Mincing no words, Sergey Lavrov said the US-dominated West wants Russia “cancell(ed).”
The “arrogance” of their ruling regimes “has no limits.”
They “declared a total war on us, on the Russian World. Nobody makes any secret of this.”
Demanding subservience to their interests, their tactics include threats, blackmail, “blatant disrespect for sovereign countries,” defiance of the rule of law and perpetual war-making by hot and/or other means, along with every dirty trick imaginable in pursuit of their diabolical aims.
“(C)ancelling Russia and everything related with our country reached a point of absurdity,” Lavrov stressed.
“Bans have been imposed on Tchaikovsky, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy and Pushkin.”
“Persecution is underway against Russian culture and art workers.”
What’s going on is not a short-term thing. It’s “certain that this situation will last.”
It exposes hypocritical Western calls for “universal humanitarian values, for building a common European home from the Atlantic to the Pacific.”
Russia earlier warned the US-dominated West in vain about “waging proxy war (by using) Ukrainian neo-Nazis.”
Separately in spite of indisputable evidence of biological weapons development in Ukraine — in flagrant breach of international law — the collective West remains silent, said Lavrov.
In response to Russia’s call for “a universal transparent verification mechanism” in support of upholding the Convention on the Prohibition of Biological and Toxin Weapons, hegemon USA blocked the initiative since 2001.
There’s no ambiguity why, Lavrov stressed, saying:
“The Americans have been setting up military bio laboratories all over the world.”
“The Pentagon’s…Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) is in charge of these activities.”
It’s focusing on “post-Soviet space and Eurasia.”
Development and production of banned bioweapons is ongoing near the borders of Russia and China.
Donetsk and Lugansk militias discovered this development in liberated Mariupol with military applications in mind.
Evidence showed that Britain and Germany are involved in illegally developing and producing bioweapons.
Like US war secretary Austin, Britain’s so-called foreign secretary Truss openly called for “weaken(ing)” Russia.
The US and UK want no end to proxy war on country by use of expendable Ukrainian cannon fodder troops.
According to neocon Truss, the West “must be relentless in ensuring Ukraine prevails through military aid and sanctions.”
“We can’t take our foot off the accelerator now.”
“Now it is about digging deep, not backsliding.”
“Putin must lose in Ukraine.”
There’s no ambiguity about reality on the ground.
Russian forces are advancing steadily.
They’re rolling over Ukraine’s greatly eroded military.
Systematically annihilating its troops, hundreds continue to lay down their arms and surrender daily.
In the last 24 hours alone, Russian forces struck about 550 Ukrainian military targets.
They included “77 Ukrainian army command posts, 412 areas of amassed manpower and materiel, and also 53 artillery firing positions. In the area of the community of Zavgorodneye in the Kharkov Region, a strike against a pontoon company disrupted yet another attempt by the Ukrainian military to erect a pontoon bridge across the Seversky Donets River.”
Two more munitions depots were destroyed, along with another 9 Ukrainian tanks and five Grad multiple rocket launchers.
A total of 44 areas of massed Ukrainian troops, weapons and equipment were targeted.
Over 250 more Nazified thugs were eliminated, along with 10 artillery guns and over 20 military vehicles.
A Ukrainian MiG-29 warplane was downed, 8 more UAVs, along with more Tochka-U missiles eliminated.
According to DPR head, Denis Pushilin, a handful of hardcore Nazis may still be inside Mariupol’s Azovstal steel plant.
Its largely destroyed vast underground complex has places to hide, he said, adding:
“With the conditions they are in, they are hiding like frightened little puppies, squatting in a corner and thinking that no one will ever find them.”
“Everyone will be found.”
Mopping up operations continue to be completed in the coming days.
Nazi occupiers of Mariupol took a major beating in the city.
Now virtually liberated, so will the rest of Donbass in the coming days and weeks.
According to Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, goals established before its SMO began will be achieved.
Ukraine will be demilitarized, Nazism eradicated, Donbass liberated entirely and Russia’s security enhanced.
Things are well advanced toward achieving these objectives.
