S.V. Lavrov’s interview with Newsweek magazine, September 21, 2022…

#Ukraine

🔹 The United States and its allies are ready to sacrifice Ukraine for the sake of their geopolitical goals. Washington is not interested in establishing peace and tranquility in Ukraine.

#RussiaUSA

🔹 Russian-American interstate dialogue is practically frozen due to the fault of the United States. It is objectively impossible to maintain normal communication with Washington, which declares the infliction of a strategic defeat on Russia as a goal.

#Sanctions

🔹 It was not possible to shake the Russian economy. Moreover, the sanctions have proved to be a double-edged sword: many European countries are experiencing rising prices and falling incomes, energy shortages and threats of social explosions.

#RussiaChina

🔹 Strategic partnership with China remains an absolute priority of Russian foreign policy. Together with our Chinese friends, we will continue to work to improve the situation in the world and promote the formation of a fair multipolar system.

#World order

🔹 The modern world is no longer Western-centric. Today, strong, independent players from among the developing countries have been formed and are increasingly declaring themselves. These states and their integration associations do not want to participate in the anti-Russian “crusade” inspired by Washington.
