Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in fresh statements made to reporters
has said the Untied States in waging war against Russia through the
Ukraine proxy war.
Lavrov in the Russian-language comments
described that Washington is not only transferring some $100 billion in
military aid to Kiev, but is actually controlling its decision-making.
He further said this is in order to try and inflict a “strategic defeat” on Russia.
The top Russian diplomat was speaking on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum on Sunday morning. “No matter what it says, it [the US] controls this war,
it supplies weapons, munition, intelligence information, data from
satellites, it is pursuing a war against us,” he said, according to a
“While what is going on is that Ukraine has been prepared, has long been prepared for inflicting strategic defeat to Russia using its hands and its bodies,” Lavrov emphasized.
in prior comments Friday had said the US is also waging a global effort
to isolate Moscow, and that this was the intent of the recent
Saudi-hosted Ukraine peace summit.
“There is a real plot around
the topic of the so-called (peace) negotiations, as well as attempts to
turn everything upside down through pseudo diplomacy,” he said Friday. He explained:
West has been saying for months that this ‘peace formula’ is the only
basis for negotiations. It starts from innocent topics … and then comes
to the purpose for which it was concocted – inflicting a strategic
defeat on Russia, to restore the borders of Ukraine as they were in
1991, court-martial the Russian leadership, force Russia to pay
reparations, and then ‘mercifully’ agree to sign a peace agreement.”
He then suggested it’s a pattern in dealing with other countries as well: “These
are exactly the dirty methods that the West uses not only in relation
to Ukraine but in many other areas of global politics,” Lavrov stated.
the White House appears to be on the cusp of approving long-range
missiles, the ATACMS, which has a range of 190 miles.
Getting oil prices down and giving the Ukrainians US blessing to hit targets hundreds of miles inside Russia are mutually exclusive policy goals.
This appears to be lost on Blinken…for now.
Don’t be surprised when Putin makes this obvious enough that even Blinken can see it. https://t.co/nTwRR8LI59

yet, dangerously, it’s become quite clear in the last several months
that Ukraine will continue seeking to strike cities and bases inside
Russia. New long-range missiles from Washington will without doubt make
this easier for Kiev to do, risking more severe escalation which could
eventually see direct Russia-NATO clashes.
