Vladimir Putin is set to make a “very important” announcement tomorrow on the ongoing war in Ukraine, according to a pro-Russian official.

The Russian leader will reportedly make a statement during 80th anniversary celebrations for the siege of Leningrad in World War Two.

The speech is said to be taking place in St Petersburg, according to Vladimir Rogov, who was appointed by the Russians to run the occupied Zaporizhzhia region in Ukraine.

No official announcement from the Kremlin has been made on the claim that was originally made on Mr Rogov’s Telegram channel.

Putin’s moves are often difficult to keep track of as he often pulls out of events, visits and speeches in the last minute.

Despite this, local authorities are reportedly preparing for his visit, despite the nature of the rumoured announcement remaining a mystery.

The Russian president is said to have submitted a draft law for the “termination of international treaties” with Europe, according to Russian state media reports.

The so-called important “announcement” may be linked to this, or potentially his rumoured ill-health, that continues to spark speculation.

Reports have claimed the Russian President is suffering with cancer and Parkinson’s, which could see him stepping away from his Kremlin duties in a matter of months.

Russian attacks have continued to wreak havoc in Ukraine, resulting in the UK offering support in the form of tanks.

Foreign Secretary James Cleverly defiantly said: "The message we're sending to Putin and, frankly, anyone else that cares to be watching, is that we made a commitment to support Ukrainians until they are victorious.

"What Putin should understand is we are going to have the strategic endurance to stick with them until the job is done and the best thing that he can do to preserve the lives of his own troops is to recognize that."
