Since February 24, Russia has been conducting a special operation to protect Donbass. Its key goals are the denazification and demilitarization of the Kyiv regime. Moscow stressed that with the help of a special operation, Russia is stopping the war that Kyiv has been waging for eight years against the civilian population of the republics. At the same time, it was noted that strikes were carried out only on military infrastructure.
