Lavrov: we will talk with the EU only on equal terms

65
Russia does not accept any compulsions and ultimatums and will talk with Brussels only on an equal footing, reports RIA News statement by Sergey Lavrov.




“We will talk only as equal partners and will not respond to the proposal to take for granted any ideas of the European Union. When the EU ripens for an equal respectful dialogue without ultimatums, without any coercive measures, we will only be happy because, I am sure, this current historical the period will not be very long, since we are doomed to live together ”,
said the Foreign Minister in an interview with the Swedish edition of Dagens Nyheter.

“If far-sighted politicians are still preserved in Europe, then they should be perfectly aware that in the present world the European Union and Russia alone cannot be fully competitive,” he added.

According to the minister, “Russian foreign policy will now be different, since business as usual is absolutely impossible.”

“And it is impossible because this business“ as usual ”, as it was understood in the West, in the European Union and NATO, meant only one thing: that we all should and should, above all, become the same as they are. If in the West the attitude, for example, to human rights evolves towards universal connivance and permissiveness, they are not interested in the fact that this contradicts the fundamental foundations of our culture, which is based on the Orthodox religion, Christianity. This is just one example and there are many such examples, ”said Lavrov.

“Since it is so decided, and we act like this, any deviations of Russia aside were viewed as bad behavior,” he noted.

“We were constantly taught in the Russia-NATO Council, in relations with the European Union, that it was necessary to act this way and that way. Although, I repeat, there were a lot of useful things, and we do not want to lose it. We will no longer allow such a way of doing business when the same economic relations became victims of ideology, geopolitical calculations and plans, ”the Foreign Minister said.

      On an equal footing, this means when the EU will regain independence from the Western hegemon? In the meantime, we will act as we see fit for the interests of the state, without asking for these litter of Uncle Sam.

    S.V. Lavrov, this is a rock. It’s good that he heads our Foreign Ministry. If people like him were in the West, it would be difficult for our foreign policy to carry out any actions. And look dear forum users how the rhetoric of the Russian Foreign Ministry has changed: “We will talk only as equal partners and will not respond to the proposal to take for granted any ideas of the European Union. When the EU ripens for an equal respectful dialogue without ultimatums, without any coercive measures, we will only be happy because, I am sure, this current historical period will not be very long, as we are doomed to live together ” Most likely such words sound for a reason. They are backed up by something else (let them scratch their turnips in the West and think or fantasize what exactly am ) And also for me personally, S.V. Lavrov sets an example of a high cultural and intellectual MAN on which you need to align.

    On April 27, Mikhail Khodorkovsky spoke at Oxford Union, the Oxford Discussion Club. There he called for a violation of the territorial integrity of Russia.

    “National republics will get the opportunity to leave Russia according to the results of an honest referendum, after a reasonable transition period. However, the holding of referenda will become possible only after democratic reforms are carried out in the republics. Voting at gunpoint of squads of medieval feudal lords is unacceptable, ”Khodorkovsky said.

    It is worth noting that such statements are punishable by law, namely article 280.1. Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Public calls for the implementation of actions aimed at violating the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation”.

    this business is "as usual", as it was understood in the West, in the European Union and NATO, meant only one thing: that we all must and must, first of all, become the same as they. If in the West the attitude, for example, towards human rights is evolving towards universal connivance and permissiveness, then they are not interested in the fact that this contradicts the fundamental foundations of our culture, which is based on the Orthodox religion - on Christianity.

    We were constantly taught in the Russia-NATO Council, in relations with the European Union, that it was necessary to act in such and such a way.

    Right. Do not teach us how to live. Who told you (or whispered, a vision or revelation from above was) that you have the RIGHT to teach someone something. Understand first at home.

    - Reinterpreting this exact thought, we can say that "if you (the West) are inclined to the language of ultimatums (ssanctions), then we (Russia) do not mind. Only a SMALL nuance: we (Russia) issue ultimatums, and you suffer for failure to comply with its conditions , europpa.

    Russia will talk with Brussels only on equal terms ...

    It is not enough just to add "from now" ....

    And as for this, they just listened, and agreed, nodding their head, not talking?

    And how will we talk on equal terms with Washington when we ourselves regularly send $ billion there.

    And with Beijing as equals, when he gives us the final product, and we give him oil at a low price, he’ll just take it ...

    And how to talk with the Baltic tigers, who turned the Russians into non-citizens, into a cold? Wipe quietly ...

    But Poland generally behaves like a superpower, even Zoldostanova dared to forbid travel on a motorcycle, how can one talk on such an equal footing if she doesn’t open the door for conversation ...

    And with "respected Petr Alekseevich" will we also talk on equal terms, forgetting about the Donbass and the Russians?

    It remains to speak on equal terms with Tajikistan, where Russian names were recently banned, so that it would be better to put oneself more equal ...

    To speak on equal terms, one must have equal strength. We must stop stealing and taking out stolen goods to someone with whom we are only going to talk on equal terms. It is high time to go about our internal affairs and establish an economy, stop robbing people, overshadowing internal bankruptcy with successes in foreign affairs.

    The USSR could talk on an equal footing even with the rest of the world, and talked without declaring that it would only "talk on an equal footing".

    Less statements, more practical cases.
    For a start, Russians at least in Russia from different "squares" should be humanly accepted, and not torment Russian people for years waiting for Russian citizenship, turning them into second-class people, inferior, it turns out, with valuable personnel from the Caucasus and Central Asia.
    Here, at least equality can bring Russians with proud representatives of the republics of the former Russia, in the format of the USSR.

    And where is there in this EU equal to find something? Germans or what? So they are still occupied by the United States, leave those, withdraw your troops, so they immediately begin to revive their Reich. British? Those in the simplicity of their soul think that the United States has remained their colony and treat the Americans and everyone else condescendingly. The French and Italians, like under A. Hitler, sing and dance, they have such a mentality, never lose heart. The rest of the "neutrals" gave the territories of their countries to refugees, Americans, aliens, cats and dogs or wild boars and rabbits. Yes, there is also Eastern Europe, about which you do not know where to write capital letters in this phrase, and in some Hollywood movies it is depicted on maps with a mountain of cigarette butts or an ashtray that has not been shaken out.
    So, you have to talk to the United States again, like thirty, forty years ago. And here the main thing is to prevent the mistakes that we made then.
