MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. The Russian military has fulfilled all orders given by supreme commander Vladimir Putin last year to ensure security in Crimea, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Monday during a TV bridge connecting Moscow and Sevastopol Bay.
"A year ago… our supreme commander led large-scale serious and incredibly important work," Shoigu said, adding that "of course, we tried to fulfill all orders given to us."
The minister thanked the Russian military for their endurance, dedication and devotion. "Of course, I’d like to thank all those who, during that difficult time, never questioned a single word or any single move by our supreme commander," Shoigu said.
