The West is an “empire of lies,” and American and European countries are not living up to their obligations. This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the general political discussion of the 78th session of the UN General embly, T writes.
“Accustomed to looking down on the rest of the world, Americans and Europeans often make promises, undertake obligations, including written and legally binding ones, and then simply do not fulfill them. As the President noted [России] Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, the West is a real “empire of lies,” Lavrov said.
The minister added that a “new world order” is now emerging, and “the contours of the future are being created in the struggle between the global majority” and “those few who use neo-colonial methods of subjugation.” According to him, the “calling card” of the West has become the rejection of the principle of equality and “total inability to negotiate.”
On September 20, Lavrov at a meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in Ukraine emphasized that the risks of a global conflict are increasing.
On September 8, Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a meeting with young scientists in Sarov, said that the West deliberately provoked the conflict in Ukraine in order to limit Russia’s economic growth.
In mid-August, the president noted that in regions of the world there are “smoldering hotbeds of tension,” which have their own characteristics, but all of them are generated by the actions of the West. In the fall of 2022, Putin stated that in recent months Western countries have taken steps aimed at aggravating the situation in the world. According to Putin, “they always play for aggravation.”
