Amid the growing tensions between Moscow and the West, in particularly the United States, which has imposed thousands of sanctions on it since the beginning of its military operation in Ukraine, the spokesman for the Russian foreign ministry described a US initiative to classify Russia as a sponsoring state of terrorism, as a “stupid measure that will not go unanswered”.
“All the measures they take, even the stupid ones, no doubt, will not go unanswered,” said Maria Zakharova, according to the TV channel Russia Today. “They have to understand that.”
“invent and compose”
As for the possibility of excluding his country from the Security Council, he stressed that this step is not at all possible, saying: “This mechanism in in the first place it does not exist “.
He also added: “Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previously pointed out that there is no such mechanism, but they can invent, speak and invent some formulas . there is simply no such procedure.”
Interestingly, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in earlier he hinted at Washington’s willingness to consider Russia a sponsor state of terrorism, against the backdrop of the crimes and violations it accused Russian forces of having committed on Ukrainian soil since February 24th.
Britain and other Western countries have alluded to the exclusion of Russia, which is a permanent member of the Security Council, mainly because it has a veto weapon that allows it to block any unsolved resolution. in in line with its objectives on Ukraine or other dossiers in the United Nations.
These demands and insinuations have come as the Russian military operation on the territory of the western neighbor continues for its third month, amid Russian assurances that it is continuing to “liberate” the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine, despite all Western appeals. to calm and a solution that establishes the pace between the two sides.
