Russia seeks to end US-dominated world order – Lavrov

Washington acts based on ad-hoc rules that violate international law, foreign minister claims.

Russia’s military action in Ukraine is meant to put an end to the US-dominated world order, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has explained. Washington has been seeking supremacy by imposing ad-hoc rules and violating international law, he claimed, in an interview aired by Russian television on Monday.

He was referring to America’s attempts to impose its own so-called “rules-based international order,” which have met with strong resistance from Moscow and China.

“Our special military operation is meant to put an end to the unabashed expansion [of NATO] and the unabashed drive towards full domination by the US and its Western subjects on the world stage,” Lavrov told Rossiya 24 news channel.

“This domination is built on gross violations of international law and under some rules, which they are now hyping so much and which they make up on a case-by-case basis,” he added.

Russia is among the nations who would not submit to Washington’s will, the Russian diplomat added. It will only be part of an international community of equals and will not allow Western nations to ignore its legitimate security concerns, Lavrov said.

Lavrov blasted EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell for appearing to encourage more fighting in Ukraine. The bloc’s top diplomat said the conflict “will be won on the battlefield” as he announced more military aid to Kiev last Saturday. Lavrov called the statement “outrageous.”

“When a diplomatic chief … says a certain conflict can only be resolved through military action… Well, it must be something personal. He either misspoke or spoke without thinking, making a statement that nobody asked him to make. But it’s an outrageous remark,” Lavrov added.

The EU’s role has shifted during the Ukraine security crisis, the minister believes. Previously it didn’t act as a military organization “fighting collectively against an invented threat.” Lavrov said the change was the result of pressure put on the bloc’s members by Washington, which has pushed it closer to NATO.

For its part, Russia wants to negotiate peace with Ukraine, Lavrov added.

Moscow attacked its neighbor in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements signed in 2014, and Russia’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics in Donetsk and Lugansk. The German and French brokered protocols had been designed to regularize the status of those regions within the Ukrainian state.

Russia has now demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.

  1. Kudos. It has to start with non-dollar, non-Euro trade. West is currently financing with the stolen money from Russia (foreign reserves, russian assests seized etc) which is close to trillion USD. Globalist increased their profits with huge price increases and some of which will flow through to finance the war through loans etc. Clown Boris, who cant look after his own citizens, has promised 500 billion dollars to Ukarine. West has launched a hybrid war, and the current situation is an existential threat to Russia.

    The lying MSM is foooling the Western public. Another American of Fortune currently in Ukraine fooled by the MSM

  2. The US is desperately trying to escalate the Ukraine action into a world war. If it cannot achieve this target it will lose everything. Its actions are seen now for what they are. Drug pushing, anti-freedom terrorists.

  3. So glad other people are awake to what is really happening.

    The media are liars. The US leaders are the problem. Zelensky is a US plant and he has sold out Ukrainian people. I read somewhere he owns a mansion in Florida – is this true? Washington has sold out the US people, it’s a cesspit of lies, corruption and hypocrisy funded and run by the pharmaceutical industry underpinned with money from the Rockefellers dating back to the conception of their ‘foundation’.

    The Minsk agreement should be honoured. Putin is being quite measured really. He has had a long time to plan this all after seeing how his country has been treated by the West. Used when convenient. Putin knows their plans for their UN and US funded New World Order because he attended the WEF meetings and now he is using that knowledge to make sure they don’t get their way. Either that or he is in on the plan and we are all stuffed. I prefer to think the former.

    Meanwhile what’s happening in China and why are they closing ports and locking up and starving their people? Are they part of the NWO or are they all out for themselves? So hard to know. Just like a giant chess game and the people of the worlds countries are the pawns. May we all rise and make these corrupt and selfish leaders pay for their greed.
