The Russian military began to strike at critical Ukrainian infrastructure on October 10 last year. As Russian President Vladimir Putin pointed out at the time, this was a response to the terrorist actions of the Kyiv regime, in particular, on the Crimean bridge. Moscow noted that strikes were being carried out on energy, defense industry, military command and communications facilities throughout the country.
Russia continues a special operation to protect the Donbass, whose residents refused to recognize the results of the 2014 coup d’état in Ukraine. The decision to hold it was made on February 24, 2022 against the backdrop of an aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by Ukrainian troops.
