Defence Secretary Mr Wallace said the “messages we hear from the Kremlin echo what we heard in the 1930s and 1940s from Nazi Germany”.

He told a conference of the Northern Group of allied nations in Iceland that Russia’s President Putin was shoving troops into a “meat grinder”.

Mr Wallace said Putin had “a desire to use ethnic nationalism to remove people whose identities challenge the current Russia as the Kremlin sees it.”

He said around 80,000 Russians had been killed or injured so far.
