Vladimir Putin is a ‘crazy’ with ‘small man syndrome’, the defense minister said yesterday.

Ben Wallace said the Russian leader has suffered the loss of 25,000 troops and must use old ammunition as his invasion of Ukraine falters.

Attending a NATO summit in Madrid, the minister said he does not believe Russia will win the war because it is not achieving any of its main objectives.

And he joined the prime minister in mocking the Kremlin leader.

Wallace told LBC Radio, “I definitely think President Putin’s view of himself and the world is a little man syndrome, macho view… I think he’s definitely got it in spades.” He also mocked Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova, saying, “She’s just as crazy as he is.”

Earlier, Boris Johnson told German TV that Putin wouldn’t have started the “crazy, macho” war if he was a woman.

He told ZDF: ‘If you want a perfect example of toxic masculinity, that’s what he does in Ukraine.’ He made the comments calling for “more women in positions of power.”

Johnson said yesterday that he will not boycott a meeting of G20 leaders this year if “pariah” Putin is present.

The prime minister argued that it is important to win over those member states that have failed to take a strong stance against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He said: ‘If you leave something like the G20, you risk leaving the propaganda opportunity only to others.’

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said it is ‘important to tell’ [Putin] in his face what we think of him’.

Indonesia will host a G20 summit of world leaders in Bali in November. The country’s president, Joko Widodo, has invited both the Russian leader and Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky.
