Lavrov said that Luhansk and Donetsk are not longer the sole objective of the Special Military Operation; other areas are also now an objective. He did not specify which areas, but observers suggest that everything east of the Dnieper River . . . meaning the entire eastern half of what is now Ukraine, may now be the actual objective.
Lavrov also said “If the West continues to supply Kiev with longer-range weapons, the geographical objectives of the special operation in Ukraine will move even further than they just have.”
