“Various weapons are sent to Ukraine through Poland and other NATO countries in an endless stream. All this is done under the pretext of ‘fighting the invasion’, but in fact, the United States and the European Union intend to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian, and they are absolutely indifferent to the fate of Ukraine as an independent subject of international relations” – Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (30.04.2022).
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is clearly bending the ideals and such, which is in frame with the rhetoric of late. While Russians are allowed to wage war on a sovereign nation like Ukraine, the West and United States isn’t allowed in their minds to support and aide the Ukrainian forces. That is really hypocrisy, as the Kremlin and Moscow is allowing itself to impose itself on Ukraine, but the West is just supposed to look idly by. While Russians are conducting atrocities, war-crimes is continuing within Ukraine.
The Russians are acting like victims, which is disgusting. Knowingly the way they are sending missiles on civilian targets, the way they are burying civilians in mass-graves, torturing and raping innocent civilians. That’s why I am staunch supporter of both humanitarian and military aide to Ukraine. As the imperial forces of Russia is coming there to violate and occupy more territory. In such a manner to carve and annex more territory.
It is ironic that Lavrov speaks of the independence of Ukraine. As the Russians are violating that… and the Russians are not even concerned about the nationhood or statehood of Ukraine. The Russian Federation and the one spelling out the propaganda for the regime has told this. The Russian President stated this and mocked Ukraine as well. Therefore, we know the real deal and the only thing Russia wants is… to bleed the Ukrainian state out and conquer it.
The Russian-Belorussian invasion wants to shed no tears and continue the bloodshed, as long as possible and install a puppet in Kyiv. That is the given and no one should be shocked by that. The talk of independence and democracy coming from Russia is foolish. As they are run by a dictator and a President for Life. The same is their ally in Minsk. Therefore, the Kremlin wants a silent cadre and a loyal soldier in Kyiv. They don’t want someone who turns to the West or Europe. Alas, the main reason for the war in the first place.
So it doesn’t get better when Lavrov also says this:
“We witness the manifestation of classic double standards and hypocrisy of the Western establishment at present. Publicly expressing support to the Kiev regime, NATO countries are doing everything to prevent completion of the operation by way of reaching political agreements” (Lavrov, 30.04.2022).
The Western Nations and NATO is only helping a nation with self-defence and with humanitarian assistance. While Russia would prefer to do it all by themselves and annihilate Ukraine without anyone seeing or helping Kyiv. That is the initial gist I am getting. Lavrov and Kremlin is feeling bad that the warfare is taking to long time.
Russian speaks of hypocrisy, but the way and the manner they are talking in this war is the same. They speak of the independence of Ukraine and as a sovereign. While they are working on overtime to invade and conquer it. The Russians aren’t adhering to the Budapest Memorandum and neither did Russians respect the Minsk Agreement. So, the Kremlin and President Putin should study these agreements before pointing their fingers at the West or Kyiv. They are the ones aiding separatists, waging war and annexing territory in Ukraine.
That’s why Lavrov and such just wants to bleed Ukraine out. That seems to be their mission and how they operate. Since they are warning and talking ill of anyone supporting or aiding Kyiv. Peace.
