Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov affirmed this Friday that Russia will emerge strengthened from the recent internal crisis after the failed rebellion led by the private military group Wagner, Yevgeny Prigozhin, and that the West has nothing to worry about.


Russia repels attempted Ukrainian offensive in three directions

The Russian foreign minister held an online press conference in which he addressed the current international relations agenda, which included the military operation in Ukraine, the prospects for the expansion of the Brics group, and the failed mutiny attempt by the Wagner group, among others.

"From any event, and we could hardly use a stronger name, Russia always emerges stronger," Lavrov said, adding that it is difficult to characterize Yevgeny Prigozhin's mutiny attempt as anything stronger than "upheaval."

The Russian foreign minister thus responded to a foreign journalist who asked him about the stability of Russia after the recent armed revolt.

"We do not owe explanations to anyone (...) If in the West there are people who have some doubts about it, it is their problem," Lavrov said.

Regarding the special military operation in Ukrainian territory, the head of Russian diplomacy described as a "pure lie" the accusations against Moscow of allegedly preparing an explosion at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant.

"What they say (in Ukraine), that it looks like we're going to blow ourselves up while we're in a nuclear facility, is it necessary to comment? It's just a pure lie," he explained.

According to the foreign minister's statements, the kyiv authorities "present any delusions as the most up-to-date task for today and demand that the West support these delusional initiatives."

Regarding the Brics group (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), Lavrov pointed out that the objective (of the West) is not to allow the expansion of this entity,

He pointed out that the majority in the world "does not want to live according to Western rules and defends the universal norms of international law, embodied mainly in the Charter of the United Nations."

"The challenge that we have set ourselves, and that is shared by the vast majority of countries, is to guarantee that all the principles contained in the (UN) Charter are applied without exception in their entirety, not selectively, and in all their interconnection", stressed the chancellor.
