"Special operation in Ukraine will be continued until tasks put forward by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief are fully implemented," said Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, APA reports.

He said that the West continues to supply large-scale weapons to Kyiv to prolong the conflict in Ukraine. According to Shoigu, part of the weapons given to Ukraine by the West goes to the Middle East and the "black market".

The Russian defense minister noted that over the last 10 days, 170 foreign mercenaries were destroyed in Ukraine. 99 left Ukraine refusing to participate in battle operations.
