Why Ukraine Matters To Russia?
The Kremlin claimed on February 24 (2022) that the Russian military destroyed 74 Ukrainian military facilities, including 11 air bases. The Russian Defence Ministry also confirmed the loss of a Su-25 attack jet due to pilot error. The Indian Express daily reported that Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered his soldiers to treat the Ukrainian servicemen “with respect”, and offer those, who lay down their weapons, safe corridors.
Reuters quoted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy as saying that as many as 40 Ukrainian soldiers and around 10 civilians were killed by Russian shelling. The president claimed that Ukraine gunned down around 50 Russian occupiers, without providing details. The casualties are the latest in a series of fast-paced developments that began when Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a military operation in Ukraine early on February 24. Following his invasion order, explosions were reported in several areas of Ukraine and air sirens went off in Kiev, indicating that the capital city was under attack.
