Lavrov: Any weapon on Ukrainian soil is a legitimate target for us

With the Russian military operation on Ukrainian soil entering its 66th day today, and despite continued Western support for Kiev, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed that any shipment of arms to Ukrainian soil is a legitimate target for the forces of his country.

In an interview with Al-Arabiya / Al-Hadath, he also stressed the need for the West, in particularly the United States and NATO countries, stop supplying arms to Ukraine if they want to resolve the crisis.

He explained that Moscow “knows who supplies Ukrainian forces with weapons and targets shipments when they arrive.”

“NATO is in war with us “

Regarding the status of NATO, which has become a spearhead in the Western conflict against Russia, against the background of the Ukrainian file, he stressed that his country is not in war with NATO, considering that NATO leaders consider themselves in war with Russia.

He also saw that after the fall of the Soviet Union, NATO went from defense to attack.

Furthermore, the Russian minister, who has been imposed by some Western countries sanctions against him and his family, made it clear that what was quoted about the outbreak of a nuclear war was not correct, underlining that tale option should not be presented to All.

It is noteworthy that since the launch of the Russian operation on the territory of the western neighbor on February 24, the West, in NATO countries in particular have sided with Kiev, flooding Ukrainian forces with weapons and equipment, while thousands of sanctions have been imposed on Russia.

This prompted Moscow to consider its concerns about alliance movements and expansions in Eastern Europe legitimate, noting that NATO, with its unprecedented support for Kiev, has demonstrated the correctness of Russian positions demanding security guarantees.
