Kremlin says military operation going to plan as Ukrainian counterattack beginsThe Kremlin has insisted that its so-called “special military operation” in Ukraine is going to plan despite the news that Kyiv’s troops have launched a long-awaited counteroffensive in the south of the country.

At his regular briefing with reporters, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov was asked to respond to Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s comments that Russian troops should flee after his military reportedly broke through several of their defences on Tuesday.

Peskov replied:

The special military operation continues, it continues methodically, and in co-ordination with the current plans. All objectives will be fulfilled.

He also commented on calls by some European leaders for a ban on tourist visas for Russians, describing the proposals as “irrational” and the latest manifestation of the west’s anti-Russian agenda.

He said Europe’s actions towards Russia were “bordering on insanity” adding:

Of course, such decisions cannot go unanswered.
