Being updated
In February, Russia began a military operation in Ukraine responding to calls for help from the people's republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.
On Monday, Russia's President Vladimir Putin, at a meeting with the Russian Security Council, confirmed that Moscow conducted precision strikes on infrastructure facilities across Ukraine earlier in the day in an apparent response to a terrorist attack against the Crimean Bridge that took place last week.
Putin pointed out that the terrorist attack against the bridge that links the Crimean Peninsula to mainland Russia was designed to destroy Russian civilian infrastructure. According to him, Kiev has put itself on a par with the most odious terrorist groups, and it is impossible to leave the crimes of the Kiev regime unanswered any longer.

"Observers" of the G7 countries will become legitimate targets for the Russian military should they be sent to Ukraine, a source in Moscow has told Sputnik.

On Tuesday, Volodymyr Zelensky called on G7 countries to deploy international observers on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border to monitor the security situation.

"If the G7 countries, which are already taking part in the conflict by providing Kiev with arms, intelligence, and warfare guidance, and training Ukrainian fighters, if they respond positively to Zelensky's request to send observers to Ukraine, it will permanently consolidate their status as a party to the conflict and make the so-called observers legitimate military targets," the source said.

The United States does not see statements made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that Russia is open to holding talks on Ukraine as constructive or genuine, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a press briefing on Tuesday.
