Russian media, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting of the Russian Legislators Committee in St. Petersburg on April 28 that some countries are “crazily” destroying the international legal basis and dialogue channels, trying to impose their own views and so-called “rules” on everyone, and Russia will not abide by these so-called “rules.”

According to the memorandum published on the website of the Kremlin, referring to Russian diplomacy, Putin said at the meeting that day, “In some countries, some of our partners, or some of our former partners, frantically destroyed the legal basis and dialogue channels, attempting to impose his views and so-called ‘rules’ on everyone”.

“Izvestia” reported that Putin said that these former partners of Russia secretly set the so-called “rules” and used these “rules” to do something. Russia will not join their ranks and does not intend to abide by their “rules.” In this regard, “Izvestia” interpreted that Putin meant that Russia would not abide by the so-called “rules” imposed by the West.

According to the report, Putin also said that Russia does not intend to “isolate itself”, but will expand pragmatic, equal, and mutually beneficial partnerships with friendly countries in Eurasia, Africa, and Latin America. He said that Russia is also ready to cooperate with foreign partners and multinational companies that value commercial reputation and want to cooperate with Russia.

Just a few days ago, the UN Security Council held an open debate on “Maintaining Effective Multilateralism by Upholding the Principles of the UN Charter” on the 24th. According to RIA Novosti, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov criticised at the debate that day that the West “has long been inconvenient to discuss issues in a generally representative institution like the United Nations” and that they “first discuss a certain issue in a small circle.” issues and then ‘grand’ roll out those agreements as a common position of the international community.” 

He also said that the West has used “force, embargoes, financial sanctions, confiscation of property, destruction of critical infrastructure, and manipulation of generally accepted norms and procedures” to impose its own “rules,” but “no one has allowed a few Western countries to speak on behalf of all mankind. Western countries should behave with dignity and respect all members of the international community”.
