Foreign Minister Lavrov says Russia wants regime change in Ukraine

Foreign Minister Lavrov says Russia wants regime change in Ukraine

Thus Lavrov contradicted his statements made in April. “We have no intention of regime change in Ukraine,” he said in an interview with India Today TV. “It is up to the Ukrainians to decide which government they want to live under,” he said.

In recent days, the Russian government has toughened its stance on the war in Ukraine anyway. For example, Lavrov said on Wednesday that the country’s goals extend beyond the Donbass region in eastern Ukraine. Other areas of the country also have to be occupied.” This will be necessary because Ukraine has a constantly growing stock of Western weapons, with a long range. Russia wants to keep these weapons as far as possible from the eastern regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, which Moscow recognizes as independent.

Until recently, the Kremlin said that Russia’s war goals were Ukraine’s ceding of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions and the recognition of Crimea, which Russia annexed early in 2014, to Russia.

Lavrov is in Africa to strengthen relations with countries that have anti-Western sentiments. In Cairo, for example, he meets members of the Arab League. He then travels to Ethiopia and Uganda, two countries whose relations with the West have come under strain, and to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
