Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday that “a total, hybrid war” is being waged by the West against Russia.
Speaking at a meeting of the Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund in Moscow, Lavrov said: “Today we have been declared a real hybrid war, a total war.
“This term [total war] which was used by Hitler’s Germany, is now voiced by many European politicians when they talk about what they want to do with the Russian Federation.
“The goals are not hidden, they declared publicly – to destroy, break, exterminate, strangle the Russian economy and Russia as a whole,” he noted. Anadolu Agency
