Sergey Lavrov promises full protection for any territory annexed by Russia. Ukraine’s immediate reaction


Sergey Lavrov


The head of Russian diplomacy, Sergey Lavrov, declared in New York that the regions of Ukraine where referendums are held will be under the full protection of Russia if they are annexed by Moscow.

The Russian Foreign Minister, addressing the UN General Assembly and the world media, tried to justify the invasion of Ukraine that began in February, repeating Moscow’s false claims that the government elected in Kyiv was installed illegitimately, is full of neo -Nazis, and in the east of the country Russian speakers are oppressed, reports Reuters, quoted by Agerpres.

On Friday, Russia launched referendums in four regions of eastern Ukraine (Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye), with the aim of annexing these territories taken by force.

Following those referendums, Russia will, of course, respect the expression of the will of those people who for many years have suffered from the abuses of the neo-Nazi regime” Lavrov declared in a press conference, after the intervention in the General Assembly.
