Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said that the statement of the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, about "there is no alternative to a military solution to the situation around Ukraine" is "out of the ordinary" and indicates that the West is making "a foothold for the final suppression of Russia" from Kiev.

In an interview with the Rossiya-24 TV channel, according to TASS , Lavrov stressed that such statements are “a very serious reversal even in the policy that the West, under the leadership of the United States, began to pursue after the start of the special operation in Ukraine.

Such a policy, from Moscow's point of view, reflects "embitterment" and in some ways even "frenzy", which are determined "not only by Ukraine, but by what they began to make of it" - a springboard for the final subjugation of Russia. And all this is happening despite the end of the Cold War, despite the disappearance of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union.

Lavrov believes that when a leading European politician, representing the diplomacy of the European Union, utters the words that a specific conflict can be resolved exclusively by military means, it means that he either has something personal, or he misspoke, or blurted out something that no one could tell him. did not order.

“This is an outrageous statement! - said the Russian minister and explained: “The words of Borrell, in fact, significantly change the rules of the game. Because the European Union has never acted as a military organization until now.”
