During a press conference following talks with Indian Foreign Minister Subramanian Jaishankar, Lavrov expressed concern over the development of the situation in Donbass.
“To our great regret, so far the actions and reactions of our Western colleagues to the build-up of military infrastructure, to the transfer of troops to the line of contact in Donbass are disappointing.
As before, our Western colleagues ... proceed from the fact that it is necessary to support the Ukrainian authorities in every possible way, including in their absolutely unacceptable actions and statements, ”the Russian Foreign Minister noted.
According to him, the West does not react to Kiev's obvious violations of the Minsk agreements and threats from the Ukrainian authorities of military operations in Donbass.
“I hope that this will still help shake up such a benevolent attitude in European capitals, and that they will still require Mr. (President of Ukraine Volodymyr -
) Zelensky to fully implement the Minsk agreements,” Lavrov emphasized.
He called on the FRG and France to take more energetic and urgent actions "to bring the Ukrainian side to its senses."
Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine - Minister for "Temporarily Occupied Territories" Alexei Reznikov announced Kiev's refusal to take part in the negotiations in Minsk.
The press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the reality on the line of contact of forces in Donbass is frightening.
The head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic Denis Pushilin did not rule out the possibility of a full-scale Kiev attack on Donbass.
