[R]ussia’s foreign minister said that the US is stoking regime change in Russia with its sanctions.
There are serious reasons to believe that the US is using its sanctions in an attempt to destabilize Russia and change its current political system, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview to France 24.
“I have serious reasons to believe that it is so. Some politicians don’t even hide the fact,” Lavrov said answering a question.
He said Russia would not only survive the sanctions but would come out even stronger afterward.
“As Vice President Biden said publicly, it was the US that ordered Europe to join sanctions against Russia,”
Lavrov said. “Unfortunately, for several years we overestimated the independence of the EU and several major European countries. This is geopolitics.” Lavrov recalled that several times in its history Russia had been in much worse situations but had always emerged stronger.
