“Everyone understands perfectly well that the only goal of the West, with which we clashed at our very borders, is to weaken and bleed Russia as much as possible,” Nebenzi was quoted as saying by TASS.

As for the dream of Western strategists, the Russian permanent representative noted, it is the dismemberment of Russia and its subjugation to its will.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an address to Russian citizens, said that the goal of the collective West is to weaken and destroy Russia.
