Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday that the Russian Armed Forces had generally completed the main tasks of the special military operation on the territory of Ukraine.
“In general, the main tasks of the first stage of the operation have been completed,” Shoigu said at a conference call.
“The combat potential of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has been significantly reduced,” the minister noted.
According to him, this makes it possible for the Russian military to “focus their main attention and main efforts on achieving the main goal – the liberation of Donbass.”
