Russia’s offensive in Ukraine will continue until its ‘objectives are achieved,’ according to the Russian Defense Ministry. For almost a week, Russia has been launching assaults against Ukraine.
So far, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has claimed the lives of almost 350 civilians. According to the most recent satellite pictures, a 40-mile long convoy is on its way to Kyiv. Ukraine has stated that an immediate ceasefire is their goal for the negotiations, while Russian President Vladimir Putin has placed the country’s nuclear deterrent forces in a “special combat duty regime.” Several countries, including Germany, the United States, Australia, and Canada, have opted to provide military assistance to Ukraine. Meanwhile, India voted no in the UN Human Rights Council meeting on Monday.
Russia will continue its offensive in Ukraine until its “objectives are fulfilled,” Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday, over a week after Moscow launched its invasion, according to AFP. “Russian armed forces will continue to conduct the special military operation until the objectives are met,” Shoigu said during a press conference broadcast on state television. Moscow wants to “demilitarise and de-Nazify” Ukraine, he added, as well as safeguard Russia from a “military danger posed by Western countries.”
