Shoigu spoke about the course of the operation in Ukraine. Russian military liberated a significant part of the territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics along the left bank of the Seversky Donets, the head of the Ministry of Defense noted
Russia opened road traffic to Crimea on the mainland and created conditions for the resumption of rail links with the Donbas and the territory of Ukraine in six sections. This was announced on Tuesday by the head of the Russian Defense Ministry Sergei Shoigu at a conference call in the department.
According to the minister, the Russian military has completely liberated the residential areas of Severodonetsk and a significant part of the territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics along the left bank of the Seversky Donets, and the ports of Berdyansk and Mariupol are ready to ship grain, which was previously proposed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
TASS collected the main statements of Shoigu.
About the corridor to Crimea
"Automobile communication has been opened from the territory of Russia along the mainland to the Crimea," the minister said. Previously, it was possible to get to the peninsula from the main part of the Russian territory only through the Crimean bridge across the Kerch Strait.
In addition, conditions have been created for the resumption of full-fledged railway traffic between Russia, Donbas, and the territory of Ukraine in six sections. "We started delivering goods to Mariupol, Berdyansk, and Kherson," Shoigu said, adding that a total of 1,200 km of railways had been restored.
About the ports of Berdyansk and Mariupol
The Russian military, the minister recalled, completed the demining of the port of Mariupol: "It is functioning normally and has received the first cargo ships." In addition, the seaport of Berdyansk, located in the liberated territories of the Zaporizhzhia region, began to work.
"On behalf of the Supreme Commander, we are ready to load grain in these ports," Shoigu added.
Last Friday, Putin proposed to organize the export of Ukrainian grain without any conditions through ports controlled by the Russian side, that is, Berdyansk and Mariupol. Russia, he said, is ready to ensure the entry of foreign ships and their movement along the Azov and Black Seas in any direction and guarantees the safety of approaches to these ports.
About promotion in Donbass
Russian forces have liberated a significant part of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics on the left bank of the Seversky Donets, including the cities of Krasny Liman and Svyatogorsk, the Defense Minister said.
"The residential quarters of the city of Severodonetsk have been completely liberated. The control of its industrial zone and nearby settlements continues," the minister added.
In addition, an offensive is developing in the Pasta direction. The city of Popasnaya in the Lugansk People's Republic itself came under Russian control in early May, and 97% of the territory of the LPR has already been liberated.
About the economy in the liberated territories
In the territories that came under the control of the people's republics during the military operation, the uninterrupted operation of 33 coal mines, and two oil, and 14 gas fields have been established. In addition, 57% of the capacities of Ukrainian metallurgy are concentrated there.
"The largest in Europe Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is operating in normal mode, which is capable of generating up to half of all nuclear generation capacities in Ukraine," Shoigu said.
At the same time, he recalled, during the retreat, the Ukrainian military "seek to cause maximum damage" to the economy, while the Russian forces "take industrial facilities under their protection, thereby maintaining the potential for development."
About Ukrainian losses
The total number of Ukrainian soldiers who have surrendered, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, has reached 6,489. In the last five days alone, 126 people have surrendered, Shoigu said.
At the same time, he did not provide data on the killed and wounded servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the law enforcement agencies of this country.
Speaking about the destruction of military equipment supplied to Kyiv from abroad, the minister noted that over the past ten days, 21 155 mm howitzers, 16 drones, 12 armored vehicles, and two multiple rocket launchers have been destroyed.
