MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. The vast majority of countries understand that Moscow is right in the situation around Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told reporters on Tuesday.
"I assure you, the vast majority of countries understand that we are right perfectly well but, objectively speaking, not all of them have the courage and strength to speak frankly about it. Still, an overwhelming majority refuses to support the steps that the West is taking in the economic sphere and the overall sanctions pressure on Russia," he pointed out.
According to the top diplomat, the West, immersed in an anti-Russian frenzy, "feels a lack of strong arguments in support of its position and seeks to intimidate all other countries, first and foremost, the developing countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, using threats and blackmail to make them take a position condemning Russia."
Lavrov noted that it was further proof of the collective West’s weak position. "If you believe that you are right, you should explain what you think about certain international developments and let other people decide for themselves like adults whose arguments are more convincing in this case, whether it’s Russia and the residents of Donbass and Ukraine who are unwilling to remain under the rule of a neo-Nazi regime, or it’s the collective West, who has proclaimed Ukraine a beacon of democracy and plegded to fight until the last Ukrainian in order to weaken Russia as much as possible or maybe even divide it," the Russian foreign minister emphasized.
