Head of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov addressed students and professors at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations. In his speech, he stressed that the modern world faced threats that were more dangerous than those during the Second World war.
“Today, the situation in the world is certainly not as bloody as the situation that developed during the Second World war, but the risks are much greater, and they are not less serious,” Lavrov said.
Lavrov attributed terrorism and drug-related crime to modern challenges. The Minister noted that every year they claim a large number of lives.
According to Lavrov, one of the main problems that are facing the entire international community is the unwillingness of the number of countries, which are led by the United States, to recognize the objective reality and the formation of a new system of international relations with new power centers. Attempts to ignore this reality and prevent the formation of relations that respectfully take into account new world balance of power, were assessed by the Foreign Minister as short-sighted and dangerous.
“The West refuses to conduct a dialogue on equal terms, does not recognize the multipolar polycentric reality and tries to maintain its dominant position by using illegitimate methods such as sanctions, direct intervention, and so on,” Lavrov said.
Lavrov stressed that Russia remained committed to the principle of a multilateral approach to solving problems, primarily within the framework of the United Nations. At the UN, Russia, together with a large group of countries from Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, is promoting partnership aiming to defend the core principles of the organization’s Charter. This policy can be considered an irrefutable confirmation of the commitment to the principles of multilateralism.
When asked by one of the students to compare the current geopolitical situation with an another period, Lavrov drew parallels between the current events and the period of the Second World war, stating the need to unite in front of a common enemy as a unifying feature between the two eras.
“Now we also have many common enemies, against which we must unite. Therefore, if we follow the logic – humanity and the common enemy, yes, the Second World was about this situation. But now we still do not have enough awareness of the threats that confront us, ” the Minister replied.
Earlier, Russian security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev accused the West of implementation of the techniques of Reich Minister of Public Education and Propaganda Joseph Goebbels. According to Patrushev, the West calls for unity against “common enemies”, including Russia. According to the official, thus the West creates conditions “for the emergence of ideas of national-state superiority.”
Today, one of the main points of confrontation is the escalated situation in Belarus. The Baltic States imposed sanctions against Belarus and banned Lukashenko and 29 other Belarusian officials from entering their territories for five years.
Sergey Lavrov also commented on the current situation, assessing Lithuania’s actions as unacceptable:
“Our Lithuanian neighbors have, in my opinion, already crossed all the boundaries of decency in the demand that they put forward. And we have reason to believe that they and Ms. Svetlana Tikhanovskaya are not using democratic methods at all, ” the Minister said. He added that these methods “do not show much” respect for the sovereignty of Belarus, since there are attempts to destabilize the situation in the Republic .
Despite the emphasis of the Lavrov’s message on the current confrontation between the collective West and the East, it is clear from the speech that the world is facing a more dangerous threat. By referring to the “common enemy” for all mankind, Russian Minister seems to imply the threats beyond the traditional agenda of the Great Game.

The comparison with the Second World War shows the nuclear powers need to avoid a third. The pattern of history warns we are very close. https://www.ghostsofhistory.wordpress.com/
Yes but the west seems to be doing all it can to start a third
Russia has an expert diplomat with Lavrov & the US has that tub of lard Pompeo.
Who lies, cheats and steals.
kind of obvious statement, but yes
Lithuania the most disgracefull neighbour any nation could imagine,poland ought to reclaim their capital!
Sock it to em Sergey. Shysters in the west hate hearing the truth. In fact, hate and fear is their game, and that is all they want to hear. The power structures on the planet are changing. To try and prevent this with force will result in bankruptcy, both morally and economically.
Russia’s Su-57 Fighter Will Reportedly Get ‘Invisibility Cloak’ Since mass production of the Sukhoi Su-57 began last year, developers have announced a number of add-ons for the fifth-generation fighter, ranging from new hypersonic missiles to plans to allow it to control swarms of drones. Russia’s Su-57 fighter jets are going to receive special protective cloaks to shield them from bad weather and enemy radar detection while they are on their airfields, with delivery of the cloaks set to begin next year, Izvestia has reported, citing sources in the military and the military industry. According to the newspaper, the cloaks will be made of radar signal-reflecting polymers, with each plane will receive over a dozen separate, specially-fitted covers for its fuselage, wings, cockpit, stabilisers, air intakes, wheels and other components. In addition to cloaking the plane, the coverings will protect the planes’ external electronics, including antennae, sensors, radar and optical and electronic systems from the elements. Lt. Gen. Valery Gorbenko, former commander of the 4th Air Force and Air Defence Army, told Izvestia that the cloaks will deprive the potential adversary of information such as where the planes are based, how many there are, as well as where and from where they have been transferred…………….
Prototype of Hypersonic Missile Designed for Su-57 Fighter Jet Ready for Testing – Reports
Late last year, Russian aerospace and defence giant United Aircraft Corporation confirmed that new weapons systems designed especially for the Su-57 had been developed or were in active development, without elaborating. A prototype hypersonic missile designed for use aboard Russia’s new Su-57 fifth-generation stealth fighter has been created, a defence sector source had told Russian media. The source described the missile as a small, air-to-surface weapon designed to be carried inside the plane’s fuselage, and said it has yet to be tested aboard the plane. No other details about the weapon’s characteristics or who developed it were made available, and the reports have yet to be commented on by anyone at UAC, Sukhoi or the military.
The defence sector first teased the possibility of deploying hypersonic missiles similar to the Kinzhal hypersonic, nuclear-capable missile in 2018. Kinzhal was deployed into service aboard the MiG-31K in December 2017, and a version of the missile for the Tu-160 ‘White Swan’ strategic bombers is also being developed. The weapon is believed to have an operational range of up to 3,000 km, and a flight speed of Mach 10-Mach 12 (12,250-14,700 km per hour). Large-scale deliveries of the Su-57 into Russia’s aerospace forces are expected to begin later this year. The aircraft is a fifth-generation stealth superiority fighter created by the JSC Sukhoi Company. The planes are intended to eventually replace the MiG-29 and Su-27 in Russia’s Aerospace Force and Navy, and are equipped with advanced avionics, airborne active phased radar, ELINT and a variety of high-precision weaponry.
One of the few politicians I have the highest respect for.
They only want people from central Africa in this world. Exept the chosen ones. So the population of Russia and China will be replaced. The chosen ones will go to Syria, Lebanon, Iraq….
NEW ARMATA: From Transparent Armor to Laser Defenses The T-14’s unmanned turret is quite unique today, and is one of the major features which distinguishes it from third-generation battle tank designs and places it as one of just three fourth-generation tanks in service today. Specialists from the Testing Institute have proposed upgrades to the turret to integrate missiles based on the ‘fire and forget and fire again’ principle, an onboard reconnaissance and signal relay drone, supersonic sub-caliber armor-piercing projectiles and fuel-air explosive munitions. Under the proposed upgraded program which would include the 152mm gun, the T-14 would also integrate subsystems for automatically detecting and striking targets in probable areas of tank approaches up to 1 km away, laser equipment for disabling anti-tank guided missiles and systems to remotely deactivate anti-tank mines. T-14 Armata Next Generation Battle Tank Further new technologies being proposed for the T-14 include a more efficient 1,500 hp diesel engine, dual manual control of both weapons and the engine, and improved ergonomics and habitability. ‘Transparent armor,’ a technology resembling the distributed aperture systems integrated onto Chinese J-20 stealth fighters, will improve the crew’s situational awareness, and advanced decision-making support systems able to automatically identify targets up to 6 km away have also been proposed to upgrade the Armata. The upgrade will also provide defense against blinding laser weapons, all-out shielding against rocket-propelled grenade launchers and anti-tank guided missiles, and improved protection for onboard electronics against electromagnetic and microwave weapons. It remains uncertain which, if any of these upgrades, will be integrated onto the T-90M tank, which entered service in 2020 as a lighter and cheaper counterpart to the T-90 and integrates many of the same technologies.
Well, I respect way more Lavrov than putin. At least he isn’t a dugin fanboy
(((the common enemy of all mankind))) Seems to me some high ranking russian official finally woke up
Yes, he realized America doesn’t take Russia seriously enough.
The day the united states was controlled by americans have long since passed and gone
never was true—in the mid 1800’s Vissaron Belinsky wrote, “Tsarist Russia is more free and just than amerika where corporations rule and robbery and thievery is made official”. Charles Beard described the US constitution as “a ruling class document”. Kurt Godel observed that the US constitution contains inherent contradictions that encourages dictatorship—now a military dictatorship, inverted totalitarianism (Wolin) police state, oligarchy
u nazi girls take Russia and China quite seriously—otherwise u would post your banal stupidity here and your media and politicians would not be obsessed w Russia/China/ Venezuela, etc…u are fully aware your plywood empire is crumbling…your females r obese, masculine—so insecure that they require parent effectiveness training—obviously they fail “amerikan parents teach their children to have bad manners: they believe this is rebelliousness”. Geoffrey Gorer….quite obvious for anyone that has lived in the land of the self uglified amerikan…BLM= under socialized racist whites without any fathers—tantrums
Obviously your life is bright and colorful while you are a witty person with many friends you make laugh at the parties
U.S. doesnt even takes itself serious.
Life is too short for being serious.
I agree to a degree.
the worlds formost problem
Nothing is sliding by the Russians, that is what Secretary Lavrov was saying.
Humanity’s common enemy is the axis of evils. The United States and its Nato 70 countries Inherent resolve Freedom Coalition will take that enemy by the horn. US and its Allies will defend humanity!
We will fight a war against the corona thing, the clima change and against everybody who uses and make irresponsible CO2, and against those who refuses to be green and who refuses vaccinations.
US is the guarantee for war against the terrorists, a war against drugs, and war against anybody who discriminate against the black people, the Jewish people and against gays, wars to get peace!!
With Russia’s quagmire in Syria, Russia’s quagmire at home, Russia gobbling gold and landmasses for itself, Russia is obviously not the solution for innocent populations, but the problem………..LOL.
axis of stupidity and immorality—USA/UK/Canada sure–you are innocent anti-authoritarian children that have murdered 30 million since 1945…u r the quintessential fascist terrorist—war against drugs? unable to feel pleasure as Zizek writes, u sexually repressed money worshippers consume more coke, meth, marijuana, heroin, hallucinogens per capita than any other nation—your rape experts claim that fewer than 20% r reported yet you have the most per capita than all nations and illiterate idiots believe they have the audacity to believe they can judge how civilized people govern themselves—farcical tammy
You are upset because you can’t afford enough vodka and switched on krokodil
Obama’s job is to lie to a nation of liarsKiese Laymon these fascist backward immoral cretins murder and torture civilized peoples….one cannot expect these automatons to reform their sexually repressed decadent empire—collapse will occur in 5-8 years—-these money worshipping hyperactive morons as described to me by an amerikan academic in Moscow believe that freedom is the choice between coke and Pepsi
