Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes that the European Union (EU) requires to be connected to the decisions taken against Moscow. According to him, one can say that the EU has turned into an anti-Russian union.

Thus, Lavrov commented on the decision to grant Moldova and Ukraine the status of a candidate country for EU membership, writes RIA Novosti on Friday, June 24th. “Over the past few years, the European Union has greatly revolutionized, if not mimicked in the direction of acquiring such an aggressive ideological background, primarily a Russophobic background,” the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

He drew attention to the fact that candidates for EU membership are told of the need to support all the foreign policy approaches of the community, without exception, “including all the measures that the EU is taking with respect to the Russian Federation.”

With such demands, European leaders address Serbia, which is a candidate for joining the European Union. However, the republic, as Lavrov noted, “does not want to lose, like everyone else, its independence and join decisions that directly contradict its fundamental interests.” In particular, we are talking about relations with Russia.

Lavrov also stated that the European Union gathers a coalition to confront the Russian Federation. He added that Moscow has no illusions about “the current Russophobic charge of the European Union,” which is unlikely to change in the foreseeable or long term.
