Lavrov told what kind of Russia he was ashamed of

On October 20, 2019, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergey Lavrov gave an interview to Russia 1 TV channel, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) of the Russian Foreign Ministry. In the process of communication, he told, for what periods in the history of our country he was ashamed of most.

Each person with such properties as decency, honesty, has moments when he is not very comfortable with what is happening in his country. It is very individual and personal.

- said Lavrov.

The Minister noted that in his life there were several similar cases and all of them were connected with the period when the Soviet Union was falling apart.

I don’t want to give anyone an assessment now, but this was due to the way a number of famous people behaved in that situation

- specified Lavrov.

It should be recalled that in September 2017, Lavrov, speaking at the UN General Assembly, said that over the years since the collapse of the USSR, Russia has honestly gone the way of getting rid of the legacy of the Cold War. However, it did not meet the support of partners, although it did a lot to strengthen confidence and mutual understanding in the Euro-Atlantic area and in the world as a whole. He stated that Moscow did not wait for reciprocity from the West. The principle of Western policy he outlined with one phrase - "he who is not with us is against us."

    Yes, one cannot even closely compare with Primakov. Not a single question was answered directly, maybe because he is trying to be kind to everyone. About the shameful demolition of monuments throughout Europe and the concern of the Foreign Ministry, about performances without a coat of arms and without a flag. Why not give an assessment to the Foreign Ministry of the 90s now. Maybe you sometimes need to show your grin and call things by their proper names?

      If the soldier says "YES", then it is definitely YES.
      If a diplomat says "NO", then this is not a diplomat.

        It is justified to compare the behavior of the state with the behavior of an individual. Would you like to communicate with a jerk neighbor who answers your question in the affirmative, and later behaves "exactly the opposite"? Adequate people are encouraged, and the behavior is appropriate. Remember the behavior of Khrushchev ... He dragged his entire family to the United States, admired this state, made Russia love corn. And later, when "Uncle Sam" began to condescendingly "pat him on the shoulder," he suddenly remembered his own importance, and began to scared "pout", and spit saliva, and threaten with atomic weapons.
        Already in the early 80s of the last century, children of the so-called. The "nomenklatura" firmly decided for themselves that they would definitely play "capitalism" on Russian soil. Idiots grew up on everything ready, they knew about America only from the words of their parents and from the program "International Panorama", but the desire was strong. In hothouse conditions, no one told the grown-up idiots that the spiritual basis of "capitalism" was Satanism, no one explained to them that it was not "villas" and "hacienda" that awaited them, but about n ts lager. Rushing to hug with a healthy maniac killer? So why did you suddenly "bleat" like a lamb? Did you expect pleasant tricks from him?
