The humiliated tyrant, 71, ordered an aerial bombing blitz in Kozinka village in Belgorod – a border region increasingly ravaged by daily shelling and incursions by pro-Ukrainian Russian partisans.

Following the devastation, reports suggest there is not a single house left in tact in Kozinka – which had a prewar population of 1,132.

The FAB-500 glide bombs strikes came days after the Russian military denied the presence of enemy forces in Kozinka and other villages across the border from Ukraine.

However, since last week – three ragtag battalions of anti-Putin insurgents have been fiercely battling government troops and capturing territory.

Previously in the war, Putin’s planes have bombed Russian territory due to misfiring, but in this case the act was pinpoint targeted. 

The huge force of Putin’s response was highlighted by Telegram channel BILD in Russian.

“This video shows massive Russian airstrikes on… Russia,” said analyst Julian Röpcke. 

“Although forces hostile to the regime captured only one street in the small village of Kozinka in the Belgorod region, Putin responded with brutal force, such as numerous FAB-500 glide bombs from fighter-bombers.”

Pro-Putin channel Two Majors said: “Several groups of enemy infantry have already been destroyed.

“The fighting continues.”

The savage Kozinka bombing reflects Putin’s fury at the attacks on Belgorod regions by the Ukrainians and the partisan fighters. 

This week he ordered his military to respond by hitting civilian targets in Ukraine – which his armed forces have anyway done during the war – and demanded his FSB hunt down and kill anti-Putin partisan fighters wherever they are.

Accusing his enemy of civilian strikes, he said: “We can respond in the same way. 

“[We can hit] civilian infrastructure and all other objects of this kind that the enemy attacks.”

This is seen as behind a heavy attack on Ukrainian capital Kyiv today. 

On the rebel battalions fighting with Ukraine against Russia, Putin told FSB commanders: “These traitors, I ask you, as this has always been the case in our history, not to forget who they are, to reveal them by name.

“We will punish them without a statute of limitations, wherever they are.”

The Russian armed forces said: “In the Belgorod direction, Russian units have completely cleared the settlement of Kozinka from the remnants of Ukrainian militants.”

The Russian military “continue to take measures to prevent the penetration of sabotage and reconnaissance groups of the Ukrainian Armed Forces into the border area”.

A local woman told  Dozhd TV channel that Kozinka was “practically destroyed” due to the Russian bombing.

“They dumped [the bombs] on residential buildings – and in most cases there are no houses.”
