Russian Overseas Minister, Sergey Lavrov, accused the West of pressuring growing international locations to align in favour of Ukraine.

Lavrov’s remarks have been made in Luanda on Wednesday at one other stage of his African tour brazenly searching for worldwide help.

The battle in Ukraine was the central theme of talks with the Angolan authorities, who requested Lavrov for an evaluation of the state of affairs on the bottom.

The pinnacle of Russian diplomacy pointed the finger at Western allies, accusing them of “remodeling Ukraine into the stage of an hybrid battle” towards Russia.

On the United Nations, Angola initially abstained from condemning the Russian invasion. 

Solely in October did it vote in favour of the decision censuring the annexation of Ukrainian territories. 

Earlier this month, the Angolan president appealed to Moscow to declare “a definitive and unconditional ceasefire”.

Russia and Angola are making ready for the second bilateral summit within the historical past of the 2 international locations, scheduled for April in Luanda.
