Lavrov outlines Russian claims beyond Donbas 

Moscow isn’t limiting itself at seizing Donbas, but intends to conquer all of southern Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with Russian propaganda agency RIA Novosti on July 20.

Despite its stalled offensives Donbas and elsewhere, the Kremlin has yet to limit the scope of its territorial ambitions in Ukraine.

According to Lavrov, the supply of long-range Western weapons to Ukraine has “altered geographical objectives,” and Russia now aims to claim not only Donbas, but also Kherson and Zaporizhzhia oblasts, along with “a number of other territories.”

Lavrov threatened to expand Russia’s goals even further if Ukraine continues to receive support from the West.

After five months of war, Russia controls only the Donbas, Crimea, and Kherson Oblast, while military reports indicate continued degradation of Russian combat capability and logistics.

    Russia are moving everything back, out of range of the Himars, so I have no idea how the orcs will claim even more territory. I expect more goodwill gestures from the rapist army, not advances.

  2. Lavrov is a staggeringly evil nazi who speaks only the language of lies and hate. But I believe him on this one. They intend to take all of these territories and are deadly serious in their ambitions. If they succeeded, they would of course take Kyiv too.
    The Budapest signatories have been aware of this since last year, yet they STILL have not given Ukraine the wherewithal to defend themselves from RuZZian savagery; where are the air defences? And they STILL have not given them everything they need to kick the putinazis out before winter kicks in.
    FFS do it now.

  3. People who bite off a bigger chunk than they can chew often choke to death. Mafia land is gasping for air and still wants to shove the next chunk into its filthy mouth. They will choke to death on Ukraine.
