(Natural News) In a new statement, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov condemned the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) for engaging in a proxy war with Russia via Ukraine.
Appearing on Russian state television, Lavrov reiterated Russia’s stance that it is fully legitimate for the country to target weapons in Ukraine that were put there by its Western allies.

While it may not have been the case previously, Lavrov now says that the risk of nuclear war is “considerable” because NATO just will not back down and stop the aggression.
“If NATO essentially engages in war with Russia through a proxy and is arming that proxy, war means war,” Lavrov said. “I would not want to elevate those risks artificially. Many would like that. The danger is serious, real. And we must not underestimate it.”
