Yesterday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the UN Security Council that despite a ceasefire and the establishment of humanitarian corridors by the Syrian & Russian governments, Western-backed rebels in the Eastern Ghouta suburbs, “still continue shelling Damascus, blocking aid deliveries and the evacuation of those wishing to leave. Now, it is the turn for the militants and their sponsors to act.”
Today at a meeting of the UN Conference on Disarmament Lavrov continued to expose those “sponsors”, this time accusing the US of circumventing nuclear disarmament efforts by training European armies to use tactical nuclear weapons against Russia.
Lavrov stated, “As we all know, these nuclear missions violate the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and non-nuclear states plan and take part in the US exercises and learn how to use the nuclear weapons. It should be clear to one and all that the US military thereby prepares European countries for using tactical nuclear weapons against Russia.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin put an exclamation point on Lavrov’s frustration today when, following a meeting with Austrian Prime Minister Sebastian Kurz, he told reporters that Russia would not tolerate more shelling of Damascus from Eastern Ghouta rebels, stating that already the Russian embassy had been hit by one such missile.
Meanwhile, on February 25th, while attempting to fabricate another chemical weapons claim against Assad, the “sponsors” carried out airstrikes in Syria’s eastern Dayr al-Zawr province, killing 29 civilians and injuring many others.
The New York Times even tried to tie North Korea to Syria’s alleged chemical weapons based on a “leaked UN report”, as the bellicose rhetoric from the US toward North Korea ramps up.
It was also announced that the US will be sending a vast array of weaponry to the illegitimate Poroschenko government in Kiev, as Ukraine’s fascists continue to issue threats that they will attempt to retake the Donetsk People’s Republic in the pro-Russian east.
The Anglo-American war machine continues to provoke Russia on nearly every stretch of its border. How much longer before the awakened bear imposes its will?
