Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov once again criticized the West. "Recent events on the international stage have unveiled the true face of the West, which aspires to impose its order on the world," said a collaborator of Vladimir Putin.

Much of the information provided by Russian media or government officials constitutes propaganda. Such reports are part of the information war conducted by the Russian Federation.

Sergey Lavrov spoke during a meeting of BRICS foreign ministers in Nizhny Novgorod. The Russian Foreign Minister said that the West has long been trying to impose "beneficial norms and mechanisms of interaction" on other countries.

"Recent international events have unmasked those who so far have almost exclusively claimed the right to define so-called universal values, promoted as a rules-based order," declared the Kremlin propagandist.

He also directly criticized the United States. "The USA and its allies do not give up on attempts to maintain their waning dominance and slow down the emerging objective processes of multipolarity," Lavrov argued.

"They use economic instruments as weapons, trying through sanctions pressure and financial blackmail to influence the choice of development models and trade partners by sovereign states," he added, repeating the assertions of the Russian regime.

When will the war end? Putin spoke

During a press conference in St. Petersburg, an American journalist he asked Putin when the war in Ukraine might end. He set a condition that would mean an immediate defeat for Ukraine. He also threatened Western countries for delivering weapons to Ukraine.

Putin stated that since Ukraine is using Western weapons to attack Russian territory, the Kremlin may take "asymmetrical" actions and supply similar armaments to countries that will attack Western states.

"Using Western weapons to attack Russian territories requires the participation of military personnel from specific countries in operating the equipment, controlling it, and designating targets, in which case Russia may take such retaliatory steps as supplying similar types of weapons to other parties to attack selected countries," assessed the dictator.
