The localities liberated from the Kiev regime are inhabited by about 108,000 people. Total area of the liberated territory is about 145 square kilometres.

Success of the Russian army and the units of people militia of the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics considerably diminish moral and psychological condition of the Ukrainian army personnel. In 30th Mechanised Brigade deployed near Artyomovsk, there are mass cases of alcohol abuse, drug use and unauthorised abandonment of combat positions.

Russian Federation Armed Forces continue launching attacks at military facilities located in Ukraine.

High-precision attacks of Russian Aerospace Forces and Kalibr missiles were launched at 169th Army Training Centre near Desna (Chernigov region), 199th Air Assault Troops Training Centre near Teterevka (Zhitomir region), as well as at 184th Training Centre of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) near Starichi (Lvov region).

Attacks have resulted in neutralising 65th, 66th mechanised brigades and 46th Airmobile Brigade from AFU strategic reservs that were finishing their preparation at those training grounds. The planned redeployment of the abovementioned units to operations area has been frustrated.

Operational-tactical and army aviation, missile troops and artillery have neutralised: manpower and military equipment in 286 areas, artillery and mortar units in 62 areas, 2 command posts near Visunsk and Barmashovo (Nikolayev region), 4 munitions depots near Verkhnekamenka, Lisichansky and western suburbs of Lisichansk (Lugansk People's Republic).

Attacks launched by aviation, missile troops and artillery have resulted in the elimination of over 720 nationalists, 12 tanks and other armoured combat vehicles, as well as 16 special vehicles.

The enemy unsuccessfully attempted to launch attacks by aviation and MRLS at Snake Island.

Russian Defence Ministry report on the progress of the special military operation in Ukraine

27.06.2022 (14:00)

The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue the special military operation in Ukraine.

On June 26, Russian Aerospace Forces launched 4 high-precision air-based missiles at the workshops of Artyom missile corporation located in Shevchenkovsky district of Kiev. This enterprise produced ordnance for Ukrainian multiple rocket-launching systems (MRLS).

According to live recording data, all of the 4 missiles have reached the target. The facility has been neutralised. Civilian infrastructure of Kiev has not been affected by high-precision armament.

Kiev regime attempted to intercept Russian high-precision missiles by the means of air defence deployed in the city. Ukrainian S-300 and Buk-M1 air defence system crews had launched over 10 air defence missiles.

Due to lack of interoperability between the launching ramps of the air defence systems and electronic facilities deployed in residential areas, 2 S-300 air defence missiles have been intercepted by Ukrainian Buk systems. One of the intercepted air defence missiles has presumably fallen down to a residential building.

Ukrainian command is trying to stop the chaotic escape of Ukrainian servicemen near Lisichansk amid the success of Russian army within liberating Donbass.

A Right Sector Nazi barrier unit was sent to hold the personnel of the first battalion from 72nd mechanised brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) near Volcheyarovka. Russian artillery has eliminated this unit.

The Ukrainian troops involved in operation towards Lisichansk are no longer controlled. Commander of 115th Independent Mechanised Brigade of the AFU who deployed its command post in the rear area has lost control over his units that caused losing 80 percent of manpower and about 70 percent of equipment of 138th Battalion from this brigade during operations.

On June 26, Russian units eliminated 2 sabotage and reconnaissance groups of mercenaries formed by 14 militants during the combats that took place 3 km from Lisichansk oil refinery (Lugansk People's Republic).

The first group was international and consisted of citizens from various European countries. The second was formed by mercenaries only from Georgia who were parts of the so-called Georgian Legion.

This armed group is mostly composed of criminals. The eliminated Georgian mercenaries were involved in the brutal torture and murder of Russian servicemen near Kiev in March this year.

Russian Defence Ministry has information about each mercenary involved in torturing and murdering out servicemen. We have found and punished them.

Russian Federation Armed Forces continue launching attacks at military facilities located in Ukraine.

High-precision armament of Russian Aerospace Forces has neutralised the base of 106th Battalion from 63rd Mechanised Infantry Brigade of the AFU near Visunsk (Nikolayev region). Over 40 Ukrainian servicemen and 12 units of military equipment have been eliminated.

Attacks have also resulted in the elimination of AFU manpower and military equipment in 27 areas, including those that formed part of the Right Sector near Lisichansk, as well as those of Azov and Kraken near Kharkov.

5 AFU command posts and 3 munitions, missile and artillery armament depots have been neutralised near Bereznegovatoye (Nikolayev region) and Novodruzhesk (Lugansk People's Republic).

Operational-tactical and army aviation, missile troops and artillery have neutralised: 24 command posts, artillery and mortar units in 58 areas, as well as manpower and military equipment in 304 areas.

Within the counter-battery warfare towards Donetsk, high-precision armament of Russian Aerospace Forces has neutralised: 3 Grad MRLS plattoons near Avdeyevka and Dzerzhinsk, a plattoon of M-777 155-mm howitzers near Konstantinovka, 2 Giatsint 152-mm howitzer plattoons near Kalinov and Artyomovo, as well as 2 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled artillery system plattoons near Ocheretino and Novolugansk that had been launching attacks at Donetsk and othe cities of the Donetsk People's Republic.

Russian air defence means have destroyed 10 Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles near Noviy Burluk, Arkushino, Kurulka, Semyonovka, Chervoniy Shakhtyor, Ternovaya (Kharkov region), Chernobayevka (Kherson region), Shcherbakovo (Zaporozhye region) and Petrovenki (Lugansk People's Republic).

2 Tochka-U tactical missiles have been intercepted near Kakhovka (Kherson region), as well as 1 MRLS rocket over Snake Island.

In total, 215 airplanes and 132 helicopters, 1,373 unmanned aerial vehicles, 350 anti-aircraft missile systems, 3,830 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 684 combat vehicles equipped with multiple rocket-launching systems, 3,025 field artillery cannons and mortars, as well as 3,870 units of special military equipment have been destroyed during the special military operation.

Russian Defence Ministry report on the progress of the special military operation in Ukraine

30.06.2022 (11:30)

On June 30, as a goodwill gesture, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation finished fulfilling the assigned tasks in Snake Island and withdrew the garrison that had been operating there.

The Russian Federation has demonstrated to the international society the absence of any obstacles for the efforts of UN to establish a humanitarian corridor for transporting agricultural products from Ukraine.

This solution will prevent Kiev from speculating on an impending grocery crisis citing the inability to export grain due to total control of the northwestern part of the Black Sea by Russia.

Now it is up to the Ukrainian side that is still not clearing the Black Sea coastline, including the harbour waters.

***

The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue the special military operation in Ukraine.

The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue successful offensive near Lisichansk. Over the past three days, Russian units have taken under control the Lisichansk oil refinery, the Matrosskaya coal mine, the Gelatine plant and the settlement of Topolevka. The allied forces have reached Lisichansk.

Ukrainian army is suffering big losses in this area. Only in Verkhnekamenka, over the past 24 hours, the enemy has lost more than 120 persons dead, as well as 70 in Verkhnekamenskoye.

The failures of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) at the combat area provoke an increase of the number of cases of desertion and evading to be involved in operations. There is an unorganised withdrawal of certain AFU units from Lisichansk.

The command conceals the facts of understaffing of units in every way possible. One of the battalions of 17th Tank Brigade that operates near Novaya Poltavka (Donetsk People's Republic) is left with less than 20% of personnel from the authorised strength.

At the same time, the Kiev regime has found the 'culprits' for military failures of the AFU at another pocket in Donbass. The second unit of the State Investigative Bureau of Ukraine in Kramatorsk has initiated criminal proceedings against the commanders and 171 servicemen of 42nd Battalion from 57th Mechanised Infantry Brigade that had been defending in Gorskoye.

These servicemen were detained and taken to the temporary detention facility in Kramatorsk.

Russian Federation Armed Forces continue launching attacks at military facilities located in Ukraine.

High-precision attacks launched by Russian Aerospace Forces have destroyed 2 command posts, 5 munitions depots near Ivano-Daryevka, Seversk (Donetsk People's Republic), Belogorovka (Lugansk People's Republic), Nikolayev, Lepetikha (Nikolayev region), as well as AFU manpower and military equipment in 26 areas.

Within the counter-battery warfare, high-precision attacks launched by Russian Aerospace Forces have neutralised 2 MRLS plattoons and 2 artillery plattoons near Lesovka, Selidovo and Netaylovo that had been shelling the settlements of the Donetsk People's Republic.

Operational-tactical and army aviation, missile troops and artillery have neutralised: 32 AFU command posts, 1 radar designed for detecting air targets near Katranka (Odessa region), 3 munitions depots near Spornoye (Donetsk People's Republic), as well as manpower and military equipment in 297 areas.

In addition, 11 Ukrainian UAVs have been shot down near Petrovenki, Berestovoye (Donetsk People's Republic), Brazhkovka, Velikiye Khutora, Staroverovka, Vesyoloye, Bayrak, Getmanovka, Ivanchukovka, Petemoga (Kharkov region), Peremozhnaya (Zaporozhye region).

8 MRLS projectiles have been intercepted near Nikolskoye (Kharkov region), Stakhanov (Lugansk People's Republic) and Pervomaysk (Donetsk People's Republic).

In total, 226 airplanes and 134 helicopters, 1,411 unmanned aerial vehicles, 353 anti-aircraft missile systems, 3,873 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 699 combat vehicles equipped with multiple rocket-launching systems, 3,067 field artillery cannons and mortars, as well as 3,948 units of special military equipment have been destroyed during the special military operation.

Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, Moscow, June 29, 2022

29 June 2022 18:47

..............................
Question:

The G7 leaders, in a joint statement, vowed to impose more sanctions on Russia and to provide even more assistance to Ukraine, from economic aid to intelligence support. They said they’d find new ways to isolate Russia from the world market and cut its income, including from the sale of gold. What retaliatory measures will Russia take?


Maria Zakharova:

This question would be better asked to the state agencies responsible for economic and financial issues. In our view, if unfriendly countries have decided to impose restrictions on themselves and voluntarily reject Russian gold, we will find more pragmatic and far-seeing buyers. We can see this already happening with a number of other product categories.

In a historical context, in retrospect, this has always been the case. This is not the first time that Western regimes have big ideas like this and then are the first to lose, and try to win back their positions when they have lost the market and profit.

We are less and less concerned about any new and absurd talk or sanctions ideas coming from the “collective West.” These ideas are clearly unhealthy – the only possible explanation when countries act against their own interests. If they were “without fear and beyond reproach,” morally and ethically, if they were models in terms of upholding the values they champion, if we knew that no benefit, circumstances, financial or economic interest could change their views that are important to them – we would be taking them seriously, knowing they were doing this because they are bearers of a high moral principle.

What we see, though, is they take all their high ideals, values ​​and promises, roll them up and shove them on the back burner in the twinkling of an eye when they need to make up for their losses or avoid missing benefits. We’ve been there before.

The United States has been goading the world for years with its invented story that the president of Venezuela was Juan Guaido, not Nicolas Maduro. They “lived” with this idea for several years, receiving Juan Guaido at their residences, inviting him to official meetings. Behind the back of the legitimately elected President Maduro, they decided on Venezuela’s future with some rogue, a man calling himself president while not being one. In one second, when they needed alternative energy resources, their previous decisions were pushed aside, forgotten and trampled (remember all their statements that they would never recognise the current government in Caracas).

..................................
No one is going to listen to their statements threatening new packages of sanctions, citing some lofty ideas about values ​​and ideals – or take them seriously – anymore.

The West isn’t fit for the role of the arbiter of the fate of the world. It has no potential or moral right. We would like to once again point out that Russian leaders have a clear strategic understanding of the situation and what needs to be done, on a system-wide basis, to protect the Russian economy from external pressure. We are working persistently on the implementation of existing plans. If necessary, the government will adapt these plans to the changing conditions, as it has repeatedly stated.

Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Ukrainian Armed Forces’ strikes on residential areas of Belgorod and Kursk

3 July 2022 14:36

The goal of the Kiev regime is to strike the residential areas of cities with unguided weapons. This is far from the first time something similar has happened.

We understand that these actions of the regime in Kiev were not only agreed upon with its western superintendents but were also most likely prompted by them. They do this to force us into striking back in a similar fashion so they can carry on hyping their anti-Russian hysteria.

We have abstained from making such steps, but we will be monitoring these developments very carefully. Those who have been acting in this fashion should be aware that they will have to pay if these provocations continue.

The Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation holds a conference call with the leadership of the Armed Forces

05.07.2022 (13:00)



National Centre for State Defence Control of the Russian Federation, under the leadership of the head of the military Department, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, holds a teleconference with the leadership of the Armed Forces

Opening the meeting, the Minister of Defence briefed the participants on the progress of the special military operation.

The Russian Armed Forces, together with units of the Lugansk and Donetsk people's republics' militias, have fully liberated the Lugansk People's Republic. In the past two weeks alone, 670 square kilometres of its territory have been liberated.

At the same time, according to Sergei Shoigu, the collective West, hoping to prolong the conflict in Ukraine, continues large-scale arms deliveries to the Kiev regime. More than 28,000 tonnes of military supplies have already been delivered to the country. Some foreign arms supplied by the West to Ukraine are reportedly spreading across the Middle East region and also reaching the black market.

A successful offensive by the Russian army and units of the people's republics has reduced the number of foreign mercenaries and private military companies operating in the country. In the last ten days, 170 mercenaries have been killed, 99 have refused to take part in hostilities and have left Ukrainian territory.

A range of measures are being implemented to ensure the safety of navigation in the waters of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The Russian Armed Forces have created two humanitarian corridors for the movement of civilian maritime vessels. The mine threat in the waters of the port of Mariupol has been completely eliminated.

Engineering troops are clearing mines and explosives from the territories of the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics. More than 3,700 hectares have now been checked. 46,379 explosive objects have been detected and deactivated.

Russian troops are providing comprehensive support to the population of the liberated cities. "Today, the main priorities for us are preserving the lives and health of subordinate personnel and excluding threats to the security of civilians," said Sergei Shoigu, adding that the special military operation will continue until the tasks set by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief have been completed.

Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on the regular report by the Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine

5 July 2022 19:08

We were perplexed by the regular report by the Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMU) that is entitled “Situation of human rights in Ukraine in the context of the armed attack by the Russian Federation.”

We believe the drafting of this document is beyond the HRMMU’s mandate because neither the UN Human Rights Council, nor the UN General Assembly instructed this monitoring mission to report on this issue. We consider untenable its references to the resolutions adopted by the HRC and the UN General Assembly at the prompting of Kiev and its Western patrons to justify this “study.”

We would like to remind our readers that the HRMMU was established in 2014 on the basis of a bilateral memorandum of understanding between Kiev and the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights with a view to helping Ukraine resolve its human rights issues. However, during its eight-year presence in Ukraine, this mission has focused on justifying Kiev’s punitive actions and glaring violations of the human rights of the people in southeast Ukraine.

The theme and content of yet another HRMMU “study” dots all the i’s and crosses all the t’s. It is obvious that its experts are acting in favour of their financial and political supporters and are therefore not interested in revealing the real reasons behind the crude and extensive human rights violations in Ukraine.

Despite the enormous volume of photo and video evidence, and documented testimonies of the victims and eye witnesses to the atrocities committed by the Kiev regime, and the nationalist battalions under its command, against civilians, the HRMMU’s reluctance to give a clear-cut and objective assessment of the events in Ukraine not only undermines trust in this mechanism but it also discredits the work of the United Nations as a whole.

In this context, we once again demand that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and her office give up their biased and politicised approaches to their activities and fulfil their mandate honestly and without bias, and strictly follow the letter and spirit of the UN Charter.
