Ukraine, Lavrov accuses: "Threats of Putin's assassination from the Pentagon"


The Russian foreign minister: 'The US wants a more violent conflict. From the West, you risk a clash between nuclear powers' (ANSA)

Statements released by "anonymous Pentagon officials" regarding a "decapitating attack" on the Kremlin speak of a threat of attempted assassination of President Vladimir Putin, Russian Foreign Minister

Sergey Lavrov

said in an interview with the Tass news agency.

"Some 'anonymous officials' of the Pentagon have actually voiced the threat of carrying out a 'decapitating attack' on the Kremlin, which is actually a threat of attempted assassination of the Russian president," Lavrov said.

"If such ideas are really pondered by someone, then this someone should think better about the possible consequences of such plans," the Russian Foreign Minister said.

"The political course of the West, which aims at the total repression of Russia, is extremely dangerous: it presents

risks of a direct armed confrontation between nuclear powers


Lavrov said again.

The Russian foreign minister stressed that Moscow has repeatedly stated that there can be no winners in a nuclear war and that it "must never be unleashed".

Instead, it is the West that - according to Lavrov - "with irresponsible speculation" claims "that Russia is presumably on the verge of using nuclear weapons against Ukraine".


The United States is doing everything to make the conflict in Ukraine even more violent

": Lavrov stated again in the interview.

"It is no secret that the strategic goal of the US and its NATO allies is to achieve a victory over Russia on the battlefield to weaken or even destroy our country," Lavrov said.

"Our adversaries will do anything to achieve this. Washington has also achieved the key geopolitical goal of severing traditional ties between Russia and Europe," he said.
