According to The Sun, the warning came in his first speech since he became Chief of the General Staff this month, taking overall control of the British Army.

General Sanders added: “I am the first Chief of the General Staff since 1941 to take command of the Army in the shadow of a land war in Europe involving a continental power.

“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine underlines our core purpose — to protect the UK by being ready to fight and win wars on land.”
