West’s "total hybrid war" on Russia will affect everyone, can't predict how long will last: Lavrov

by News Update

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday that the West has announced a “total hybrid war” against Russia and it was hard to predict how long it would last.

In a speech on the 80th day since Russia invaded Ukraine, Lavrov pointed to the barrage of sanctions imposed by the West against Moscow and attempted to portray Russia as the target, not the perpetrator, of aggression.

“The collective West has declared total hybrid war on us and it is hard to predict how long all this will last but it is clear the consequences will be felt by everyone, without exception,” he said in a speech.

“We did everything to avoid a direct clash, but now that the challenge has been thrown down, we of course accept it. We are no strangers to sanctions: they were almost always there in one form or another.”

Efforts by the West to isolate Russia are doomed to fail, Lavrov said, while pointing to the importance of Russia’s relations with China, India, Algeria and Gulf countries.

Kadyrov: One of the brightest results of the fighters of the Akhmat special forces, achieved jointly with the military personnel of the LPR, is the capture of the Zarya chemical plant. Its industrial zone is several kilometers long and wide.

If you actually look into what was done to the Afghan people they used media like they are doing to us and pushed an LGBT, feminist agenda on the people and like the "Taliban" they went after culture and historic monuments.

You should all be asking yourselves what did the pretext of 911 allow western "leaders" to do.
