Russia’s ultimate goal is to overthrow Ukraine’s president, Lavrov says – National

Russia appears to have turned around after the country’s top diplomat said Moscow’s overriding goal was to overthrow the government of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy while Russian artillery fire and airstrikes continue to hit cities across Ukraine.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s remark comes amid Ukraine’s efforts to resume grain exports from its Black Sea ports, which would help ease global food shortages, under a new deal shattered over the weekend by a Russian strike in Odessa was tested.

Speaking to envoys at an Arab League summit in Cairo late Sunday, Lavrov said Moscow was determined to help Ukrainians “unburden themselves of the burden of this totally unacceptable regime.”

“The Russian and Ukrainian people would continue to live together, we will certainly help the Ukrainian people to get rid of the regime, which is absolutely anti-people and anti-historical,” he said.

Lavrov’s remarks contrasted sharply with the Kremlin’s line early in the war, when Russian officials repeatedly stressed that they were not trying to overthrow Zelenskyy’s government.

Lavrov argued that Russia was ready to negotiate an agreement to end hostilities in March, when Kyiv changed course and declared its intention to route Russia on the battlefield, adding that the West had encouraged Ukraine keep fighting.

“The West insists that Ukraine must not start negotiations until Russia is defeated on the battlefield,” Lavrov said.

It was not yet clear when grain deliveries would resume after Russia and Ukraine signed identical deals with the United Nations and Turkey in Istanbul on Friday. The deals aim to pave the way for the shipment of millions of tons of much-needed Ukrainian grain, as well as for the export of Russian grain and fertilizers.

The Kremlin insisted on Monday that the attack on the port of Odessa over the weekend was aimed at military installations and would not affect grain shipping.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters the strike was “exclusively related to military infrastructure.”

“This has nothing to do with the infrastructure associated with fulfilling the agreements and exporting grain. So this cannot and should not affect the start of the shipping process in any way,” said Peskov.

“Russia is a responsible gas supplier and no matter what anyone says, the European Commission, in European capitals, in the US, Russia has been and is a country that largely guarantees Europe’s energy security,” Peskov said.
