BALI, /Indonesia/, November 15. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Tuesday said Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s speech addressed to the G20 summit shows he doesn’t take advice from the West.
"I have been able to draw just one conclusion from his speech: It’s that he doesn’t listen to any advice from the West. I won't recount everything he said. There was bellicose rhetoric, a Russophobic, aggressive one. But the content of his speech and the condition of this person are best characterized by a phrase he said not very appropriately, but he still said it. He said that the Allied landings in Normandy in 1944 were a watershed moment in World War II. Draw your own conclusions," he told reporters as he summed up his activity at the summit.
Lavrov also said Zelensky’s speech was pre-recorded and lasted much longer than it should have.
"Zelensky's speech was very interesting at the meeting today. The chairman of the G20 decided to let him speak. The speech was pre-recorded and lasted 20 minutes, although every other attendee was given about three minutes so that all could have a chance to speak. And Zelensky spoke for 20 minutes, and it was impossible to interrupt him, because it was a recording," the minister said.
