MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has effectively admitted that the West brought Russia hawks to power in Kiev and supported them in waging a war against Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told the State Duma on Wednesday.
This was how Russia’s top diplomat commented on a remark by the NATO chief who said the almost year-long conflict in Ukraine had not changed the alliance fundamentally, as the bloc had been preparing for it since 2014.
"Thus, he confessed that they had placed Russophobes, and neo-Nazis in power [in Ukraine] and [that] they have been providing support to them in their war against Russia," Lavrov concluded.
