Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, has made a startling declaration regarding Russia's military objectives in Ukraine.

In a statement on Telegram, he affirmed that Russia's so-called special operation aims to continue, with its goals including the disarmament of Ukrainian forces and the rejection of neo-Nazism by the current Ukrainian state.

Expansion of Military Targets

Medvedev also stated that Russia intends to capture additional Ukrainian cities, specifically naming Odessa, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, and Kyiv.

He referred to these cities as "Russian cities, like many others temporarily occupied," currently marked in yellow and blue on maps and electronic tablets.
