Sergey Lavrov on "seasoned" diplomats, NATO stick discipline, Ukraine and attempts to isolate Russia

Eve pages ITAR-TASS A thorough interview with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov was published in the framework of the “First Persons” project. Sergei Lavrov today can be attributed to the pleiad of those domestic political figures who are on a kind of outpost, defending the Russian position and Russian interests, bringing the Russian point of view on what is happening in the world through the accretions that our expensive "partners" are trying to pour out Russia.

Sergey Lavrov on "seasoned" diplomats, NATO stick discipline, Ukraine and attempts to isolate Russia


One of the first questions to which Sergey Lavrov answered was related to the presence of experienced partners “on the other side of the barricades”. The head of the foreign ministry was asked who he could enumerate as “mature” diplomats. Sergey Lavrov's answer was, for obvious reasons, diplomatic, but at the same time it had a very interesting implication. The Foreign Minister said that he had no right to single out some and offend others, while adding that there are solid opponents who have their own point of view, but there are experienced ones who fulfill (quote) “instructions of one or another regional committee”.

Judging by the dynamics of events that have manifested themselves in recent years, truly independent partners in the world are becoming less and less. At the same time, the number of those who are inclined to dance to the “obkomovskuyu” tune and to build from themselves a representative of the global diplomatic establishment is growing. The most striking example of the confirmation of Lavrov’s words about the different statuses of the “maturity” of diplomats in the modern world are dialogues within the walls of the UN. The whole essence of the meeting of the UN Security Council on the need to adopt a resolution comes down to a banal bargaining. Samantha Power, the well-known Samartha Power, acts as the main market baza, trying to win over as many puppies as possible to the US interests. If suddenly one or another puppet shows something similar to one’s own opinion, then the market turns into a bird’s one, and there’s no real solution to the problem. The hubbub, mutual recriminations, threats, ridicule, provocations are the twisted face of global “diplomacy”, which is really disgusting to look at today.

Sergei Lavrov:
The law for our Western partners is that the pole ... And this is understandable. The democratic structure of the world does not fit into the policies of the present-day West, which is striving at all costs to maintain its position held for centuries. It becomes more difficult to do this. In short, the international system is in motion, the foundations have staggered, they are being swung very, very actively ...


According to the Russian minister, Russia has consistently supported the strengthening of international law and suggests respecting the agreements reached and creating new tools to respond to contemporary challenges.

The topic that manifested itself during the interview is international relations based on the participation or non-participation of countries in bloc military programs. Sergei Lavrov noted the strangeness of the “security” model that the Western world is trying to implant. We are talking primarily about the expansion of NATO.

Sergei Lavrov:
(...) The North Atlantic Alliance provides protection to all who belong to it. But he does not guarantee the safety of those who are not included.
Apparently, the idea was to tighten the post-Soviet countries into NATO under this pretext and move the dividing lines to our borders. But the idea failed.


But the West, apparently, is not inclined to believe that the idea of ​​expanding NATO to the East (closer and closer to the borders of the Russian Federation) has failed. If I had, I would have refused it long ago. But with the stubbornness of the insane, the North Atlantic Alliance continues to swell, accepting even those countries that by definition weaken it. The leadership of these countries, which is influenced by the well-known "regional committee", believes that joining NATO is a panacea for all threats. They say that we will join NATO, and there will not even be any grass to grow - French, German, American and British soldiers will come and protect them from the “Russian threat”. But only after numerous fiascos related to the NATO invasion of certain countries, already by the American, French, British, German and other NATO soldiers, the desire again and again to cross the border under the banner of pseudo-democracy, tends to zero.

And the territories of the states that have become new members of the alliance are not perceived as friendly, and not as equal in status, but as frankly colonial. The recent NATO exercises in the Baltic States, when the sailors of the Netherlands urinated on flowerbeds in the city center and showed their reproductive organs to passersby, alternating such shows with the implementation of gag reflexes, demonstrated a real attitude to the eastern newcomers. But they have to endure, because they were promised safety: let them urinate on their flowerbeds and doors, turn the cities into the objects of mass leisure of the NATO military with drunkenness and attendant vandalism - that's okay, safety is above all ... Dear Dutch defender, savior from the “Russian yoke”! ..

Sergei Lavrov:
You see, the classic alliances of the Cold War era have exhausted themselves. About NATO throwing in search of the meaning of existence, I have already said. We have the CSTO, our military-political alliance. But there is no cane discipline in it. Sometimes we hear, they say, look at how NATO members are voting in the UN: the US commanded, and everyone raised their hands (though everyone knows that before that many were harshly treated). And representatives of the CSTO countries can support the initiative of Russia or abstain, or even skip the meeting, as it was when a resolution was discussed at the UN General Assembly after the Crimean events.


Sergey Lavrov thinks in an interview, of course, about the situation in Ukraine and around Ukraine. The Foreign Minister says bluntly that Western countries, for which there are no uniform political laws as such, are in fact the main scriptwriters and sponsors of the Ukrainian bloodshed. If for European politicians (from Germany, France and Poland) their personal signatures under the document from 21 February 2014 mean nothing, then does the fate of the Ukrainian people mean anything to them? ..

Sergei Lavrov:
We asked Western colleagues: how is that? After all, you signed a document that was supposed to lead to calm the situation. We were answered: since there is no Yanukovych in Kiev, the agreement is no longer valid. Curious logic! Firstly, he was in the east of Ukraine, in his own country. And secondly, it turns out that the task of national reconciliation was associated exclusively with the person of Yanukovich and his elimination? What are these European values? No answer so far.


There will be no answer. It will not happen as long as the West considers that there is only one pole in the political world today. In this case, there will be no answer on the tragedy in Odessa, and on the execution of civilians in Mariupol, and on the downed Malaysian Boeing, and on a whole series of war crimes of the Kiev junta in the Donbass. It will not happen, since the junta is the western brainchild, flesh of the flesh. It is the model for which the United States and their dolls cling to as the only suitable, and gave rise to Ukrainian fascism. Again the dream of the mind ...

Sergey Lavrov is sure that if Russia had not shown a known position on the Crimea, then on this peninsula today bloody strife, similar to Donetsk and Lugansk, would have flared. The junta would not have stopped here either. More precisely, those who sponsored the Kiev coup d'etat simply wouldn’t stop it. The Foreign Minister says that if the West is not satisfied with the legitimacy of recognizing the independence of Crimea and its subsequent entry into Russia, then let it be better to look at Kosovo ...

Sergei Lavrov:
(...) Belgrade and Pristina were negotiating, somehow, but moving forward. The Western countries took a date from the ceiling, setting an artificial framework for reaching agreements, the Kosovo Albanians skillfully played along, after which they hypocritically threw up their hands in Europe and America: they say, since you could not agree on time, we unilaterally recognize Kosovo. Everything! To the question "How so?" we were told that a lot of blood had been spilled in Kosovo. According to this logic, it was necessary to wait until the Crimea was flooded with corpses, so that the United States and Brussels would mercifully allow the surviving Crimeans to decide their fate?


Sergey Lavrov commented on the situation with the Ukrainian accusations of Russia that allegedly the Russian regular army is fighting in the Donbas. The head of the Russian diplomatic department said that the Ukrainian authorities had recently become accustomed to using simplified slogans to the limit in order to manipulate public opinion. Indeed, after the ban on Ukraine 15 of Russian TV channels, after the persecutions, abductions and murders of journalists, the information space of Ukraine was almost completely in the hands of the junta and those whose interests it defends. And the fact that Kiev is trying to carry through this space (and in what other way all this is being presented) causes, at a minimum, bewilderment: entire Russian divisions are “dying”; literally in a day, valiant Ukroarmia fighters here and there “grab” FSB agents , officers of the GRU. American satellites give out such pictures under the guise of evidence of the “Russian invasion”, that it’s time to ask a question: these are the new technologies of photographing from space: either rocket launchers, or combines (as one American farmer stated), or even flies, slammed by the newspaper after receiving images from space.

Sergey Lavrov is confident that the West continues to follow the path of the implementation of the program for containing Russia:
There would not be the Crimea and the south-east of Ukraine, the West would have invented something else. The goal has been set: to bring Russia out of balance at any price. The task was formulated long ago. Take the same Syria. A couple of years ago, they attacked us as defenders of a dictator who tyrannizes his own people.
(...) there would be a desire, but there will be a reason. Washington and some European countries did not decide yesterday to isolate Russia.


Isolation of Russia without political and economic losses for loved ones and with simultaneous access to the resources of Russia is the long-held dream of the West. That's just the fuse for the realization of this dream of the "partners" in fact, there are not so many. After all, it was enough for Russia only to indicate the fact of the formation of a multipolar world, as the western powder got pretty wet ... Now they cover the wet spot on the “democracy” costume with folders with sanctions ...

    oh guys roofing felts will still be ... you can’t relax

    mongrel ..

    On the third day we went to the customer to place wooden posts. decorative. the cool thing turned out .. well, I sent the guys and he came back later .. you have to hang out like check and guide ... everything is normal. the customer is adequate .. the woman the designer worked all her life, she sees things that are difficult to consider ... in general, everything is fine .. she’s happy, I’m happy, the neighbors are happy (the house is two owners). the neighbors have a dog ... and she wants to go out into the yard where we mess .. the men immediately warned me to watch Sanya a sweet dog with cockroaches in my head ... well, I think like a dog, I don’t find a common language .. even allowed her to lick her legs ... everything is fine, everything goes as usual .. and then I went to the faucet to wash myself .. (the guys just polished, washed off the dust). he just opened the tap, bent over, lathered his face - I feel someone’s teeth bite into the back of the little dog ... it’s not that it hurts, it hurt .. the laughter through the tears is called - don’t relax, but they will have it like a dog ... The customer is shocked, the neighbors I’m fucked up with soapy physics ... and everyone is waiting for my reaction ... intelligent people around me didn’t have to swear (and my lads instead of warm words of support just ride with laughter). I had to politely explain that biting my ass is too expensive and expensive ... Oh, what happened to this dog from intelligent neighbors ... I did not think that they knew so many obscene words. the poor dog herself regretted her act. already I felt sorry for her ...

    in general, everything is as in politics ... there are owners, they can caress and maybe according to their faces, but there are mongrels who live under the owners but believe that everything is possible for them ... the main thing is not to relax.

Why be like the same USA? it is necessary to continue to show the entire civilized world (excluding the United States and Co.) that Russia is an adequate and fair partner, which will not be a global gendarme but a world arbiter with whom you can be friends and do business, without fear of getting demoralized by carpet bombing. And for the United States and other "Western PARTNERS", you need to keep repeating the phrase "whoever comes to us with a sword will die by the sword" demonstrating his exclusively defensive potential)))))

          Everything is fair, only how to do it. The world does not obey the just, but the strong. Therefore, you can arbitrarily refer to international law, impose responsibility, etc. But they will obey us only if everyone knows our economic and military strength. Our opponents understand this, therefore their sanctions are directed precisely against these sectors of our economy.

            Yes, military and economic potential is a very convincing argument in foreign policy dialogues. And it should be. But I believe that waving and threatening with a truncheon immediately, as the United States does, is not an option. It is necessary to strengthen the image of Russia as an adequate, sane and sensible partner (which can nevertheless be very arrogant in the face), and not to appear in the eyes of the community as a gopnik a la "I hear a kid, is there democracy? And if I don't find it?"

              Putin made it clear what kind of world he is seeking. A unipolar world has long been history and, realizing it only now, the United States has dramatically changed both the tone of conversations with the Kremlin and its actions. The alliance with India, China and other countries, strengthens Russia's position in the international arena, and also brings to this very arena the new poles of political power ...

            I don’t know how familiar you are with international law, especially with international law. public law, but do not consider my words for teachings and insults - international public law (WFP) is, in my opinion, the most utopian and non-viable institution of law. The cornerstone of WFP are the so-called jus cogens principles. These principles are enshrined in the UN Charter and are the basis of all WFP standards. The principles are clear, logical and fair. Here they are:

            The principle of the non-use of force and the threat of force
            The principle of resolving international disputes by peaceful means
            The principle of non-interference in matters falling within the internal competence of states
            The principle of the obligation of states to cooperate with each other
            The principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples
            The principle of sovereign equality of states
            The principle of good faith implementation of obligations under international law
            The principle of inviolability of state borders
            The principle of territorial integrity of states
            The principle of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms

            In your opinion, how can we link the principles of the inviolability of state borders and the territorial integrity of states with the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, according to which people can gain independence and, consequently, territories.

      I suppose the further development of the events of this incident.

      The landlord is hired by a lawyer (such as a professor from our site). He begins to prove that you, with his monstrous behavior, forced a dog to courageously protect his possessions, trying to protect his property, protecting him from your treacherous attack.

      You, with your "incessant" behavior, provoked her to this act. You "dared" to turn your back to the "peace-loving" dog.

      And in general, YOU VISIBILELY ARTED A PEACEFUL CANDY. laughing

      My nonsense is about how these events in Ukraine are trying to represent the world community.

          There was such a brilliant diplomat in the XNUMXth century Gorochakov. He studied with Pushkin at the Lyceum, an excellent student. He put everyone in their place, observed the Russian interest clearly. But with the friendship and credits of the North American Russian Empire, he planted such a thing that later pro. Alaska. Here you have to be the coolest, keep your ears open, and better like Gromyko - there is a clear "no" to all hostile initiatives until an unambiguously acceptable agreement is found for Russia.

      Free translation -

      He guards the borders of his country; he protects his citizens abroad; he banned gay propaganda among schoolchildren; he pursues financial criminals; he imprisons those who blaspheme in churches; he puts the interests of the country above all else.

    Our diplomats are now working from an unshakable position: there is evidence of Nazi crimes and not a single fact of the participation of the Russian army. There is evidence of the destruction of the Boeing by the Ukrainian Air Force and not one against Russia. There are documentary shots of the mass execution in Odessa and nothing against the FSB. Ie stand for the truth on the basis of unshakable evidence.
    But the most important thing is Putin, who gives clear instructions on foreign policy.
    However, Vladimir Vladimirovich must be asked to stay for at least another term.

    To the question "How is that?" we were told that a lot of blood was shed in Kosovo



    The trouble is that the current norms of INTERNATIONAL LAW somehow quietly replaced
    theses ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS and DEMOCRACY, and under this brand do what they want. But before even a bloody tyrant
    It was IMPOSSIBLE to judge internationally. This was considered an internal matter of the country. Even in Nuremberg there was this legal incident ... It turns out that there are no laws now, and to control their implementation, all the more

    Russian Foreign Minister: we do not twist our allies and do not blackmail anyone

    MOSCOW, September 11. / ITAR-TASS /. The new alliances must be flexible; non-adherence of Minsk and Astana to the food import embargo is their right. This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an interview for the special project ITAR-TASS "First Persons".
    "The classic alliances of the Cold War era have exhausted themselves. I have already spoken about NATO's throwing in search of a meaning of existence," Lavrov noted. "We have the CSTO, our own military-political alliance. But it lacks cane discipline."
    “Sometimes we hear, they say, look at how the members of the North Atlantic bloc vote in unison at the UN: the United States gave orders, and everyone raised their hands (although everyone knows that before that many were harshly treated). And representatives of the CSTO countries can support Russia's initiative or abstain, but then skip the meeting altogether, as it was when the UN General Assembly discussed the resolution after the Crimean events, "he continued." My answer is always simple: yes, we expect our allies to follow the agreements of the CSTO heads of state on a single foreign policy line, but also we understand that today's world is multifaceted and multi-vector, therefore we do not seek to prohibit anyone from having nuances in approaches to solving this or that problem, and certainly we do not twist anyone's hands and do not blackmail anyone. "
    Speaking about the non-alignment of Kazakhstan and Belarus, partners in the Customs Union, to the food embargo, the minister said that it was their right.
    “Yes, they said that they did not join the sanctions, but stressed that they would not allow their territory to be used to violate the norms introduced by Russia,” the Russian Foreign Minister noted. “This is the difference between new alliances and old ones. Modern alliances should be flexible. By the way, our strategic partnerships do not end at the CSTO. "
    Lavrov also mentioned BRICS and SCO. "In both cases, apart from mutual economic interests, we are talking about countries that are like-minded on fundamental issues of the world order," he said.

    New time, new challenges, therefore, new alliances must be flexible, and let the mammoths die out.
    I hope NATO will not pass the selection and will die out in the 21 century. The BRICS and the SCO are organizations of a new era.

    You are only to blame for the fact that I want to eat, - said and dragged the lamb into the dark forest. So in the famous fable of Krylov, but let the so-called "partners" not forget that Russia is not a lamb, but a bear.

      I agree with you. Give gifts made to Ukraine by the Romanovs, V.L. Lenin, I.V. Stalin! Where is Alaska selected and the main United States sold for nothing?

    And yet, I already wrote that the main work in diplomacy is done all the same by the economy and the army, the United States confirms this.

    There will be no isolation. Fortunately, the "world community" in the 21st century is not limited to the United States and the European Union. There is China, India, the countries of Latin America, Southeast Asia, the whole African continent, Iran, Syria ... All of them are oriented towards cooperation with Russia and they do not care about the Western London-Brussels-Washington sanctions.

    Such "interest clubs" as SCO, CSTO, BRICS and others are gaining strength, and this is a total of more than half of humanity who want to live in peace, who do not want to impose their vision of life on anyone. Therefore, NATy, EU and other aggressors of the world are furious. They do not want to understand that the world is multipolar, and everyone is tired of their imposition of their will, their aggression. But the redivision of the world has been going on a spiral for as many millions of years as the earth has existed, therefore it is necessary to strengthen our armed forces. I bow low to the diplomatic corps of our State, it is very difficult for you to communicate with all sorts of powers and others like them, but brace yourself - the people and Russia whom you are defending are with you. Thank you for your policy.

    Tell me - is the embargo on the import of imported food into Russia or not? And, as I understand it, everything is being imported as before, but under the guise of Belarusian goods?

    I can’t imagine how one can maintain composure and control over a situation when one has to listen to the lies of Western diplomats saturated with the theory of double standards ... Well done Sergey Lavrov!

    ISOLATE RUSSIA ... and God bless him! I’ve lived without the USA and their khaluev, I live and will live! and I’m almost not upset! I'm afraid that this is not about isolation, but about colonization or enslavement - which is essentially the same thing! Media yelling - sanctions, sanctions! - what are the sanctions ?? sanctions are imposed by the WORLD COMMUNITY (this is the UN), and not by individual members! what the USA and the EU are doing is called reprisals! (in our opinion, reprisals) In fact, this is a declaration of war! And what can you negotiate with them after that? This is stupid! Moreover, the war has begun - it is a fact! only it turns out that now for some reason we are killing each other ... If they want to fight, give them a war, Mr. Putin! there is no maaalenky blood! if she is, she is always a river! Dilute this river with their blood! It's a shame indeed ... And who does not see the white light at all already ... we also know how to bleed !!!
