RUSSIA’S President, Vladimir Putin, spoke in a rare public appearance and has vowed to continue the invasion of Ukraine until “noble” aims are fulfilled.

Mr Putin‘s comments were his first on the conflict in more than a week.

He was visiting a space facility in eastern Russia with Belarusian leader Aleksandr Lukashenko, to mark the 61st anniversary of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first man in space.

There, the Russian leader claimed he had been left with no choice but to launch the invasion in a bid to protect Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine.

“Our task is to fulfil and achieve all the goals set, minimising losses. And we will act rhythmically, calmly, according to the plan originally proposed by the General Staff,” Putin said on Tuesday during a televised news conference.

Asked if the operation in Ukraine would achieve its goals, Putin said, “Absolutely. I don’t have any doubt at all.”

“Its goals are absolutely clear and noble,” Putin said. “There is no doubt that the goals will be achieved.”

“That blitzkrieg on which our foes were counting on did not work,” Putin added.
