Shoigu emphasized that Russia will achieve its desired goals this year.
To achieve this goal, Russia continues to increase its combat power, including the supply of modern weapons and increased training of forces, he added.
RIA Novosti quoted Shoigu as saying: "We continue to increase military combat power, including by supplying modern weapons and improving the training of soldiers, while increasing the share of military special operations."
It was emphasized that continuing to implement the stages of the activity plan until 2025 will bring Russia to the desired goal.
As you know, the war between Russia and Ukraine, which began on February 24, 2022, is not yet over.
Both countries carried out counter-attacks, against each other's important targets.
On Friday (9/22), Ukraine launched an attack on the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters using Storm Shadow cruise missiles donated by Great Britain.
As a result of the attack, Ukraine claimed that the commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Admiral Viktor Sokolov, was killed along with 34 other officers and 105 people were injured.
However, in a video of the Russian Defense Council meeting held on Tuesday, Sokolov appeared live and briefly.
