Trust between Russia and Pindostan nearly lost, but not zero: Lavrov to BBC, Apr 16 2018

Russia is losing the last remnants of trust with its Pindostani partners after unsubstantiated claims of a Syrian CW attack and the Skripal poisoning case, Russian FM Sergey Lavrov told the BBC, adding that some trust still remains. BBC Hardtalk host (((Stephen Sackur))) started his interview with Lavrov by stating:

You say there’s no trust, you mean, zero trust, now between Russia and Pindostan…

The Foreign Minister corrected the journalist, saying:

I said we’re losing the last remnants of trust, which is not yet zero.

Lavrov said that the current state of relations between Russia and the West is “worse” than during the Cold War. Back then, “there were channels of communication and there was no obsession with Russophobia,” but now the number of such channels has significantly decreased, he explained. Still, he said, the “deconflicting channel was engaged all the time” between the Russian and the Pindosi militaries. Lavrov added:

We don’t accept Western claims that the missiles strikes on Syria only targeted chemical facilities and weren’t aimed at promoting regime change in the country. You have hard talk. We want hard facts.

When asked if there was a real threat of a direct military conflict between Russian and Pindo forces over the missile strikes on Syria by Pindostan and its vassals, the FM replied:

Well, I don’t think that was very close. I believe it was a situation created by very reckless behavior of our Western colleagues, who accused the Syrian government and us as allies of the Syrian government of applying CW against civilians without waiting for the OPCW to inspect the place. There is no proof that on Apr 7 CW were used in Douma. All the so-called evidence of Syrian government’s guilt that is being provided by the Western leaders is based on the media reports and on social networks. When some time ago the three western countries who are leading this crazy campaign said: “If Assad uses CW then we will use force,” I believe that was a signal to the bad guys, including the White Helmets, to stage a provocation. Now after they stuck on Apr 14, they say again if you do this again we will use force again. This is another invitation to the opposition, to the extremists, to resume fighting, which they did already. They tried to attack Damascus immediately after the strike.

He added that it was “ridiculous” when Theresa May sanctioned Russia after saying that it “highly likely” behind the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury. Lavrov said:

‘Highly likely’ is a new invention of the British diplomacy to describe why they punish people: Because these people are ‘highly likely’ to be guilty. Like in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll, when he described a trial, and the King said: “Let’s ask the jury,” and the Queen shouted: No jury! Sentence first! Verdict afterwards!” That’s the logic of ‘highly likely.’
