One of Vladimir Putin's warlords has just posted a threatening warning to Poland in a chilling video where he maps out what he will do to the nation in just 'six seconds'.
Ramzan Kadyrov, one of the Russian president's Chechen warlords, has filmed and uploaded a short video warning Poland: "We can show you what we are capable of in six seconds."
The haunting video follows Poland's capital city, Warsaw, declaring its support for Ukraine as it called for a total ban on the importation of Russian oil and gas.
"The issue of Ukraine is closed," Kadyrov begins. "I'm interested in Poland."
Kadyrov, self-dubbed as Putin's 'attack dog', carried on: "Poland. What is it trying to achieve? After Ukraine, if we're given the command, in six seconds, we'll show you what we're capable of."
On a final warning, the warlord continued: "You should better take back your weapons and your mercenaries and beg official forgiveness for what you did to our ambassador."
"We won't just ignore it. Bear that in mind," he concluded.
The 43-year-old, alongside his squad, were enlisted by Putin back in February with the objective of tracking down, detaining and killing a list of Ukrainian officials and security officers that the Russian president deems as a threat to Moscow.
Kadyrov and his Chechen troops, referred to as the 'hunters', have been numerously accused by the European Union of Ukrainian war crimes alongside a whole host of human rights abuses.
All claims have since been denied by the Chechen warlord.
This chilling warning video follows the first-ever war crimes trial since the invasion of Ukraine.
A Russian soldier, Sgt Vadim Shishimarin, 21, was convicted of killing civilian Oleksandr Shelipova, 62, in the north-eastern village of Chupakhivka on 28 February.
Shishimarin has since been jailed for life for the crime.
While the 21-year-old admitted to the murder, he maintained that we was just acting on military orders.

The prosecutor of the case, Iryna Venediktov, has since relayed that her legal office is in the process of prosecuting 41 Russian soldiers for a multitude of offences, some of which include bombing civilian infrastructure, killing civilians, rape and looting.
