Exclusive interview with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the war in Ukraine

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov speaks during a news conference in Moscow, Russia April 8, 2022.

According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the current situation in Ukraine is a direct result of the US and West’s desire to rule and dominate the world.

In the attached exclusive interview with India Today‘s Foreign Affairs Editor Geeta Mohan, Minster Lavrov talks about the reasons for Russia’s military action in Ukraine. This is an excellent, well executed interview – nothing like the one-sided factless propaganda of the Western mass media.

Lavrov said, “The current events are rooted in the US and West’s desire to rule the world. They wanted to show the world there would be no multipolarity, only unipolarity, and created a springboard [Ukraine] against us [Russia] at our borders. They pumped arms into Ukraine.” He added, “The real reason [for the war] is the complacency of most countries after World War II. They violated their promises to the Russian leadership and started moving NATO eastward after the Soviet Union disappeared. They said it’s a defensive alliance and not a threat to Russian security.”

In this excellent 56 minute video interview, Minister Lavrov astutely and clearly explains (in very good English) the circumstances of the Ukraine crisis and how it has arisen.
