In addition, Lavrov accused the United States of being directly involved in the explosion of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 natural gas pipelines on the bottom of the Baltic Sea in September last year, but did not provide relevant evidence for this allegation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also accused Britain of blowing up the Nord Stream gas pipeline in the past, but the British side denied it.

Lavrov also said that Western countries lied about Russia's refusal to negotiate with Ukraine and tried to incite Moldova, Georgia and the former Soviet vassal states in Central Asia to oppose Russia; Russia has plans to dwarf the international arrangements for anti-Ukrainian activities. Russian envoys are working hard to ensure that anti-Ukrainian activities in New York and elsewhere in the United States "are not the only events that can attract world attention," but he said Details were not disclosed.

Regarding the war situation, Lavrov pointed out that Russia has everything needed to deal with the conflict and has not asked the members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) to respond to Russia's so-called "special military operations" in Ukraine. Provide practical support.

CSTO is a military alliance headed by Russia, and its members are all former Soviet republics, including Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan.
