On Ukraine’s Independence Day, Shoigu says Russia deliberately slowing down their “special military operation”

24 AUGUST 2022

On Ukraine’s Independence Day, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu repeated his statement that the Russian Federation was allegedly deliberately decreasing the pace of the offensive in Ukraine in order to minimise civilian casualties.

Source: Russian propaganda TV channel RT and Kremlin-aligned media outlet RIA Novosti, citing Shoigu’s statement at a meeting of defence ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization on 24 August 

Quote from Shoigu: “During the special operation, we strictly observe the norms of humanitarian law. Attacks are carried out with high–precision weapons on the military infrastructure of the Ukrainian Armed Forces: command posts, airfields, warehouses, fortified areas, facilities of the military-industrial complex. At the same time, everything possible is done to avoid casualties among the civilian population. Of course, this slows down the pace of the offensive, but we’re doing it consciously.”

Details: The Russian Defence Minister also lied that the Russian military “was systematically working on establishing peaceful life in the liberated territories.” According to Shoigu, the invaders allegedly provide humanitarian aid and restore infrastructure and public utilities.

At the same time, he added that the Ukrainian troops are allegedly “using scorched earth tactics, blatantly violating international norms and acting like terrorists.”

Moreover, the supply of weapons by the West to Ukraine, according to Shoigu, allegedly “multiplies the number of casualties and prolongs the military conflict on the territory of this country.”

The Russian Defence Minister also said that “Kyiv, for fear of revealing evidence, deals with its own soldiers who surrender.”



  1. Let’s all have a round of raucous laughter!
    Seriously now, the slowdown is absolutely involuntary. It’s solely due to Ukraine’s successful attacks on the cockroach army’s ammo dumps, fuel depots, transportation system and command posts. The cockroach army is being crippled. Period.

    • Wasn’t it Shoigu that came out a couple of weeks ago and publicly order the war criminals to apply maximum pressure in all directions?
      He’s just a bit away from surrendering himself or hiding in Vladolf’s nazi bunker.
