Lavrov going Cartman mode.
Moscow is not asking for the lifting of sanctions, but urges Western states to fix the problems they have created on the global food market, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Sunday.
“We are not asking for the removal of sanctions – those are problems that deserve to be dealt with separately. We will simply develop our economy now by counting on reliable partners and not on those who have once again proved their total incapacity…
As far as food is concerned, our Western colleagues… should remove the obstacles they themselves have created,” the diplomat said after talks with his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, in Egypt.
Lavrov recently accused the West of intentionally “keeping silent” about the impact of Ukraine-related sanctions on Russia’s exports.
At a news conference last month, he said: “There is a problem with the export of Russian grain. Although the West loudly reminds everyone that grain is not subject to sanctions, for some reason they are bashfully silent about the fact that ships carrying Russian grain are subject to sanctions. They are not accepted in European ports, they are not insured, and, overall, all logistics and financial matters, which are associated with the supply of grain to the world markets, are under sanctions of our Western colleagues.”
Lavrov doesn’t really have the Cartman vibe, actually.
But you know, Cartman was the good guy on South Park, and the only truly serious person.
The amazing thing about Russia is that it’s not just their boomers – they actually have younger guys who act like adults. Medvedev is only like 50.
Lavrov proved to be a more than competent professional, owner of one maximum competence in verbalization, he’s kind without losing the firmness necessary for a negotiation. #Lavrov is badass!

Russians always honour contracts, if necessary, to the letter of the contract; but that doesn’t mean that the contracts will be renewed, or, if renewed, that they’d be renewed on the same terms.

While i want that more than anything, the total collapse of Europe is not in Russia’s best interest and its trying to prevent that. Russia will win. The empire will collapse. That’s all that matters.
