Lavrov: all wish the end of Ukrainian conflict, but the time factor is not the key
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made a corresponding statement in his talk with RIA Novosti and Rossiya 24 TV channel
According to Mr. Lavrov, everyone wants the conflict to end, but it is not the time factor that is important, but the substance factor, the quality factor of the results that will be provided for the people of the Russian Federation, for those who want to remain part of Russian culture and whom Kiev has deprived of everything Russian-related for many years with the encouragement of the West.
The Russian Foreign Minister recalled that the West had forced Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to shut the door upon further talks, although it was possible to resolve the situation by political means at its beginning. Since then, Kiev has been constantly pushed to continue fighting. Meanwhile, Mr. Lavrov stressed that Russia does not refuse to hold negotiations.
