Lavrov: fundamental changes have occurred in relations between the United States and the Russian Federation

Washington is taking actions that threaten Russia's national interests. Moscow will no longer adhere to the policy of "strategic patience", recognizing that fundamental changes have taken place in relations between the two countries, reports RIA News statement by Sergey Lavrov.

The basis of the American policy towards the Russian Federation is “aggressive Russophobia”. “It’s not just rhetorical Russophobia, but concrete action by the United States. These steps affect Russian national interests and threaten security, ”said the Russian Foreign Minister.

Among such steps is “the approach of NATO to the borders of Russia and its allies, in particular, the deployment of heavy weapons, as well as sanctions, which should be considered a manifestation of hostile actions,” he said.

Moscow has long tolerated unilateral actions by Washington aimed at aggravating relations with Moscow, which began to manifest themselves long before the Ukrainian crisis. “But now it’s time to recognize that fundamental changes have taken place in the relations of the two countries,” the minister said.

In his opinion, America’s behavior is due, incl. and the fact that Washington is gradually aware of the end of its power.

Russian President Vladimir Putin in this situation behaves correctly. “I can’t remember a single time when Russian President Putin somehow disrespectfully spoke of any of his colleagues, whatever that colleague would do in regard to the Russian Federation and say,” Lavrov noted. However, in the West it has become the norm to “speak out about the Russian president in the style of“ who will surpass someone. ”

Of course, one of the main reasons for the cooling of relations between countries are differences on the Syrian issue.

“In the United States there are many groups with different views on how the situation should develop in Syria. Some are in favor of stabilization, others are against it. Therefore, the entire US position consists of patches, ”said the Foreign Minister.

“The reason for withdrawing from the agreements with Russia on Syria in Washington is abstract. The real reason lies in the fact that the United States has not fulfilled its obligations to withdraw the opposition. While the Syrian government troops retreated, their positions immediately occupied the opposition. At the same time, Washington announced that Moscow allegedly did not want to stop the fighting from which civilians suffer, ”he explained and added that Russia was used to it, and therefore continues to work.

      What masks? We have been removing these masks since Libya! For a long time, everyone understood everything.
      As I understand it, what Lavrov said is a signal that Russia is ending a restrained policy towards the West, a policy of conciliation and armistice. And from now on, he will react more actively to attacks of the West!
      And this is not a matter of masks, but the fact that the situation is becoming intolerable, and on the other hand, the time to prepare for a confrontation with the West was not in vain, Russia was about to. And the Kremlin thought it was ready to aggravate.

        Finally, we stop considering enemies as "partners". And the enemies go into hysterics even at our words. Of course - they are strong. But we have always dealt with powerful enemies. They are too used to bombing those who have nothing to answer.

        ... And the Kremlin decided that it was ready to aggravate ...
        Before embarking on this aggravation, you must first clean out your own "agiyev stables", that is. to solve the priority internal problems and to get the state money out of the states and offshore.
        But so far, one cannot see the Kremlin’s real actions in preparation for a confrontation with the West, especially in the economy with finances.
        And Putin's recent appointments sometimes cause bewilderment ... at least the appointment of Kiriyenko as the curator of domestic policy. Why a man from the "liberal Chubais herd"? Why not one of the patriotic statesmen?
        The media exaggerate "rumors" about the appointment of Dvorkovich to the head of Russian Railways ... it will already be a complete "polar scribe" !!!
        Some strange recent promotion to high and very responsible government positions of representatives of the "titular and God's chosen nation" .... all this is not good.

        Well, as if Khuseynich had already "dangled his legs." Now it is possible to fish in troubled waters in the "timelessness of the US presidential elections". Any aggressive actions of Khuseynich are a blow to the paralytic Clinton. (I caught myself thinking that I had already seen everything somewhere ...)

        I REMEMBERED !!! I remembered. In 1995, Russia chose the old new guarantor of the constitution ... The technical condition was approximately the same. There really the engine was junk, but then the on-board computer really flew ...

        Well no. On the contrary, they are preparing a provocation. To this end, the United States of the Aggressors repainted the F - 18 aircraft in the color of the Su - 34. Externally, these aircraft are similar to each other, so a provocation is 100% expected. Most likely they will bomb a quarter in Aleppo, and raise a howl about "Russian aggressors".

      A little bit about America too

      Well dear ... this is absolutely bearded propaganda. But then tell me why, for example, they have the Indians (whom everyone considered dying on the reserves) own half of the income from the gaming business in the United States? For example, the famous world chain Hard Rock Cafe bought simenols. Or why WWII veterans in the United States (who really didn’t fight) receive from 2700 $ against our 20-30 thousand rubles? In general, I think that it’s disastrous on the part of our government to give cars and apartments to hockey players and football players, and to pay a penny to a veteran, who climbed out of the country with bullets and caterpillars. Or do we live by the principle of beat our own so that strangers are afraid? The same thing with loans to the public.
      By the way, in the USA, a fixed rate is most often when lending for 30 or for 15 years. For 30 years, now the rate is 4.125%, a couple of years ago it was 3 with something, it was the lowest percentage in history. The fixed rate when concluding a loan agreement for 15 years is now 3.375%, floating - from 3.125 to 3.25%. Of course, it is clear that the United States, to put it mildly, parasitizes on other economies and countries, but they parasitize for their own good. And unlike us, they have good roads and apparently not many fools. And our so-called elite (according to which the Chekist Nagan cries), except for rowing into his pocket and accepting anti-people’s laws, knows nothing more. Ever since the collapse of the USSR, Russia has not created anything that could be proud of either socially, economically, industrially or scientifically. All our patriotism is based on the conquests of another state (USSR) and the past, of course you can recall the Vostochny Cosmodrome and piecemeal the new built factories or distinguish Putin and Shoigu as people who really work. But the rest of the management in Russia is hucksters, former high school students who never sniffed life and bosses-tyrants. So dear, patriotism should be fair, not blind.

    One thing is not clear: why all this so-called. the elite of Russia suddenly saw the light and in chorus all grew bolder, verbally turning "our partners" into non-Edrugs? And after all, they are not afraid that almost all of their children are there, that real estate is there, and the loot, most likely ... Is it such a synchronous elite performance being played out or is it really "our partners" who have stepped on their tail with their sanctions? However, the questions ...

      You should not have been so derogatory about the country's leadership. That says a lot about you.
      Russia accumulated strength. Often did not answer, as they were objectively not ready for a direct collision. Resources have now been accumulated, plans approved. The primary run-in of people and equipment has passed.
      Russia is focused.
