PARANOID Vladimir Putin has been tearing down forests around Moscow to make way for more air defences.
Images from the Russian capital show the tyrant has laid waste to swathes of forest, as he faces being toppled due to the disastrous war in Ukraine.

Humiliated Putin appeared to be terrified of being taken out as his calamitous war rages on.
The trees have been chopped down so more powerful S-400 anti-aircraft missile defence systems can be put in place.
The weapon is designed to destroy incoming cruise and ballistic missiles as well as aircraft and can reach an altitude of around 18 miles.
It comes after Putin had Pantsir-S1 and S-400 defence systems positioned on rooftops across Moscow and near his secret forest palace
Now new before and after pictures have revealed in an investigation by independent news outlet The Insider.
It comes as Ukrainian attack drones have already come within around 60 miles of Moscow.
The vast clearance highlights how Putin has put his own capital in danger by unleashing war in Europe.
The destruction of trees is graphically seen in the Kuryanovo district of Moscow.
More decimation is seen close to Kolomenskoye Park, Moscow, where residents have lost popular recreation facilities.
The S-400 and a 96L6E all-altitude radar have been deployed in fields belonging to the Timiryazev Agricultural Academy.
A similar deployment has been made at Losiny Island park reserve in the Bogorodskoye district in the northeast of Moscow.
A high-powered military deployment is also visible on what was Europe’s largest garbage dump, the Salaryevo landfill.
Moscow has also seen the recent deployment of Pantsir-S1 system on the roof of the HQ of the army general staff, and near Taganskaya metro station.
The system was recently spotted just six miles from Putin’s official residence near Moscow – seemingly to protect the fearful president from drones and missiles.
The high-tech launcher has anti-aircraft guns and radar-guided rockets designed to bring down jets, drones and cruise missiles at a range of up to 12 miles.
Another was spotted close to the Putin’s opulent lair on Lake Valdai.
Putin’s gymnast lover Alina Kabaeva, 39, is said to favour the lavish hideaway, which is hidden from public view by thick tree cover.
She and Putin are rumoured to have between two and four young children, but the 13-year relationship has never been publicly acknowledged.
Both his homes are now protected from possible attack from drones or long-range missiles launched from Ukraine.
