UNITED NATIONS, September 28. /TASS/. The goal of Western nations is to weaken and dismember Russia and to subsequently force it into submission, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya told Tuesday’s meeting of the UN Security Council.
"Everyone understands perfectly well that the only goal of the West and the current standoff near our very border is to weaken Russia as much as possible, while its strategists dream of dismembering it and forcing it into submission," he said.
"Again and again, throughout different periods in history, we defended our right for freedom, the right to follow our own path. Our people remember history, remember how hard it was to achieve that," Nebenzya said. "Just like decades and centuries ago, we are ready to defend the interests of our fatherland and protect the weak. This is in our genes, and no Western propaganda, no intricate political technologies can change that".
