Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday If it depended on Moscow, there would be no war referring to the situation in Ukraine The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the United States (US) faced military expansion towards the border with Russia.
“We do not want war, but we will not allow our interests to be ignored,” the foreign minister told a news conference with local media, in which he addressed issues of the Kremlin’s foreign policy.
The head of Russian diplomacy reiterated that there would be no war if he relied on his role, but did not deny that “someone wants to provoke military action.”
“The Kiev regime did not control a large number of troops (according to the West, about 100,000 in the contact line, I think), and the Kiev regime did not control the majority of these armed men,” he said.
“Ex-Volunteer Battalions, current Regional Defense Forces, popular opposition units (…) important parts of existing units (…) are already provided with anti-aircraft systems and are encouraged to carry hunting rifles because there are not enough systems. Everyone: This is a military Psychiatry, “he added.
Lavrov said the United States was using Ukrainian President Vladimir Zhelensky to provoke tensions with Russia. “Zhelensky and his regime were first used by the United States to increase tensions by attracting their Cossacks to Europe.
As pointed out by the Russian Foreign Minister The main purpose of the United States in this matter is not Ukrainian rule, Because “it is important for them to increase tensions around the Russian Federation, to close the issue and then deal with China,” American political analysts themselves write.
Also, this road is not going anywhere. He described the West’s response to the security guarantees demanded by the Kremlin in the face of military expansion on the shared border with Ukraine as “dark”.
“In the context of the NATO document, the US response is almost a paradigm of diplomatic dignity. NATO’s response is very ideological, it ‘breathes’ the uniqueness of the Atlantic Alliance, its special mission, I’m a little ashamed.”
Sergei Lavrov announced Moscow is examining the response of the West and recalls President Vladimir Putin’s statements on possible countermeasures.
He stressed that Moscow needed a clear response from the West on security guarantees and that there were no excuses. “Why have Western nations not fulfilled their commitments to secession of security and not ignored our interests, even if they have been so explicitly and explicitly stated?” He asked.
This Friday, the Russian minister plans to send a request to Western countries to fulfill their obligations in the organization. He points out that if new sanctions are imposed on Russian leaders, relations with the United States will break down.
