Mirror. 

He said: ‘Due to Covid almost all overseas operations were frozen. Now they are starting to activate them again.’

He uses pay-as-you-go phones which he can throw away easily to warn people in Britain that there is a message waiting for them on a USB drive. 

Messages are then automatically sent with an undetectable email.  

It is believed that two of the targets have told British police about the hitlist.
