Vladimir Putin says Russian anti-aircraft forces are “breaking like nuts” weapons supplied to Ukraine by other states.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Russian anti-aircraft forces have shot down and crushed dozens of weapons supplied to Ukraine by other states, according to a small excerpt from Rossia-1’s interview aired on Saturday. .

Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency first aired the allegations, and Vladimir Putin responded to a question about weapons supplied to Ukraine by other countries. According to Putin, Russia is doing well with these weapons and has already destroyed dozens.

Russia has repeatedly said it destroyed both Ukraine-launched aircraft and missiles, although the exact type of weapons were not mentioned in the area released on Saturday.

The first part of Putin’s interview was aired on Friday and the other on Sunday, according to TASS. A television station announcement said Putin would answer questions about US arms supplies to Ukraine, Reuters quoted Agerpres as saying.

Russia launched a major offensive against Ukraine on February 24, citing the need to protect the Russian-speaking population of the eastern region of Donbass, which had been partially controlled by pro-Russian separatists since 2014, initially backed by Moscow.

According to Moscow, this is a “reduction” of Ukrainian power, whose pro-Western policy has been perceived as a threat by the Russian regime for many years.

However, the Russian offensive against Kiev failed, and Russian forces are now concentrated in the Donbass, the scene of heavy fighting for weeks. The Russians are advancing very slowly and with great difficulty in the face of Ukrainian opposition.
