Vladimir Putin wanted a ‘total cleansing’ of Ukraine with ‘house-to-house terror’ and civilians dragged off to concentration camps, leaked spy documents have claimed.
Shocking emails from the FSB mention orders ‘from the very top’, it has been alleged.
It came as the deranged tyrant was finally charged with war crimes.
After many Russian setbacks, evidence of mass graves and torture chambers has been revealed, especially in Bucha.

The mysterious source claimed a ‘big terror’ was destined for Kherson, which will go through several stages’, The Sun reported.
The documents claimed that once mass protests had been subdued, the next stage would be ‘door-to-door terror’, which dissidents taken in the dead of night to ‘concentration camps or worse’ in Russia.

It is believed they were part of a deliberate Kremlin strategy carried out in part by the feared Wagner Group of mercenaries, previously intercepted Russian radio transmissions revealed.
Germany’s foreign intelligence service, the BND, has heard messages from Putin’s forces discussing the brutal murder of civilians in the city of horrors outside Kyiv, which was recaptured by Ukraine over the weekend.
The transmissions were linked to specific corpses seen in Bucha, with one soldier talking about how he and his colleagues shot dead someone on a bicycle, while another said: ‘First question soldiers, then shoot them.’

‘People are abandoned in the trenches as if homeless and littered with corpses,’ complained Russian reservist draftees in a new video appealing directly to Vladimir Putin.
‘Retreat-blocking detachments were set up against us and they did not let us out of positions.’
They are forced at gunpoint to remain in position, a tactic used by Stalin’s cruel SMERSH secret police in World War Two.
