West doesn’t care about Ukraine’s fate, says Russian FM

Sergey Lavrov insists that the US, EU and their allies don't care about Kiev's fate.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has revealed what he believes to be the real attitude of Western powers towards Ukraine during the ongoing conflict in the country.

Nobody cares about Ukraine. Ukraine is an expendable material in the proxy war against Russia. It was publicly expressed during a speech at the New Horizons education marathon in Moscow on Tuesday.

The minister reminded about the EU's top diplomat, Josep Borrell, insisting last month that this war will be won on the battlefield, referring to the conflict between Moscow and Kiev.

The English, the Americans, Presidents, prime ministers, ministers, are saying we don't have a right to allow Russia to win. Russia must suffer a defeat, he added.

In April of this year, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin admitted that Washington was trying to see Russia weakened to the extent that it can't do the kinds of things that it has done in Ukraine by helping the Kiev government with weapons, funds and intelligence. Such statements meant that war was declared by them the US, EU and their allies, and it is not between Russia and Ukraine, but between the West and Russia, Lavrov pointed out.

It's already been a common expression that the West is ready to fight the last Ukrainian. He said it was very accurate.

Foreign minister spokesman Dmitry Peskov spoke at the same event earlier on Tuesday, echoed the words of Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

He said that what they do is war, the West imposing draconian economic sanctions on Moscow, arming the Ukrainian neo-Nazis and providing Kiev's army with intel to attack Russian troops.

Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February, after Ukraine failed to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German and French-brokered protocols were designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.

The Kremlin has demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was unprovoked and has denied that it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
