Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has made it clear that the Russian Federation does not intend to recognize the terrorist "republics" of Donbass. He said this in the course of communication with Russian journalists.
"We will not fight with Ukraine, I promise you. Sometimes the recognition of the "DNR/LNR" independence and declaration of war to Ukraine is a demonstration of nervous breakdown and weakness", - he said.
At the same time, the head of the foreign ministry stressed that Russia is interfering with the affairs of Ukraine and sees its mission to bring the residents of a "normal, responsible, neutral country" to a comfortable state.
It is revealing that Komsomolskaya Pravda, with journalists of which S.Lavrov communicated, had dropped the words of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation that the recognition of the "DNR/LNR" is a sign of weakness and hysteria in its news feed.
