The West wants to make Russia an “obedient” country and a convenient territory for promoting its own interests, and these attempts are getting more and more fierce every day. This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during the ceremony of laying flowers at the memorial plaques in memory of the employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Foreign Trade who died during the war, the memory of the victims of the repressions of the 1930s and 1940s and the memory of the employees of the diplomatic service who died in the line of duty.
“You can see how the situation on the world stage is developing. Any attempts by Russia to become independent, to defend its right to an independent foreign policy, to defend international law are meeting with increasingly fierce resistance from our Western colleagues who want to make us, by and large,“ obedient ” , they want to force us to agree with those very dubious interpretations of universal values that they themselves profess and which contradict the Russian cultural tradition, our civilizational traditions, “the minister added.
According to him, Western countries want to turn Russia into a territory for pursuing their interests in the security, economic, and socio-political spheres.
The minister also added that in order to advance the foreign policy course determined by the President of Russia, it is necessary to use the strength, knowledge and experience of Russian diplomats, relying on the wisdom of their predecessors.
