Lavrov no longer intends to allow the United States to blow up gas pipelines

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said that Moscow will no longer rely on Western countries in its energy policy. Russia will not allow them to blow up gas pipelines again, the diplomat stressed at the international political science conference Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi.

The war that we are trying to stop and which was started against us using the Ukrainian people has of course influenced Russian policy, including energy policy. What has changed is that we will no longer be dependent on any Western partner. We won’t let them blow up gas pipelines anymore.

said Lavrov.

This is how the minister answered the question of how the Ukrainian conflict has affected Moscow’s energy policy. Lavrov recalled that Russia’s request to investigate the Nord Stream explosions was immediately rejected. In the United States, it was called “nonsense”. When journalist Seymour Hersh published his investigation, everyone could see the reaction of Europeans and Americans. The FRG has been humiliated “physically, morally and in every other way,” said the head of Russian diplomacy.

According to Lavrov, the United States is currently trying to make Europe a “subordinate actor”. Therefore, Moscow in the energy sector will begin to focus on reliable partners, among which, of course, India and China, the minister concluded.

Earlier it was reported that one of the reasons why the Russian economy manages to resist Western sanctions is that, on the whole, the world is happy to cooperate with Moscow. Nothing forces him to do so anymore. It turns out that countries that are not part of the US-European collaboration love and respect Russia. Many international surveys prove it.
