Russia’s former deputy foreign minister Andrei Fedorov has said Putin is aiming for a full victory by March 2.

Speaking to Al Jazeera’s Start Here, Fedorov said “everything will depend frankly speaking on the coming two days because, according to my knowledge, Putin orders for complete military operation with a victory by March 2.”

Fedorov added that Moscow was taken aback by Ukraine’s fierce resistance and by the decision on the part of European states – who are largely dependent on Russian gas – to impose harsh sanctions.

[These measures have] caused a lot of problems over here now,” he said.
