Russia prevented the US from destroying Russian culture on its borders. This was announced on Saturday, September 24, by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“And then someone (Russia – Ed.) decided thereby to prevent the Americans from climbing onto their border, to prevent the destruction of culture, the Russian language on their border, and generally not to expel Russians from there,” Lavrov said.
The head of the Foreign Ministry also said that after the start of a special operation to protect the inhabitants of Donbass, Moscow was convinced of the inability of the West to negotiate. According to him, Russia has been trying for many years to agree on the rules of coexistence in Europe, but Western countries have refused these proposals. He added that the Minsk agreements were rejected by Kyiv with the direct participation of the United States and EU countries.
On the same day, he announced that the South China Sea could become the next “line of defense” of NATO. Lavrov said that the US views the entire world as its own backyard. According to him, the use of sanctions is a manifestation of cynicism, as they hit the civilian population and prevent access to essential goods.
On September 21, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that, in fact, the Russian Federation was fighting not with the Ukrainian army, but with NATO and the collective West as such. Shoigu added that a NATO satellite constellation is working against Russia in order to reconnoiter the location of units of the Russian Armed Forces.
Relations between Russia and the United States have become more complicated amid the start of a special operation by Moscow to protect the Donbass. On February 24, Russia launched a special operation to protect Donbass. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military. The key goals of the special operation are the protection of the DPR and LPR, as well as the denazification and demilitarization of the Kyiv regime.
