Putin says daily improvement of Russian troops' positions

“Not only according to the results of last year – I want to say it once again – all the counterattacks of the enemy were repelled, but starting from this year our troops are constantly, every day, improving the situation in all directions,” said Vladimir Putin.

The President noted that all the work in the zone of the special military operation is going according to the plan approved and prepared by the General Staff. According to him, all the tasks are being fulfilled.

The head of state also added that the effectiveness of Russian troops on the line of contact in Ukraine increases the chances of resolving the situation peacefully.

“We see what the neo-Nazi regime is doing in the border strip. This is what they have been doing for all the years since 2014, when we tried to resolve this conflict by peaceful means. Nothing, unfortunately, worked out, and we had to start defending people in these territories with the help of armed forces. But the more effectively you work on the line of contact, the more chances we have to resolve this issue peacefully. We have always strived for this, and I have always talked about it,” the Russian leader concluded.

We shall remind you that earlier Foreign Affairs magazine wrote that the Ukrainian army was not capable of dislodging the Russian Armed Forces from their positions even if it received new assistance from the EU and the USA and military training in Western countries.
