Instead, it was described – echoing Putin’s orders – as a “special military operation” to protect the Donbas by “demilitarizing” and “piloting” Ukraine.

The ministry said today the depth of the offensive into Ukraine was 52 kilometers – or 32 miles.

The ministry has so far not announced any deaths from fighting in Ukraine.
