Russia accuses U.S.of building ‘belt of instability’ to undermine Moscow

Russia has repeatedly accused the U.S. and its NATO allies of plotting regime change in Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and elsewhere

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has accused Western nations of trying to create a “belt of instability” to undermine Moscow, while also meddling in Russia’s upcoming parliamentary elections and backing extremists. This is reported by Newsweek.

At a foreign policy webinar, Lavrov levelled multiple accusations at Russia’s Western adversaries, both American and European.

“They are attempting to build a belt of instability around us, forcing our nearest neighbors and our fraternal populations to make a choice – either you’re with the West or you’re with the Russian Federation,” said Lavrov, according to the Tass news agency.

“They want to absorb the territories around our country through various means—both military and economic ones—and surround us with a buffer zone, additionally profiting from the fact that the West will have a decisive influence on the development of our neighboring countries.”

“This line was thoroughly seen in Ukraine,” Lavrov said. “Over the recent months, they tried to test out color revolution methods in Belarus as well.”Related: Pink puddles of chemicals near Rivne: Police opens criminal proceedings

“The Americans and Europeans started a geopolitical battle for Moldova, not even shying away from open propaganda during the election campaign, directly meddling in the internal affairs of a seemingly sovereign state,” Lavrov added.

Russia has repeatedly accused the U.S. and its NATO allies of plotting regime change in Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and elsewhere. The U.S. and NATO, meanwhile, have cited Russian invasions of Ukraine and Georgia as proof that Moscow is more interested in its sphere of influence than regional peace.

Russian aggression in Ukraine and Georgia has pushed both nations towards NATO membership along with Montenegro, which in 2016 was the target of an alleged Russian-linked coup. All three nations are striving for full NATO membership, despite threats from Moscow that it could ignite more conflicts.

    If these countries chose Russia, everything would be fine, you fucking retard. Who are these Western nations causing instability near Russia? Which countries in the West have attacked or invaded Russia, and how can these Western countries interfere in a one horse election?

  • If Russia is so great, why care about Ukraine, Moldova etc.?

    Russia is a giant shithole full of non-russians and no toilets. Russia is so embarrassing, just saying.

    Regimes are to be found only in Belarus and mafia land. The other countries have normal governments. Regime changes for the better in the former countries would be highly welcome and a blessing for us all.

    • Imagine the outcry if the WH said Americans and Canadians are one people, and Canada will never be a real country until the US can run it.

        Normal-thinking people will ignore such rubbish blathering from the midget, who has never been nor ever will be seen as anything even close to being well-educated. He is only a monkey and chatters like one.

        • Problem is, there are not many normal people in the West with power. Most are jellyfish scared of their own shadow. Sorry to say it, but Biden is now promoted to joint chief jellyfish with Merkel. She’ll be out of it next month, when the next jellyfish gets elected but the US have another 3 years of Biden, unless he kicks the bucket, which could even be worse for the US, one of the squad could end up being POTUS.

          • I am downe to supporting people, not presidents. We have many genuine patriots and Ukraine-supporters in both the Congress and Senate. We may not be able to create majorities, but we now have huge support in the press. Every voice raised against Putin and his lackeys is a victory.

            You don’t have to be sorry. The truth can be said even if it hurts.

  • Soviet Canuckistan doesn’t need the US to destroy it. They are doing an excellent job without US assistance. Trudeau is an overgrown child doing an excellent job of drubbing his country. What’s left of it, that is.
