Lavrov said that sooner or later the current “anomalous” situation between Russia and Ukraine will come to an end, but he believed that the West will prevent an early normalization of ties between the two countries.

The Russian minister also commented on the wave of sanctions against Russia, and believed that they can be further deepened. He claimed that The West seeks to “marginalize and contain” Moscowbut was convinced that the restrictions “have only made Russia stronger”.
