Lavrov speech at UN - debates 'equality of sovereign states'

OWoN: So, as Russia debates Global equality, the US recoils, as unmerited Leadership slips away. Lavrov is now becoming the key Global orator, as the WH Wookie spends all his time on the ropes. Remember Ali with Rope a Dope?

Lavrov maybe the best orator on the equality of nations in our time and should be a potential successor to Moon at the UN, but of course that is a dream. Equality, freedom and integrity will not get American backing at the UN. So why do we need the UN any longer?

Lavrov: Western bloc headed by Washington rejects UN principle that all states are equal

The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA.

"The US-led Western alliance, while acting as an advocate of democracy, rule of law and human rights in individual countries, is acting in the international arena from the opposite position, rejecting the democratic principle of the sovereign right of states enshrined in the UN Charter and trying to decide for others what is good and what is bad," Lavrov said at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Saturday.

The Russian foreign minister elaborated that there was an “increasingly obvious contradiction between the need for collective action by partners to produce proper responses to common challenges and some countries' drive for dominance and revival of the archaic bloc mentality based on barrack-like discipline and flawed 'us and them' logic".

Lavrov added that Russia was willing to compromise and ready to balance interests only based on mutual respect and if the dialogue is “honest, respectful and equal”.

According to the minister the “policy of ultimatums, the philosophy of superiority and domination” run counter to the needs of the 21st century, including the formation of a “polycentric and democratic world order”.

Lavrov stressed that the creation of new dividing lines is unacceptable in Europe saying that “no one has a monopoly on the truth” and no one can customize global and regional processes to “suit their needs."

Joint efforts can only be built on the principles of mutual respect and mutual consideration of interests, as it is done in the framework of BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), G20 or the UN Security Council, said Lavrov.




The results of such efforts can be seen in the positive progress of the Iranian nuclear program and the successful completion of the destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons stockpile.

According to Lavrov, the examples “to follow” are the Minsk agreements dated September 5 and 19 which presented a roadmap on the ways out of the Ukrainian crisis and set a compromise on the date of Ukraine’s EU association agreement coming into force.

He said Russia had consistently called for “harmonizing” integration projects in Europe and Eurasia.

"The agreement on political benchmarks and timelines of such a 'convergence of integrations' would become a real contribution to the work of the OSCE on the topic of 'Helsinki+40'.”

“Another crucial area of this work would be to launch pragmatic discussions free of ideology on politico-military architecture in the Euro-Atlantic, so that not only NATO and CSTO members but all the countries of the region including Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia enjoy equal and indivisible security and not have to make a false choice of: 'either with us or against us'," Lavrov added.

The Western bloc has taken a course of "vertical structuring of humanity” according to its standards, said Lavrov describing the latter as “far from harmless”.

“Proclaiming victory in the Cold War and the onset of ‘history’s end’ the US and the EU committed to expanding their geopolitical space without balancing the legitimate interests of all the peoples of Europe.”

  1. War Crimes Committed by Ukraine Military in Donbass: From Illegal Arms Trafficking to Human Organs Trade
    http://www.globalresearch.ca/war-crimes-committed-by-ukraines-military-in-donbass-from-illegal-arms-trafficking-to-human-organs-trade/5404389

    Numerous reports on systematic destruction of populated areas in the Donbass and Luhansk regions by Ukrainian military have been becoming public domain. The evidence has been plentiful: photos, videos, international observers and journalists’ reports.

    Neither the United States nor Europe have paid attention to this information as they considered it to be part of the «Kremlin’s propaganda». Western media outlets have painted the use of internationally banned arms and warfare tactics as legal means of waging war against terror.

    Now the OSCE has to recognize the fact that the crimes have been committed by Ukrainian military and National Guard battalions. For instance in the use of non-conventional weapons, the execution of civilians and the torture of prisoners. According to the report by Amnesty International, the servicemen of the Aydar battalion practiced kidnapping and torture of civilians. Some time ago international observers discovered mass graves of tortured people.

    Those who live in Donbass have many times reported «mysterious graves» findings. Two movable crematoriums have been bought in Germany to get rid of the bodies. The burnt soldiers were reported to be missing in action. Many corpses have been burnt without registration and leaving any trace whatsoever.

    On September 23, 332 Ukrainian military were put into a grave near Dnepropetrovsk without identifying the names of the deceased. Only 22 names were known. On September 22, in Zaporozhye 55 unrecognized corpses of Ukrainian soldiers were buried. In Dnepropetrovsk 11 more unrecognized servicemen, who had lost their lives in Ilovaisk, were put into grave.

    The atrocities committed by Neo-Nazi (Right Sector) militants need to be described more in detail. (more at link, see pictures)
