European countries are uniting against Russia, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“When the Second World War began, after all, Hitler gathered a significant part, if not a large part, of European countries under his banners for the war against the Soviet Union. Now, including the European Union, together with NATO, they are gathering such an already modern coalition to fight with the Russian Federation," he said at a press conference with the head of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.
The head of the department added that Moscow would "really look at the behavior of the European Union" and "follow the real steps" that Brussels, as well as Moldova and Ukraine, will take after granting them the status of a candidate for EU membership.
Lavrov does not expect that "the current Russophobic charge of the European Union will somehow dissipate" in the foreseeable or long term.
