Russian Duma speaker: Ukraine pushing Moscow to expand its military goals - RIA
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian parliament speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said on Tuesday Ukraine is doing "everything" to ensure Moscow's troops would not halt their "military special operation" on the borders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People's Republic (LPR ) in eastern Ukraine, the RIA Novosti agency reported.
Moscow on Sunday demanded the "liberation" of the entire LPR on the territory of Ukraine's Luhansk province and is continuing its campaign to wrest the adjacent DPR - Ukraine's Donetsk province - from Kyiv's control.
But his forces have also seized the city of Kherson and much of the Kherson and Zaporizhia regions of southern Ukraine, bombing targets across Ukraine and launching a failed advance on the capital, Kyiv.
