“We are not pursuing any deadlines (with the operation in Ukraine),” Interfax on May 24 quoted Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev as telling reporters. “All the goals set by the President of Russia will be accomplished. It cannot be otherwise.”

According to Patrushev, Russia does not aim to occupy Ukrainian territory and “the fate of Ukraine will be decided by those who live on that territory”. “We do not control the fate of sovereign states,” he added.

Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24 with the goal of “de-militarizing and de-fascistizing” the neighboring country, and at the same time helping the two self-proclaimed breakaway republics that Russia recognizes in the East. Ukraine extends its constitutional control of the territory.

After three months of hostilities, Ukraine lost control of most of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in the Donbass, Kherson Oblast and parts of the southern coast. Fighting has recently escalated rapidly in the last major cities still under Kiev’s control in Donetsk and Lugansk.

In a related development, Sputnik quoted the leader of the military-civilian government in Kherson province, Kirill Stremousov, on May 24 as saying that the locality would ask Russia to set up a military base to protect people. people at risk of being attacked by extremist nationalists.

Stremousov also confirmed that Russian, along with Ukrainian, will become the official language in Kherson. This locality had previously switched to using the Russian ruble and proposed to be incorporated into Russia.
