In July, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov acknowledged that the “geographical objectives” of the “special operation” had changed due to the supply of Western weapons to Ukraine. According to Lavrov, now the tasks include not only the “DPR” and “LPR”, but also the Kherson, Zaporozhye regions and a number of other territories. According to him, tasks will be moved further from the current line as the West supplies Ukraine with long-range weapons.
