Moscow, SANA- The Russian special military operation to protect Donbass may end “before the end of today,” if the Ukrainian forces lay down their weapons, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
Novoski quoted Dmitry as saying that “We orient ourselves on the statements made by our President Vladimir Putin that the special military operation proceeds according to the plan and achieves its goals.”
When asked if the Russian side had set a timeframe for the end of the special operation, Peskov answered in a negative.
“No,” he said.
“The Ukrainian side can end all this before the end of this day; an order is necessary for the nationalist units to lay down their weapons, an order is necessary for the Ukrainian military to lay down their weapons; and they must fulfill all Russia’s demands. Then everything will be over before the day ends,” the spokesman said, commenting on Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s remark that he would like to end the special military operation before the cold comes.
