President Putin Holds Meeting With Russian Security Council
On 24 February, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine in order to halt Kiev's eight-year-long conflict in Donbas which has claimed up to 14,000 lives. President Putin stressed that Kiev's actions amounted to genocide, noting that Russia's goal is the demilitarisation and denazification of the country.
Sputnik is live from Moscow, where President Vladimir Putin chairs a meeting with permanent members of the Russian Security Council via a videoconference call.
The president is expected to address various security issues, including the ongoing special military operation in Ukraine, which was launched by Russia back in February.
