"Nothing can be ruled out here. If you need to get to Kiev, then you need to go to Kiev, if you need to go to Lviv, then you need to go to Lviv in order to eradicate this infection," he said.

Medvedev also said that it was incorrect to talk about the timing of the special operation. He explained that the Supreme Commander-in-Chief can give assessments of the course and timing of the special operation.

In addition, the deputy chairman of the Security Council called a legitimate target for the Russian army foreign specialists, whom the West sends to Ukraine along with weapons.

Medvedev added that the consequences of the use of weapons with depleted uranium can be very serious.

Earlier, the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China in a joint statement called responsible dialogue the best way for a sustainable settlement of the crisis in Ukraine.
