"We are confident that all the goals set by the supreme commander-in-chief before our armed forces will be completely attained. We will never give up, won’t back up," he added.

The ambassador noted that the goals and tasks of Russia’s special military operation are clearly defined. "All that we want is the absence of any threat for the Russian Federation from Ukrainian soil," he noted.

The envoy pointed out that the US is being drawn deeper into the conflict with unpredictable consequences. "Nevertheless, nowadays the situation is highly dangerous.
