Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said this Friday (05.05.2023) that the alleged drone attack against the Kremlin could not have taken place without the knowledge of the United States, and warned that his country will respond with “concrete actions Washington vehemently denied any link to the alleged attack, as did Ukraine.
“We are going to answer no with comments on whether or not it is a ‘casus belli’,” said the minister of the country that invaded Ukraine in February 2022. “We will respond with concrete actions,” added the head of Russian diplomacy in a conference press in Goa, India, where he is attending a ministerial meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
Lavrov stressed that the alleged drone attack on the Kremlin was a “hostile act” and that “it is completely clear that without the knowledge of their masters, (kyiv) could not have perpetrated it.” Let us remember that for the Moscow regime the President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelensky, and his government are an instrument of the United States and its allies.
It is not solved by freezing
Putin’s minister indicated that “Zelenski and his team do everything in the media space and with steps so that every self-respecting country does not want to talk to them (…) This is so, and we understand that awareness of it is maturing” , and insisted that the conflict cannot be resolved by freezing the front in Donbas since “everyone understands the geopolitical nature of what is happening.”
According to Lavrov, without resolving the main geopolitical problem, which he defined as the desire of the West to maintain its hegemony and “dictate its will to everyone”, no crisis can be resolved, “neither in Ukraine nor in other parts of the world”. “We have never refused to solve the problems that have arisen as a result of the actions of the United States and its proxies in cramming Ukraine with weapons for its confrontation with Russia,” he said.
Russia said Wednesday it had intercepted two Ukrainian drones launched Tuesday night at the Kremlin, and denounced an attempt to assassinate President Vladimir Putin. On Thursday, the Kremlin, through its spokesman Dmitri Peskov, accused the United States of having sponsored this alleged attack. Washington immediately reacted by denouncing a “lie” and denying any involvement.
