War between Russia and the West is no longer hybrid but is ‘almost a real one’, Sergei Lavrov warns
Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov today warned the war between Russia and the West is no longer hybrid but was ‘almost a real one’, as he blasted Western nations for sending billions of pounds worth of arms to Ukraine.
Lavrov also claimed Moscow was willing to negotiate with Ukraine in the early months of the war but the U.S. and other Western nations advised Kyiv against it.
Lavrov’s remarks on a visit to South Africa were similar to those made last year by Russian President Vladimir Putin that his country was for talks but Ukraine’s Western allies prevented that from happening.
The Kyiv government desperately wants the German-made Leopard 2 tank to break through Russian lines and recapture territory this year.
