“We are meeting at a dramatic moment. The crises are growing, and the situation in the area of international security is deteriorating rapidly. Instead of having an honest dialogue and looking for compromises, what we're dealing with is disinformation, course stagings, and provocations. The western lie in here undermines the trust in international institutions as bodies where interests are agreed. It also undermines trust in international law as a guarantee of fairness and protecting the weak against the strong.”

6. SOUNDBITE (Russian) Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Russian Federation:
“The future of the world order is being decided today, and it is clear to any impartial observer. The question is whether or not it will be the kind of order with one hegemon at the head of it, making everyone else follow its rules, which notoriously benefit that hegemon only, or are we going to have a democratic, fair world without blackmail and the fear of Neo Nazism and Neo colonialism.”

8. SOUNDBITE (Russian) Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Russian Federation:
“Despite common sense, Washington and Brussels compounded the situation when they announced economic war against Russia. As a result, there is a growing price on foodstuffs, fertilizers, oil and gas. We welcome the efforts made by the Secretary General when they helped arrive at the Istanbul agreements on the 24th of June, but they need to be implemented. So far, the ships with the Ukrainian grain go somewhere but not into the poorest countries. On the other hand, the impediments by US and EU, the financial and logistical impediments against our grain and fertilizers have not been lifted.”

10. SOUNDBITE (Russian) Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Russian Federation:
“The incapacity of Western countries to negotiate and the continued war by the Kyiv regime against their own people, left us with no choice but to recognize the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republic and to start a special military operation to protect the Russian and other people on Donbass, and so as to remove the threats against our security, which NATO had been consistently creating in Ukraine at our borders.”

STORYLINE
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov today (24 Sep) said, the General Assembly’s General Debate is convening “at a dramatic moment” as “crises are growing, and the situation in the area of international security is deteriorating rapidly.”

Lavrov said, “instead of having an honest dialogue and looking for compromises, what we're dealing with is disinformation, course stagings, and provocations.”

He said, “the future of the world order is being decided today” adding that “the question is whether or not it will be the kind of order with one hegemon at the head of it, making everyone else follow its rules, which notoriously benefit that hegemon only, or are we going to have a democratic, fair world without blackmail and the fear of Neo Nazism and Neo colonialism.”

Lavrov said, “despite common sense, Washington and Brussels compounded the situation when they announced economic war against Russia. As a result, there is a growing price on foodstuffs, fertilizers, oil and gas.”

He welcomed Secretary-General António Guterres’ efforts towards the Black Sea Grain Initiative agreements but stressed that “they need to be implemented.”

So far, he said, “the ships with the Ukrainian grain go somewhere but not into the poorest countries. On the other hand, the impediments by US and EU, the financial and logistical impediments against our grain and fertilizers have not been lifted.”

The Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs said, “the incapacity of Western countries to negotiate and the continued war by the Kyiv regime against their own people, left us with no choice but to recognize the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republic and to start a special military operation to protect the Russian and other people on Donbass, and so as to remove the threats against our security, which NATO had been consistently creating in Ukraine at our borders.”
