File photoMOSCOW, June 16Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia did not invade Ukraine, the special operation was announced when there was no other way to point out to the West that Kyiv was being criminally drawn into NATO.”We did not invade A special military operation was announced when we had no way to explain to the West that it is engaged in criminal activities, dragging Ukraine into NATO, cherishing, patronizing and nurturing the neo-Nazi regime, whose President Volodymyr Zelensky declared back in September 2021 (You didn’t inform their viewers about this?), that if someone feels like a Russian person in Ukraine, let him leave for Russia,” he said in an interview with the BBC.Lavrov commented on the verdict on British mercenaries in the DPR” He (Zelensky) said this publicly. When a CNN correspondent told him that the Azov regiment was brought into some Western countries, in the USA, in Japan, in list of extremist, terrorist organizations, Zelensky shrugged his shoulders and said that they have many such battalions and regiments, they are what they are,” the minister added.
