Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s Straight Talk at UNGA

Lavrov for UN Secretary General!

Maybe then UN will finally start doing its job! Unfortunately, after the collapse of the USSR, UN, just like so many countries on the planet, has become a US lapdog.

No one has monopoly on truth – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at UNGA 2014:

The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA. READ MORE:

If you have trouble hearing the translation: these things do happen as simultaneous translation is a very complicated and delicate thing – believe me, I know. If you follow the link to RT you’ll find a transcript of the main points of Lavrov’s speech, as well as other UNGA speeches.

Below, I have re-posted this transcript, along with my additional explanations and thoughts.

This is the video of full Lavrov’s speech in Russian.

В своей речи глава российского МИД затронул такие важные темы, как ситуация на Ближнем Востоке, конфликт на Украине, борьба с вирусом Эбола, а также предложил принять декларацию Генассамблеи ООН о непризнании государственных переворотов как метода смены власти. Лавров также подверг резкой критике мировую политику Вашингтона последних лет, назвав ее контрпродуктивной.

Here is also additional commentary in English on RT America.

Lavrov’s full speech with simultaneous English translation. Note, this is a new version with improved sound!

Lada’s notes: since some complain about the sound, below I am also posting the abbreviated transcript from

What the summary below doesn’t mention: Lavrov also talked about the new gruesome discovery of mass graves of the Donbass civilians left behind after the Kiev junta army’s retreat. Many of those killed and dumped in mass graves bear torture marks. Lavrov has demanded proper international investigation into the war crimes and crimes against humanity being committed in Ukraine, including bombings, kidnappings and killings in Donbass and elsewhere, the May 2 burning of people alive in Odessa, MH17 flight downing, and shootings on Kiev maidan.

It is amazing how silent US and EU MSM and politicians are about the new mass grave discovery, although it’s being investigated by OSCE!

I am preparing a brand new post about war crimes and atrocities committed in Ukraine, with inside info and predictions as to where all this is going.

Abbreviated transcript from RT

The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA.

“The US-led Western alliance, while acting as an advocate of democracy, rule of law and human rights in individual countries, is acting in the international arena from the opposite position, rejecting the democratic principle of the sovereign right of states enshrined in the UN Charter and trying to decide for others what is good and what is bad,” Lavrov said at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Saturday.

The Russian foreign minister elaborated that there was an “increasingly obvious contradiction between the need for collective action by partners to produce proper responses to common challenges and some countries’ drive for dominance and revival of the archaic bloc mentality based on barrack-like discipline and flawed ‘us and them’ logic”.

Lavrov added that Russia was willing to compromise and ready to balance interests only based on mutual respect and if the dialogue is “honest, respectful and equal”.

According to the minister the “policy of ultimatums, the philosophy of superiority and domination” run counter to the needs of the 21st century, including the formation of a “polycentric and democratic world order”.

Lavrov stressed that the creation of new dividing lines is unacceptable in Europe saying that “no one has a monopoly on the truth” and no one can customize global and regional processes to “suit their needs.”

Joint efforts can only be built on the principles of mutual respect and mutual consideration of interests, as it is done in the framework of BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), G20 or the UN Security Council, said Lavrov.

The results of such efforts can be seen in the positive progress of the Iranian nuclear program and the successful completion of the destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons stockpile.

According to Lavrov, the examples “to follow” are the Minsk agreements dated September 5 and 19 which presented a roadmap on the ways out of the Ukrainian crisis and set a compromise on the date of Ukraine’s EU association agreement coming into force.

He said Russia had consistently called for “harmonizing” integration projects in Europe and Eurasia.

The agreement on political benchmarks and timelines of such a ‘convergence of integrations’ would become a real contribution to the work of the OSCE on the topic of ‘Helsinki+40’.”

“Another crucial area of this work would be to launch pragmatic discussions free of ideology on politico-military architecture in the Euro-Atlantic, so that not only NATO and CSTO members but all the countries of the region including Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia enjoy equal and indivisible security and not have to make a false choice of: ‘either with us or against us’,” Lavrov added.

The Western bloc has taken a course of “vertical structuring of humanity” according to its standards, said Lavrov describing the latter as “far from harmless”.

Proclaiming victory in the Cold War and the onset of ‘history’s end’ the US and the EU committed to expanding their geopolitical space without balancing the legitimate interests of all the peoples of Europe.”

  1. Allô Lada:

    I have just looked at your above post at Jean’s blog and left a comment there and just want to make sure you get to read it, so here it is:

    Mr. Lavrov deserves international recognition as one of the Greatest Statesman of all time!!!

    I admire him so much!! I don’t know how he can remain calm and effective despite all the West’s infantile lies & treacheries thrown at Russia and the World. He remains gracious in his negotiations and interactions, and always strives for win-win compromises.

    I wish we had more politicians of his ‘trempe’ (moral fiber).

  2. The soundtrack is unintelligible due to both languages coming thru. If an English-only soundtrack is unavailable. a transcription is needed. Sorry to have to say that. JHC


  3. Alas, yet another mass grave was discovered on the territory that was for two weeks occupied by the ignominious battalion Ajdar of the Ukrainian National Guard:


  4. Thanks. JHC


  5. I do agree totally with what Johanna wrote! Great Statesman! He should get the Nobel Peace prize for his calm and reasonable diplomacy, he is such a gentleman!


    • He should, but never will. I wish I could say NPP is given for merit…

    • You know, I did think about the Nobel Peace prize…he deserves more than phony Nobel.

      If we look at the recipients including Obama, it appears the Nobel organization has been infiltrated by the Game Planners (as I call them). Today’s Nobel prizes are rewarding the individuals who are the perpetrators of nefarious deeds (very far from its original intent).

      There is a need for a brand new prize: may be a BRICS AWARD?? Just a thought…

      AWARD instead of prize as it better defines the meaning –
      **Noun: The definition of award is something you receive for doing well.
      **Verb: Award is defined as to present something like a prize or certificate to a person who has earned it.

      Any other ideas???

  6. Just to add to my post of 6:02am, he is so right about all that he said! I totally agree with him! Thank you for posting this Lada, another eyeopener and one to really think about!


  7. Lavrov is undoubtedly the greatest Russian/Soviet statesman hands down and one of the only few of his kind in the world. He’s working tirelessly to put out fires caused by US/Nato in the Ukraine and in the middle east. Taking advantage of John Kerry’s offhanded remarks in August of last year regarding destroying Syria’s chemical weapons was a stroke of genius by Lavrov in calling off the US Dogs of War. Forget getting the Nobel peace prize. That’s a useless prize considering Obama got it and in the past notorious people like Kissinger got it. It’s enough to get more and more of the common person to realize what a great diplomat and statesman Lavrov is and to appreciate the country that would elevate such a person into its highest external affairs position. It says a lot about what kind of nation Russia is.
