Lavrov: Russian Special Operation in Ukraine Aims to Put End to US Course for World Domination
"Our special military operation is designed to put an end to the reckless expansion and reckless course towards complete domination by the United States and, under them, the remainder of Western countries on the world stage. This domination is built with egregious violations of international law, and in accordance with some [unclear] rules, which are imposed on occasion", Lavrov said in an interview with the broadcaster Rossiya 24.
"This is an utterly serious change, even in the policy that the EU and the West under US leadership - there is no doubt about it - began to pursue after the start of our special military operation. A policy that reflects anger, in some ways even frenzy, and which, of course, is determined not only by [the situation in] Ukraine, but by Ukraine being transformed into a foothold for the final suppression of Russia", the minister noted.
"The provocations, I think, are outrageous. As for Bucha, our military presented both chronological arguments, and arguments related to the video materials, and arguments related, excuse me for the details, to the position of the corpses and their appearance. Everything that is possible, was presented", he said.
"If Bucha continues to be played in some way for several weeks, then Kramatorsk was somehow silenced very quickly. Apparently, evidence presented right there, on the same day, including ballistic facts and a number of others, including the absence of Tochka U in our service", he said.
