Lavrov calls on Washington and NATO to stop arming Ukraine

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the United States to stop supplying Kiev with weapons if they are “genuinely interested in solving the Ukrainian crisis”.

In an interview published on Saturday by the official Chinese news agency, Lavrov also pointed out that the Russian attack in Ukraine is going “according to plan”, adding that “a steady stream of all kinds of weapons has entered in Ukraine through Poland and other NATO countries, and whether the US and NATO are genuinely interested in resolving the crisis. “First of all, they should wake up and stop supplying arms and ammunition to the Kiev regime.”

Lavrov stressed that the Russian attack is going as planned and said that “the special military operation started on February 24 is going according to plan and all the objectives of the special military operation will be achieved despite the obstruction of our opponents” .
