The head of Russian diplomacy indicated that Moscow watches with concern the rhetoric of the West, which accuses Russia of preparing provocations with the use of weapons of mass destruction.

Lavrov indicated that discussing strategic stability with the US without taking into account the Ukraine situation is not possible. “For everyone, I think, it is absolutely clear that addressing strategic stability without taking into account everything that is currently happening in Ukraine is impossible,” he stressed.
He explained that the kyiv government has set itself the goal of “defeating, if not destroying, Russia on the battlefield.” “How can the goal of defeating Russia not be important for strategic stability?” Lavrov asked, stressing that Russia is one of the key players in this area.

The minister indicated that the conflict in Ukraine cannot be separated from the debate on strategic stability. “They (the Americans) tell us: we have to talk to the Ukrainians about Ukraine, whenever the Ukrainians want, and for us to discuss nuclear weapons and strategic stability. This is, to say the least, naive,” he said.
