The Kremlin reacted dismissively to the statement by the foreign ministers of the G7 countries about the inadmissibility of redistribution of borders.
Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev said that Moscow will not take into account the non-recognition of the Russian borders by the G7 countries if they include territories seized during the war against Ukraine.
A faithful ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote about this on Saturday, May 14, in his Telegram channel.
“Let’s put it mildly: our country does not care about the non-recognition of the new borders by the G7, the real will of the people living there is important,” said Medvedev, who served as president of the Russian Federation, in particular during the aggressive war of 2008 against Georgia, which also temporarily lost part of its territories .
Thus, he commented on the joint statement of the G7 foreign ministers, which, in particular, said that these countries “will never recognize the borders that Russia is trying to redraw with the help of military aggression.”
In total, Medvedev responded to all seven points of the joint statement by the heads of the G7 diplomatic departments. The content of all his comments boiled down to the fact that the Kremlin did not expect anything else from the “enemy West” waging a “hidden war” with Russia.
Recall that the G7 countries called on China to support Ukraine and not to help Russia in its war of conquest against Ukraine, not to justify its actions and not to undermine the sanctions regime against the Russian Federation.
