Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has warned Ukraine against being “pushed from the outside” to launch a hot phase of the Donbas conflict, claiming the move threatens to destroy the country.

“Those who will try to start a new war in Donbas will destroy Ukraine,” Lavrov said in an interview with Channel One, Deutsche Welle reports.

“According to the information published in the media, most of the military understand the perniciousness of any action to launch a hot conflict. I very much hope they will not be incited by politicians, who, in turn, will be incited by the West led by the United States,” Lavrov said,

The top diplomat noted lot of speculation observed about the documents recently approved by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and signed by President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“To what extent does this reflect actual politics? And to what extent is it aimed at solving Zelensky’s issues within the country related to a sliding rating? I don’t know if this is a bluff or concrete plans,” the Russian foreign minister added.

Lavrov’s statement comes amid Russia amassing troops and military hardware along the Ukrainian border under the pretext of drills.

  • This is more amateur projection by a career KGB propagandist. His boss is amassing weaponry at Ukraine’s borders and then accuses Ukraine of provoking a war. We’ve seen this movie a thousand times but the media fall for it every time. According to Horseface, Ukraine should not be allowed to defend itself, yet this goon is given credibility.

    • Interesting Lavrov claiming Ukraine want war because of Zelensky’s sliding ratings. Maybe he needs to look at his boss before coming out with BS about ratings.

  • Ukraine or Muscovy? Except for the Crimea Ukraine is a relatively homogene society, other than Putin’s RuSSia.

  • I wonder if the mafia state will launch a few missiles from inside Russia, aimed at the centre of Donetsk, it wouldn’t surprise me. Then Putler will use this as an excuse to invade further into Ukraine. I just hope the US are monitoring the area closely with satellites.

    • It’s true, they’ve been waiting for Ukraine to react like Georgia did and then slaughter everyone in sight and take all their doors, chickens and toilets. How many times did they fire at and from schools and hospitals hoping Ukraine would fire back? Anything provokes the Moscow fascists, even if you fart in their general direction…

      From U.S. News ;
      Both Secretary of State Antony Blinken and U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called their Ukrainian counterparts on Thursday. Milley also spoke to Russian Gen. Valery Gerasimov through a channel the two militaries maintain to deconflict potential conflict in Syria and elsewhere, and which by agreement remain private.
      Blinken expressed “unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russia’s ongoing aggression in the Donbas and Crimea,” according to a readout of his call that the State Department released.

    Mafia land has inadvertently exposed a possible black flag by them. Don’t worry, horse, I’m sure that we are closely watching things from invisible places.
