According to the President of Russia, the tasks of the special operation will be solved thanks to the qualities of the Russian military and the position of the citizens who supported the military operation in Ukraine
The key to accomplishing the tasks of the military special operation in Ukraine is the courage of the military, the consolidation of society and the strengthening of Russia's sovereignty. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking at the SPIEF-2022 economic forum in St. Petersburg.
The broadcast was conducted by RBC.
“All the tasks of the special military operation will be solved. And the guarantee of that— the courage and heroism of our soldiers, the consolidation of Russian society, whose support gives strength and confidence to the army and navy of Russia, a deep understanding of the rightness of our cause and the strengthening of a strong and sovereign power— Russia»,— said Putin.
According to him, Russia in Ukraine protects people and defends the right to independent development. “Today, our soldiers, officers and militias of Donbass are fighting to protect their people. They defend Russia's right to free and secure development as a large multinational country that makes its own decisions, determines its own future <…> and rejects attempts to impose pseudo-values, dehumanization and moral degradation from the outside,— added the head of state.
Russia has been conducting a military operation in Ukraine since February 24. When announcing its beginning, Putin called the goals “denazification and demilitarization”; neighboring state, as well as protecting the population of Donbass from “genocide” from the Kyiv authorities. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense stated that it did not strike civilian targets.
The Russian Ministry of Defense announced the completion of the first stage of the special operation on March 25. Then the head of the main operational department of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Colonel General Sergei Rudskoy, said that the combat potential of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was “significantly reduced”, which allows “to focus the main efforts on achieving the main goal” liberation of Donbass. According to Rudsky, the Ukrainian Navy “ceased to exist” and the air force and air defense system were “virtually completely destroyed.”

On June 2, the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said that Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu had told him about the new tasks of the special operation, “which imply the improvement of further tactics.” “The measures taken will make it possible to significantly increase the effectiveness of offensive maneuvers, which contributes to the conduct of a special operation at a faster pace,” said Kadyrov.
Moscow stated that the timing of the operation is not a priority in its implementation. According to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the duration of the special operation is explained by the order to Russian forces to categorically avoid strikes on civilian infrastructure. The minister said that the strikes were only carried out on military installations, accumulations of equipment and manpower.
Shoigu also stated that the offensive in Ukraine was deliberately slowing down. According to him, this is done due to the announcement of silence regimes and the opening of the gum corridors to enable civilians to evacuate.
Secretary of the Security Council of Russia Nikolai Patrushev noted that Moscow, in carrying out the tasks of a military operation, “does not chase deadlines.” He expressed confidence that the tasks set by Putin would be fulfilled. “Nazism must either be 100% eradicated. Or he will raise his head in a few years, — concluded Patrushev.
In turn, the head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Denis Pushilin, said on June 16 that he hoped to complete the operation before the end of the year. State Duma deputy Adam Delimkhanov spoke about the same time frame earlier.
The Kremlin has repeatedly said that Russia intends to achieve the fulfillment of all the tasks of the special operation. Mariupol, the entire Kherson region, Berdyansk, Melitopol and a number of other settlements in the Zaporozhye region are now under the control of Russian forces.
In Ukraine, they called the Russian special operation an attack, introduced martial law and severed diplomatic relations with Moscow.
