Russia’s top diplomat denounced the US and the West on Saturday as self-interested defenders of a fading international power structure, but he didn’t discuss his country’s war in Ukraine in his speech to the UN General Assembly.


“The US and its subordinate Western collective are continuing to fuel conflicts which artificially divide humanity into hostile blocks and hamper the achievement of overall aims. They’re doing everything they can to prevent the formation of a genuine multipolar world order,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.


“They are trying to force the world to play according to their own self-centered rules,” he said. As for the 19-month war in Ukraine, he recapped some historical complaints going back to the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union, and alluded to the billions of dollars that the US and Western allies have spent in supporting Ukraine. But he didn’t delve into the current fighting.


The speech accused the US of, among other things, “whipping up hysteria on the Korean Peninsula”. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s seats in the assembly hall were empty for at least part of Lavrov’s speech.
