Kremlin Accuses U.S. and Allies of “Hybrid War” Against Russia in Ukraine

HeadlineMay 16, 2022

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has accused Western nations of waging what he called a hybrid war against Russia.

Sergey Lavrov: “The collective West has declared total hybrid war on us, and it is hard to predict how long this will last, but it is clear the consequences will be felt by everyone, without exception. We did everything to avoid a direct clash, but now that the challenge has been thrown down, we of course accept it. We are no strangers to sanctions: They were almost always there in one form or the other.”
