Lavrov recalled that the presidents of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and the United States, Joe Biden, signed a declaration in June 2021 that There can be no winners in a nuclear war. document that five nuclear powers later signed.
Also Lavrov has defended airstrikes on energy facilities in Ukraine since they serve as a support base for the Ukrainian forces and the “nationalist battalions”.
“These infrastructures support the combat capacity of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and nationalist battalions”Lavrov has justified during a televised press conference in which he has assured that these attacks actually seek to minimize the number of civilian victims.
At the same time, Lavrov has criticized “hysteria” and the hypocrisy of Western governments and media, since these attacks on this type of facilities have been perpetrated by both NATO and the United States in previous conflicts.
“Compare the hysteria now unleashed in the Western media with what happened when the United States bombed Iraq”Lavrov has compared, citing as an example the NATO bombing of a Belgrade television center during the Balkan war.
