Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed that he had said they were ready for a break in relations between the European Union and Russia.
Lavrov told Russian media that Josep Borell, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Relations and Security Policy, said that in 2019, Russia, the former enemy of the European Union, again announced its name and again posed a threat. Lavrov said in a statement: “We have requested clarification of the words of the Spanish official through the protocol service. We got Borell's response that he was misunderstood.”
"Thus, their mentality was revealed. They look at us as strangers. Asked by Russian journalists whether we are ready for a break in relations with the European Union, I answered positively, because there is no such thing as a relationship. As former United States President Obama said, relations have been shattered. Although he said it for the Russian economy.”
