Lavrov issued a warning: Communication with Europe may be terminated

Moscow will be forced to stop for some time the dialogue with Brussels, if the European Union does not want to communicate with Russia in a constructive manner. This warning was made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during the event of the Valdai International Discussion Club.

Lavrov noted that those in charge of external policies in the West, do not understand the need for mutually respectful communication. Therefore, Russia can stop talking to them altogether.

Moreover, Ursula von der Leyen said that geopolitical partnership with the current Russian government is not working. So be it if they want it

- Lavrov explained.

The foreign minister recalled that a few weeks ago the head of the European Commission made a very serious statement. She said that it is important for Europeans to part with the illusion that Russians will be able to restore the status of Europe's geopolitical partner.

The minister added that there is a large number of facts about how the European Union behaves inappropriately and unacceptably towards Russia in connection with the situation concerning Alexei Navalny. And now Moscow wants to find out for itself whether it is generally possible to do anything with the arrogant and moralizing Brussels under the current circumstances.

The Foreign Minister drew attention to the fact that it is time for Russia to stop measuring itself with "that yardstick", considering its Western partners as a source of assessments of its behavior. In his opinion, Moscow no longer needs to look back to the West.

    uh ... well, he won't talk for a couple of minutes, so what?

    Have you already stopped communicating with their parliamentarians, and?
    Either Pestsov's daughter is an assistant to the Euro-deputy, then Yusovka in YUSA will shuffle and light up to the congressmen at the party, then all the Duma members will stand up and applaud the Yusovites ...

    Well, Ursula, as a generalist, maybe the whole problem is better known in depth? Maybe our Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not understand this specialist? laughing laughing laughing

    In Brussels, of course, they were very scared, they already probed the current Kremlin power with the story of the EP, then we caved in and paid the money, and now we listen very attentively, for our own money, they pour slop on the country. That's all the decisiveness, one thing pleases, it means we have not yet been driven into a corner and the time has not yet come to beat us

    With all due respect to Mr. Lavrov, why only now

    It is time for Russia to stop measuring itself by “that yardstick,” considering its Western partners as a source of assessments of its behavior. 


    Moscow no longer needs to look back to the West.

    just now, not 10 years ago?
    We can send the great and the mighty statistic options! It should have been done for a long time!

      Naturally, the statement of this gentleman is designed for an internal audience - Russian and nothing more. From the international rostrum from this gentleman you can hear only: exhortations, requests to change your mind, endless regrets and concerns are expressed. What can be the "termination of partnership" if all the loot of the Kremlin fraternity is crammed into foreign banks, and even with various encumbrances, such as: the impossibility of transferring to other places, or spending within a certain time, or spending without a decision of a certain circle of people, etc. ...

    That's right, stop looking back at those whom Russia once taught to wash! Our rich and self-sufficient country behaves with an eye on the geyrope, which the United States does not care about and communicates like with blacks on plantations! It is time to "put in the stall" these who think they are carriers of "the ultimate truth". Have you forgotten how in 1941, together with the "possessed Fuhrer", they tried to "divide" our country and how did it all end for them ?! Was your face combed back again? So you can respect!

      I propose to abandon the extension of contracts for the supply of hydrocarbons to the EU and stop buying their equipment and goods. No more Sapsans and Siemens MRI machines, no other medical equipment! Auto Mercedes and Volkswagen to crush tractors, outlaw. (Make an exception for officials and oligarchs). And by analogy.
      Our citizens will understand (will not go anywhere).

    Let's see what this threat from Lavrov will result in ... Has it finally reached the point that it is only necessary to use a crowbar against scrap.
    And it is high time for Frau von der Leyen to be given the Russian Order for the successful operation of the collapse and degradation of the most powerful European NATO army - the Bundeswehr, while this lady was at the post of the FRG Ministry of Defense.
    Now she's been put in charge of EU policy - well, a flag in hand. So she will soon work on the hero of labor of the Russian Federation ... Maybe we will go there too ... that ??? ... wink

    Do you know what is the main prize of wars ?!) Markets for your products! Russia gave its markets to Eastern Europe, gave the markets of the countries of the former USSR, and most importantly its markets. Almost all consumer goods produced in Russia belong to the West. The names of the products are Russian, but the owners through the offshore are foreigners! For decades, Russia has been supplying cheap raw materials to the West in exchange for their products ... Europe has become so insolent that now it is getting into our internal affairs openly. ... I support Lavrov, it's time to start living "with your own mind" .... Yes, it will be hard, but it is temporary ... Remember before the sanctions, our food industry has practically died. Now many products have begun to be produced by ourselves! I will say more, the West will lose more from quarreling with Russia.

    I watched this interview for a couple of minutes, I couldn't go on, laughed. I should have seen the sharpening of the horse))). Like, we leaked everything to you, we killed a lot of our people. They messed up and ruined the whole country. They turned people into cattle. appreciated our lack of servility and everything acquired by back-breaking labor ... In short, it's time for him to retire, but better on a bunk with the boss, so it would be fair.
