Moscow says change of government in Kyiv not one of its aims

A change of the Ukrainian government is not one of the goals of Russia’s “special operation,” according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.


“Russia is striving to achieve its goals in the special military operation, and these goals can be achieved in different ways,” Peskov told journalists Monday.


CNN asked Peskov about comments made by Russian Senator Konstantin Kosachev, who said that a normalization of relations with Ukraine could only happen if there was “regime change.”


When pressed if a change of power in Ukraine was one of the goals of the special operation, Peskov said: “No.”
