Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the European Union and NATO are putting together a coalition to fight, and by and large, to wage war against Russia, RIA Novosti reported.
"Of course, we will really look at the behavior of the European Union and monitor the real steps it takes and how the candidate countries comply with these demands or still try to show their independence. We have few illusions that the current Russophobic charge of the European Union will somehow dissipate or change in the foreseeable future, or, frankly, in the long term. But this is the path the Europeans have chosen," Lavrov said at a press conference with Azerbaijan's foreign minister.
"This is a path that, unfortunately, resembles... You know, when World War II began, because Hitler gathered a significant part, if not most, of the European countries under his banners for the war against the Soviet Union. Now also the European Union, together with NATO, is putting together such a modern coalition to fight, and to wage war against Russia. We will look at all this very carefully," noted Russian FM.
