The European Union, together with NATO, is assembling a "coalition" to fight, and in fact, allegedly "for the war against Russia".
This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, according to the Russian Interfax news agency.
He made a corresponding statement commenting on the granting of EU candidate status to Ukraine and Moldova.
"Of course, we will really look at the behavior of the European Union and follow those real steps that it makes...We have little illusion that the current Russophobic charge of the EU will somehow dissipate or change in the long term. But this is the path the Europeans have chosen," Lavrov said.
He also compared the EU and NATO to Hitler's Germany.
"When World War II began, Hitler gathered a large part, if not most, of the European countries under his banners for the war against the USSR. Now the EU, together with NATO, is assembling a modern coalition to fight, and by and large, to wage war against Russia," Lavrov said.
