MUNICH, February 4 (Itar-Tass) — Democratic processes in Russia will be motivated exclusively by the nation’s internal demands, not by any kind of counseling from abroad, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday as he took the floor at the annual conference on international security underway here.
“Again and again one can hear the thesis about Russia’s incorporation in an expanded West of some kind without the traditions of independent foreign policy making, which Russia has been developing over centuries,” Lavrov said.
“Russia is moving along the pathway of comprehensive renovation, including modernization of its political system, and that’s why the rates and character of democratic processes in this country will be dictated exclusively by the internal needs, not by counseling from abroad,” he said.
