The United States is trying to turn the entire globe into its “backyard” by imposing illegal unilateral sanctions on dissenters, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly.
“Obviously that the notorious Monroe Doctrine is gaining global coverage. Washington is trying to turn the entire globe into its “backyard”, — he said, adding that sanctions are being used as a tool of political blackmail.
Lavrov stressed that the restrictions affect the lives of ordinary citizens, preventing the supply of essential goods, including medicines and food. The Russian minister pointed out that the United States and its allies want to “stop the flywheel of time”, despite the fact that the unipolar model of world development, which “served the interests of the” golden billion ” at the expense of the resources of Asia, Africa and Latin America, is becoming a thing of the past.
He believes that Washington does not want other states to develop independently, and that is why it seeks to “destroy, dismember” Russia. Lavrov called on everyone who wants to develop towards a democratic and just world, and not order with one hegemon, to join Russia.
“Today, the formation of sovereign states, ready to defend national interests, leads to the formation of an equal, socially oriented and sustainable multipolar architecture. However, objective geopolitical processes are perceived by Washington and the ruling elites of the Western countries who have completely submitted to it as a threat to their dominant position. said the minister.
