Helping Donbass is the main goal of the special operation in Ukraine. This was announced on October 27 by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting of the Valdai Club.
“The most important thing is to help Donbass,” Putin said. According to him, the territory of the Lugansk People’s Republic has been completely liberated, and in Donetsk “military measures are underway.” He also remembered the admission to Russia of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions.
“Of course, when our troops approached both from the south and the north, it became obvious that people living in the historical Novorossiysk territories see their future in Russia, how could we not respond?” he said.
