Russian state TV has whipped up hysteria by highlighting a Donbas fighter claiming that Ukrainian nationalists will “kill and butcher you all, and hang your children on wires”.

It comes as Moscow relentlessly moved military assets towards Ukraine and conducted war games both in Belarus and around Russia.

The scale of the military buildup is said to be the biggest since the Second World War.

New social media videos showed tank drills in Leningrad region, and in the Pacific fleet.

Military equipment was on the move in Kursk, Belgorod, and Voronezh regions, all with Ukrainian borders, as well as in Liptsek and Saratov.

Russian and Belarusian Su-30SMs also staged joint patrols over Belarus.

Weekly TV review shows on nationwide state channels accused the West of “hysteria” in warning about an impending invasion, which the Kremlin strongly denies it is plotting.

Anchorman Dmitry Kiselyov, described as Vladimir Putin’s propagandist-in-chief, warned that “thousands of civilians have been tortured and savagely killed” in the Donbas.

He also accused the West of “stubbornly ignoring the crimes of the Kyiv regime”.

The sequence was ominously captioned: “They are preparing to kill.”

Likening Ukrainian nationalists to fascists, he spoke of “crimes of the little Nazis during their punitive operations in which the numerous victims were civilians, women and children”.
