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 can’t even compare closely with Primakov. I didn’t directly answer a single question, maybe because I’m trying to be kind to everyone. About the shameful demolition of monuments throughout Europe and the concern of the Foreign Ministry, about speeches without a coat of arms and without a flag. And why not give an assessment of the Foreign Ministry of the 90s. Maybe you sometimes need to show a “grin” and call a spade a spade?

      If a soldier says “YES”, then that 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 foolish neighbor who answers your question in the affirmative, and later behaves "exactly the opposite"? Adequate people are welcome, and the behavior is appropriate. Remember the behavior of Khrushchev ... I dragged the whole family to the USA, was delighted with this state, made Russia fall in love with corn. And later, when "Uncle Sam" began to condescendingly "pat him on the shoulder," he suddenly remembered his own significance, and began to scaredly "swell", and sputter, and threaten with atomic weapons.
        Already in the early 80s of the last century, the children of the so-called "nomenclatures" 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. Under greenhouse conditions, no one told the growing idiots that Satanism was the spiritual basis of "capitalism", no one had explained to them that it was not the "villas" and "hacienda" that were waiting for them, but that they were waiting for them. Rushed to cuddle with a healthy killer maniac? So why did you suddenly “bleat” like a lamb? Did you expect pleasant tricks from him?
