MOSCOW, January 25. /TASS/. Reflections on whether the West has crossed any red lines are a thing of the past, since the United States has openly declared its plans of defeating Russia strategically, the Russian Foreign Ministry has told TASS.
Commenting on Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyansky’s remarks that "not all red lines have yet been crossed" by the West, the ministry said: "A hybrid war is being waged against our country."
"Reflections about red lines are now in the past. The United States has unequivocally declared its intention to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia," the ministry continued. "It is impossible not to notice this reality."
Polyansky earlier told US journalist Kim Iversen that NATO and other Western countries have de-facto become embroiled into the conflict in Ukraine, but not all red lines have yet been crossed.
