“When the Second World War began, Hitler gathered a significant part, if not the majority part, of European countries under his banners for the war against the Soviet Union. Now, […] the European Union, together with NATO, is forming such a modern coalition to fight […] a war against Russia,” Lavrov told reporters.
The minister also stressed that Moscow has few illusions regarding current anti-Russian sentiments in the EU or hopes that they will somehow dissipate in the foreseeable future. He added that it was the path that Europeans had chosen.
“Of course, we will be looking at the real actions of the European Union and following the steps it is taking. [We will monitor] whether candidate countries comply with these requirements or [if] they still try to maintain their independence,” Lavrov said.
The Russian foreign minister elaborated that Serbia is one example that does not want to abdicate its policy-making independence as European politicians try to dictate to Belgrade how it should act. Serbia has been a candidate for EU membership since 2012.
