Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov confirmed that the West's policy aimed at containing Russia is very dangerous and risks slipping into a direct armed clash between the nuclear powers.

"Irresponsible speculation that Russia is about to use nuclear weapons against Ukraine is constantly being launched in the West, as Western politicians sharpen the rhetoric on this issue and they are the ones who should be asked if this trend is It will continue in 2023,” noting that Moscow “repeatedly repeated that there can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never be unleashed.”

In a related context, Lavrov warned that the Kyiv regime is trying to drag the United States and other NATO members into the depth of the crisis in Ukraine for a direct clash with Russia.

Lavrov said, "It is enough to remember the provocation of last November 15 with the fall of a Ukrainian air defense missile on the territory of Poland, which Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky falsely tried to pin it on Russia," adding: It is good that Washington and Brussels at that time had a sense of not falling into a quarrel. This trick, but the incident showed that the Ukrainian regime will stop at nothing.

Lavrov indicated that Moscow will not stop warning its enemies in the West about the danger of escalation of the Ukrainian crisis, and he said: “With the group that they formed in Kyiv, the risk of an uncontrolled development of the situation is still very high. It is important to prevent a catastrophe,” calling for “the implementation of proposals The demilitarization of the territories controlled by Kyiv and the elimination of security threats, otherwise the Russian army will resolve the issue.

Regarding the duration of the conflict in Ukraine, Lavrov said, "The ball regarding this issue is in the hands of the Ukrainian regime and Washington behind it, and at any moment they can stop the absurd resistance."

In response to statements by US officials from the Pentagon about directing the so-called (decapitation strike) to the Kremlin, Lavrov considered that these statements represented a "threat to the physical liquidation of the head of the Russian state."

Lavrov pointed out that “Washington went further than everyone else, and if someone sponsored such ideas, he should think carefully about the possible consequences of such plans,” stressing that “the actions and references of Western officials to a nuclear confrontation show that they have completely abandoned tact. Liz Terrace, the former British Prime Minister, announced during the pre-election debate that she was fully prepared to issue an order to launch a nuclear strike, not to mention the illogical provocations of the Kyiv regime, as it came to Zelensky, the head of the Ukrainian regime, to ask NATO countries to launch preemptive nuclear strikes on Russia, and this also exceeds limits of what is acceptable.

On the other hand, Lavrov stressed that Moscow is ready to discuss security issues, whether with regard to the situation around Ukraine or at the strategic level with Washington when the latter is ripe for that. on the basis of mutual respect and equality, with obligatory observance of legitimate Russian interests.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier that Moscow does not refuse dialogue or negotiations regarding Ukraine, noting that "the basis of the conflict in Ukraine is the policy of Moscow's geopolitical opponents, which aims to dismantle historical Russia."
