Speaking on Friday night’s edition of The Late Late Show, Taoiseach Micheál Martin called Russian President Vladimir Putin an “evil man”.

“I get very angry when I think of him,” Martin said.

“He’s an evil man as far as I’m concerned. Absolutely dangerous and causing incalculable harm to people…to the people of Ukraine, but also fundamentally changing the rules-based multilateral order that we all adhere to and cherish so much .”

This follows similar comments in Dáil Éireann last week in which the Taoiseach called Putin “a bully and a thug”.
