In an interview with Radio Truth of the Communist Youth League, Lavrov said, Based on the additional information we have received, Poloshenko plans to launch armed provocations on the Crimean border by the end of December. If Poloshenko provokes on the border between Ukraine and Russia, he will get a response from Russia.
This is our country, this is our borders, Lavrov stressed. We will not allow Poloshenko to violate the rights of Crimeans defended by international law. At the same time, Lavrov also promised, We will not go to war with Ukraine, I can assure you.
Our relevant departments are taking all necessary measures to avoid similar conflicts, Lavrov said.
The report also mentioned that Lavrov believed that Russia did not need to cut off relations between Russia and Ukraine. Ukraine has a broader concept as a country, and for us it has far more political power than (Boroshenko) in deviating from all international laws and norms of conduct, he said.
