The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry said this during a press conference in Mozambique.

"One of the main puppeteers, those who incite the entire West to more and more open and more serious support for Ukraine, is London," TASS quoted Lavrov as saying.

According to him, the statement of the head of the British Foreign Office that the Ukrainian army "knows better how they want to ensure their territorial integrity" is "a direct incitement to what terrorists from Kiev are doing."

Earlier, British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly supported Kyiv's attacks on Russian territory. According to him, the Ukrainian authorities have the right to use force outside their borders.
