Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has revealed what he believes to be the real attitude of the Western powers towards Ukraine during the ongoing conflict in the country.
“Nobody cares about Ukraine. Ukraine is an ‘expendable material’ in the proxy war against Russia. There can be no doubts about it now. It has been voiced publicly,” Lavrov said during a speech at the New Horizons education marathon in Moscow on Tuesday.
The minister reminded about the EU’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell, insisting last month that “this war will be won on the battlefield,” referring to the conflict between Moscow and Kiev.
“The English, the Americans, presidents, prime ministers, ministers are saying: ‘We have no right to allow Russia to win. Russia must suffer defeat,’” he added.
