MOSCOW, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The West is trying to prove its preeminence instead of sticking to the international law, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the meeting of the ministry’s regional representatives on Thursday.
"We did not create the Ukrainian crisis, this is an internal crisis largely instigated from the outside and accompanied with violations of the country's Constitution," said Lavrov.
The foreign minister quoted Russian President Vladimir Putin who said in his March 18 address that disappearance of the bipolar system had not brought more stability to the world.
“Tectonic shifts in the balance of forces are taking place now,” said Lavrov. “The West is trying to impede these processes.”
The West, he added, was attempting to prove its preeminence, not adhere to the international law, and the events in Ukraine “are the confirmation”.
