Foreign Minister Serhiy Lavrov accused Western countries of "Nazism" and intentions to "solve the Russian question" because of their strong support for Ukraine.
Russian mass media, including RIA Novosti, cite his statement.
"Why do people refuse to see the Nazi ideology that is now at the heart of the Kyiv regime? All the statements coming from his supporters and puppeteers - well, I can't see them other than as an attempt to finally solve the "Russian question". "Russia must receive a strategic defeat and not to get up for a long time," he said.
"Ursula von der Leyen, a well-known figure of the European Commission, said that the result of the war should be the defeat of Russia, and such that it would not be able to restore its economy for many decades. This is not racism, not Nazism, not an attempt to solve the "Russian question" Lavrov continued.
The head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation also stated that the West is trying to turn Moldova into a "second Ukraine".
