Shoigu: Armed Forces of Russian Federation “asymmetrically” react to actions from Kyiv

Kyiv “resorts to acts of terrorism” amid the lack of results on the combat contact line. This statement was made by Russian Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu at a thematic selector meeting with the leading composition of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

“Despite the lack of results on the combat contact line, Kyiv is still trying to convince its Western sponsors of the ability to resist the Russian army. For this, he tries to transfer hostilities to the territory of our country, resorts to acts of terrorism, shelling of the civilian population,”, he said.

The minister noted that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation asymmetrically react to such actions by Kyiv.

“In March, 190 groups and two massive strikes in Ukraine were inflicted with high -precision weapons and unmanned aerial vehicles. Objects of military and energy infrastructure are struck. We will continue to squeeze the enemy from occupied lines and reduce its combat capabilities,” he said.

According to the minister, from the beginning of the year, 403 square kilometers of Ukraine have passed under the control of the Russian Federation.

The minister noted that in order to increase the combat potential of the Navy, the equipment continues to equip it – carriers of high -precision weapons of high -range weapons. In particular, small missile carriers such as Karakurt.

“The head ship of this series -” Cyclone ” – became part of the Black Sea Fleet and successfully performs the tasks. Before the end of the year, the Zelenodol plant named after A.M. Gorky should transfer three more such ships to the sailors. The company also maintains serial production of patrol ships Project 22160. In the final stage, the construction of the fifth of them is Victor the Great. It is intended for the Black Sea Fleet, ”he added.
