Lavrov at UN: Russian foreign minister outlines Western minority's place in a multilateral world

The Ukraine conflict is about the future of global order, the senior diplomat told the UN Security Council
Lavrov at UN: Russian foreign minister outlines Western minority's place in a multilateral world

Amid a storm of protest from the US and its allies, and a ban on Russian journalists from travelling to New York, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov chaired Monday’s session of the UN Security Council.

The meeting was dedicated to “effective multilateralism,” as Moscow continues to emphasise to emphasise its intentions to help change the world order. In his opening remarks, LAVROV outlined the nature of the current conflict, which he said was really between the UN Charter and the “rules-based order” of the collective West.

Lavrov also noted that the US had effectively denied visas to his accredited media pool, a move to which Moscow has vowed to respond to in such a way as “to make Americans remember that things should not be done in such a fashion.”
