“Losing on the ground, the Kiev regime seeks to achieve at least short-term success in some areas, presenting them as important,” said the Russian Defense Minister.

Regarding the operations in Lugansk, what Shoigu said seems to be true as the defense of the Ukrainians, especially in the Popasna region, seems to be facing a big problem.

He also said that on the eve of Victory Day, “the Ukrainian authorities made an “adventurous” attempt to occupy Snake Island, ending in failure, and warned that any future challenge would be dealt with severely.

Sergei Shoigu also said that in the near future the Western Military District of the Russian army will be significantly strengthened given the NATO expansion in Sweden and Finland.
