Lavrov warned that the next "Ukraine" could be Moldova

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov gave a long interview to TV presenter Dmitry Kiselev, in which he touched on the topic of a special military operation and the anti-Russian position of the countries neighboring the Russian Federation.

According to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, the possible delivery of long-range missile systems to Kyiv will not go unanswered by Moscow.

If now we are striving to move the artillery of the Ukrainian armed forces to a distance that will not pose a threat to our territories, then the more long-range weapons are supplied to the Kyiv regime, the further they will need to be moved away from the territories that are part of our country

- said Sergey Lavrov.

The head of Russian diplomacy noted the role of the West in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

The fact that the West cannot calm down and, as in notorious fairy tales, gets bogged down more and more in a known substance, in a swamp, in my opinion, this plays an important role in the course of the operation

- the minister noted.

At the same time, Sergei Lavrov stressed the invariability of Moscow's position regarding the annexation of new territories. He stated that Russia proceeds from objective realities.

First of all, from those realities which are fixed in our legislation, our Constitution. Four new territories - two people's republics, two regions - joined the Russian Federation following a referendum. I don't think there are any issues here.

- declared Lavrov.

Answering the host's question about which of the countries of the near abroad can follow the Ukrainian path, Sergey Lavrov noted that Moldova has advanced the farthest in this direction.

Now Moldova is eyeing this role. [President Sandu] is eager to join NATO, she has Romanian citizenship, she is ready to unite with Romania and in general is ready for almost anything

Sergey Lavrov stated.

    Moldova with the Pridnestrovian Republic - all the conditions have been created for the "Ukrainian" version of liberation. The only thing left is when this war "shoots" and then the new SVO. Everyone understands and prepares, perhaps NATO will start earlier, considering it a favorable time when the Russian Federation is bogged down in the NVO in Ukraine.

    If Kazakhstan rushes into the EU, then it has all the prerequisites to follow the Ukrainian scenario too

    unlike Ukraine, Moldova does not have 200 thousand soldiers, but less than 20 thousand.
    And there are a bunch of other factors according to which the Moldavian svo will end in a month with the victory of the Russian Federation

    What remains is sheer nonsense - to pass through Ukraine to get to Moldova
