MOSCOW: The Russian army will try to take full control over eastern and southern Ukraine, a top general was quoted as saying Friday, a day after Moscow announced the “liberation” of Mariupol.

“Since the start of the second phase of the special operation… one of the tasks of the Russian army is to establish full control over the Donbas and southern Ukraine,” Major General Rustam Minnekaev was cited as saying by Russian news agencies.

“This will provide a land corridor to Crimea,” he added, referring to the peninsula Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

Minnekaev’s comments were the most detailed description yet of Russia’s goals in the second phase of its operation, which began after its troops pulled back from the Ukrainian capital Kyiv.

“Control over the south of Ukraine is another way out to Transnistria, where there are cases of Russian-speaking people being oppressed,” Minnekaev said.

Ukraine says evacuation corridor agreed for Mariupol

Transnistria is a small breakaway region in the former Soviet republic of Moldova, where pro-Russia separatists have been armed and backed by Moscow.

Moscow recognised the independence of the separatist Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics in Ukraine’s Donbas shortly before launching a military campaign on February 24 with the stated aim of protecting the Russian-speaking population there.

On Thursday, Russia announced the “liberation” of Mariupol in eastern Ukraine after besieging the strategic port city on the shores of the Sea of Azov for nearly two months.

As I said on MAR 08, 2022 04:58AM in "https://www.brecorder.com/news/40159181/biden-allies-affirm-in-call-will-continue-raising-costs-on-russia-for-ukraine-invasion",as under: "The Kiev thrust was a diversion - to ensure that UKR does not send its men to secure the Ports !" "His men are on the verge of a complete takeover of all sea ports and waterways, in East and South UKR !" Putin has the South,and at least 1 port - MARIUPOL. Putin has EXPORTED 4 million Ukranians to EU.EU will spend at least 2000 USD per month on them = 100 Billion USD per annum.These People will stay in EU for years, as there is nothing to return to UKR for. By targetting Kiev and moving troops to Kiev, the aid and reinforcements to the South were cut off. The brave Ukranian troops,will have to save each morsel of food and water,,for each day. NATO arms CANNOT REACH South UKR. UKR WILL TRY TO SEND THIS AID TO THE SOUTH and PUTIN WILL GIVE THEM "SAFE PASSAGE" ! PUTIN WANTS ALL THAT NATO AID ! dindooohindoo
