On Sunday, Sergey Lavrov said the following:
“The readiness of Russia, including its president, to negotiate (on Ukraine) remains unchanged.”
“We will always be ready to listen to what proposals our Western partners have to de-escalate tensions.”
“If we are approached with realistic proposals based on principles of equality and respect for each other’s interests, aimed at finding compromises and balancing the interests of all countries, of course we will react, as we’ve always had in the past.”
Russia’s so-called “Western partners” are its mortal enemies.
Waging war on the nation and its people, they pursue the most diabolical aims.
Lavrov knows well but left unexplained that hegemon USA’s word is never its bond — consistently saying one thing, then going another way in pursuit of its hegemonic aims.
It’s why diplomatic outreach to its ruling regimes is a profound waste of time, an exercise in futility at all times.
And wherever the empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies goes, Western vassal states virtually always follow — even when harming their own interests.
And there’s no ambiguity about reality on the ground in Ukraine.
The Nazi-infested territory is a US platform for perpetual war on Russia, a scourge infesting central Europe.
Nominally headed by a US-installed comedian, there’s nothing funny about the regime’s cross-border aggression, criminalizing all things Russian and tyrannical rule.
And earlier calling on US-dominated NATO to attack Russia with nukes is another example of the menace his illegitimate regime represents.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova (MZ below), slammed his “monstrous” remark, adding:
“He was willing to start a nuclear confrontation.”
“His unhealthy ambition does not let him stop at damage his regime already inflicted on” Ukrainians and Donbass civilians.
He “demands more victims.”
“The Kiev regime is showing its sponsors (the Washington-London Anglo-Saxon duo, Brussels and everyone else who made a political, militarily or financial investment) that if they do not continue to provide and increase their help, it will move on to Plan B.”
It’s an anything goes policy to set central Europe more ablaze than already, including by irradiating it.
On October 6, he once again called on US-dominated NATO to attack Russia with nukes.
Last week in Berlin, the Scholz regime and so-called European Commission president, von der Leyen, urged use of stolen Russian assets to establish a modern-day Marshall Plan for Ukrainian Nazis.
Most of what’s sent them is stolen by Zelensky and likeminded crooks around him.
The US/West knows about deep-seated Ukrainian corruption yet still feeds it with regular infusions — supporting the scourge of Nazism instead of condemning its heinous actions.
And while billions of US/Western dollars, euros and pounds are poured down a black hole of waste, fraud and abuse with no limits placed on the amount wasted, their own populations endure belt-tightening austerity at a time of economic decline on a worsening path.
There’s no quick fix to double-digit inflation combined with deepening recession conditions throughout the US/West.
No soft landing is coming despite TV talking heads suggesting it.
David Stockman stressed what’s clear, saying:
“(B)ad stagflation is here…a stubborn beast once it worms its way into the price structure of the economy.”
The Wall Street-controlled Fed, European and other central banks “will be locked in a battle to tame (it) for years to come.”
Reality is that years of unprecedented excess heads Western and other economies on a path toward economic crisis — potentially worse than anything earlier in modern memory.
Yet not a hint of it is suggested by MSM economists, most suggesting return of a rosy scenario in 2023 — when the worst of times is more likely.
At the same time, the risk of greater war than already between the world’s dominant nuclear powers is more ominously high than any previous time throughout the post-WW II period.
And instead of stepping back from what should be universally condemned as unacceptable, things are going in the opposite direction.
Separately on the reality of lawless rule throughout the US-dominated West, MZ stressed the following:
US congressional members “rubber-stamped a multitude of resolutions, statements and acts, which contravene international law, their own country’s commitments and essence of bilateral and multilateral diplomatic relations.”
Looking ahead, the prospect for turning a page to respect the rule of law and rights of other nations is virtually zero.
Instead, a state of perpetual war exists between US-dominated NATO and one invented enemy after another.
It’s been this way throughout most of my lifetime in defiance of international law, the illegitimate Biden regime exceeding the worst of its predecessors.
Of great concern is the rage of their dominant hardliners for war on Russia, China to follow.
Will nothing short of WW III satisfy their rapacious aims?
Since usurping power by the most brazen election fraud in US history, that’s the direction they’ve pursued.
