Moscow took maximum efforts for Europe’s peaceful development – Lavrov

His article is devoted to the 130th anniversary of the birth of 20th century French general and president Charles de Gaulle

MOSCOW, June 13. /TASS/. Russia has done everything for Europe to embark on the path of prosperity and sustainable development, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an article for the French journal Revue Politique et Parlementaire published on Saturday.

The article is devoted to the 130th anniversary of the birth of 20th century French general and president Charles de Gaulle.

De Gaulle always supported the policy of developing mutually respectful relations with Moscow, which can be confirmed by the Soviet-French Treaty of Alliance and Mutual Assistance concluded in December 1944 for a period of twenty years, the Russian foreign minister said.

“However, after de Gaulle’s resignation in 1946 and the cold war that started, the potential of the treaty remained unrealized,” Lavrov pointed out.

“After returning to the French political scene in 1958, the general continued its course towards promoting relations with the Soviet Union. In their consistent development, he saw not only a guarantee of the well-being of the two peoples but also the most important factor in reducing international tension and maintaining regional and global stability,” the Russian foreign minister said.

After the end of the bipolar confrontation in the early 1990s, a historical chance appeared for all de Gaulle’s noble intentions, including the intention of reaching our continent’s unity for the sake of “equilibrium, progress and peace of the entire world” to be carried through, Lavrov noted.

“Russia, on its part, took maximum efforts for Europe that had lived through two world wars and then the cold war to finally embark on the path of prosperity, mutually advantageous partnership and peaceful sustainable development for the benefit of the current and future generations,” Russia’s top diplomat stressed.

“Moscow invariably stood for strengthening the unifying role of such pan-European institutions as the OSCE, for example. It was our country that suggested signing the Treaty on European Security and starting joint work on creating a common space of peace, stability and wide economic and humanitarian cooperation from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean,” Russia’s foreign minister said.

  • “Russia, on its part, took maximum efforts for Europe that had lived through two world wars and then the cold war to finally embark on the path of prosperity…”
    Really?
    In reality, which is an allergen in the Kremlin, the Moskali hacked, lied, spread propaganda, sent the GRU to poison Moskovia’s opponents, broke every treaty they signed, continued their illegal occupation in Moldova, Invaded and continued their illegal occupations in Georgia, vetoed every peace initiative in the UNSC, used oil and gas as weapons in Europe, kidnapped foreign citizens from all over Europe, invaded and continued their illegal occupations in Ukraine, continued their constant violations of European airspace and territorial waters, did nuclear testing near European borders, sent their poisonous smoke and pollution all over Europe, continued sending spies and thieves all over Europe, continued torturing, raping and killing foreign citizens of Europe…
    But we are supposed to forget all that and believe KGB Horseface. It’s not going to work. Did Horseface mention the reason for all the European sanctions imposed on Moskovia’s malign activities in Europe?

      Why would Muscovy do that, when their own country is a third world shithole, where having a toilet puts you in the elite class? Lavrov needs to stop snorting his South American cocaine and get back into the real world.
