Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov spoke about Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine, sanctions and the confrontation with the West in an interview to RT and Sputnik on Wednesday.
Speaking with RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan, the minister explained why, despite a promising start, peace talks with Ukraine effectively broke down in spring.
He shared his views about the risks of a nuclear war with the West and how the Western-supplied heavy weapons affect the fighting on the ground, as well as the decision-making in Moscow.
Lavrov also discussed the effects of the sanctions on the European economy and the delivery of Russian gas to EU member states.
