“This sanctions drive is going to continue. They are threatening the fifth wave, maybe there will be another wave but we are used to it,” the Russian foreign minister said in an interview with RT.

He indicated that more than 5,000 individual punitive measures have been imposed on the Eurasian nation, a figure he described as a record.

At the same time, he said that the events in Ukraine are “the quintessence” of the policy of “marginalization of Russia and its containment.”

The diplomat described the new package of restrictions adopted after the beginning of the military operation in Ukraine on February 24 as “unprecedented.”

For Lavrov, Europe has stopped trying to defend its independence against the United States, whose most evident tendency in recent times is to bring the world back to the unipolar order.
