Afrasianet -  interview with Al-Mayadeen Net, the Russian ambassador in Beirut believes that the referendums on joining the Russian Federation took place in accordance with the principles of international law.

It reflects the population's exercise of their legitimate rights to self-determination, and stresses that "any talk about our weakness is just a pipe dream." • Rudakov: Russia has the appropriate means of response, and the goals set will be achieved at any cost The Russian decision, to announce partial mobilization, and the referendums on the accession of Donbass, Kherson and Zaporozhye to the Russian Federation preoccupy the West, and until now, analysts and observers are busy explaining the reasons and repercussions of the Russian steps.

The Russian ambassador in Beirut, Alexander Rudakov, reveals in an exclusive interview with Al-Mayadeen Net that “the announcement of partial mobilization means calling up 300,000 reserve soldiers to military service, who have previously served in the ranks of the Russian army, who have combat experience, and who have the required military specialization.” ".

He explains that "the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces took this decision, in the face of the continuing brazen, reckless and unprecedented aggression of the NATO military machine, targeting Russia, and carried out by the formations of the Kyiv neo-Nazi and anti-people regime."

We have not declared war on anyone As the Russian ambassador asserts that his country “has not declared war on anyone, he says that the decision to partial mobilization, which came in the context of following up on the implementation of the military operation that was launched last February, aims to protect our motherland, its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and to ensure the security of our country.” The peoples and inhabitants of Russia, as well as the Ukrainian lands liberated from neo-Nazis, the disarmament and de-Nazification of Ukraine.”

• Rudakov to Al-Mayadin: The West is pushing Kyiv to transfer military operations to Russian territory After the increasing Western allegations about what is going on at the Zaporizhia nuclear plant, he adds: "Unfortunately, nothing good can be expected recently from Western countries.

They often openly announce more aggressive plans against Russia." He continues: "We cannot, in spite of everything, but hope that reason will prevail, and that the Western hotheads will find the courage to accept that the changes taking place in the system of international relations cannot go backwards, and to realize that the safety of Our lands and the unity, independence and freedom of our motherland will be guaranteed by all means available to us." Western push to take the war into the Russian interior The Russian ambassador asserts that "the events of recent months indicate the involvement of NATO countries in the events in Ukraine, and their increasing military participation in them.

Follow what Western politicians say." The military defeat of our country, followed by the wresting of its sovereignty, dividing it and looting it.” As for the regime in Kyiv, according to the Russian diplomat, it "does not enjoy independence, whether in decision-making or operational procedures, but rather receives its orders from Washington and European capitals.

The process of pumping Ukraine with heavy weapons, mercenaries and NATO military experts continues, and is being used instrument for the destruction of the Russian state. • Rudakov: We are exposed to a media war and fierce propaganda Talking about our weakness is a pipe dream.. and mobilization affects only 1% We ask the ambassador: Some diplomats read in the Russian decision a “weakness”? He replies: "We are subjected to a media war and fierce propaganda.

They are trying to discredit us in all the pro-Western media, and to blame us for all the world's problems, up to the global food and energy crises." And he adds, "Part of this strategy is to spread false information about the Russian military special operation, so that, in social networks, the process of fabricating false and fake news about the fictitious victories of Ukrainian nationalists is active."

And the Russian ambassador continues: "I assure you that when there is talk in the West about the retreat of the Russian armed forces, or about our weakness, this is a pipe dream that has no connection to reality. We have carried out a tactical regrouping of the forces in the (Ezyum) axis. As for the mobilization, it affects 1 Only % of those conscripted into the reserve forces.

Rudakov adds that the Russian forces are "successfully operating on a war contact line and a battle front, exceeding 1,000 kilometers, against not only neo-Nazi formations, but virtually the entire military machine of the West. While we prioritize the preservation of human lives, combat strikes are carried out with great accuracy." and confining it to confirmed military objectives, or infrastructure components used in the performance of tactical missions.

We continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the population in the liberated territories.” We will achieve the set goals Reminding Ambassador Rudakov that the West provides the Kyiv regime with "very large and significant support", he resolves that "Russia, as usual, has the appropriate means of response.

The goals set for the special military operation will be achieved, at any cost." • Combat strikes are executed with great accuracy To clarify, the Russian ambassador believes that “in the process of building a new world order, not a Western one, the United States, dissatisfied with the loss of its global hegemony, is forcing us to face an acute conflict.

It is trying, with all its might, to weaken us and inflict the greatest damage on Russia, which She strongly supports the principle of the sovereign equality of nations.

Threats are not our thing And in light of the assertion by the Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, that his country has the right to use nuclear weapons, if necessary, with strict adherence to the basics of state policy in the field of nuclear deterrence. We ask the ambassador: Is the Russian army threatening the greatest, in terms of the weapons used?

He answers firmly: "No. It is not our thing to use threats," and he continues: "Indeed, Russia has always presented its Western partners with unparalleled responsibility and patience with various options aimed at securing a complete, just and long-term global security system, but they have not listened to us.

They called on us to implement the Minsk settlement agreements in the Donbass, but they were openly sabotaged." He adds: We have insisted, since the beginning of the special military operation, on launching peace talks. This process had already begun, but it was thwarted at the request of the Western custodians of the Kyiv regime.

They are currently trying to claim that NATO is a defensive alliance not directed against anyone. We simply can't believe it anymore. Who provides support to the Ukrainian neo-Nazis, militarily, financially and politically? And who supplies Kyiv with weapons, including heavy weapons, which are prohibited by international conventions, and condones their use, including against civilians?

Recent referendums are a restoration of historical justice

 At a time when the referendums on joining the Russian Federation received widespread Western attack, Rudakov explains that "these referendums were held in accordance with all the principles of international law.

They reflect the exercise of the residents of these regions of their legitimate rights to self-determination and the organization of life, in accordance with their civilizational, cultural and religious traditions." • Joining through referendums to "restore historical justice" Moscow's support attributes the decision to join these regions to the Russian Federation, as "just an integrative step in carrying out the task set by the country's leadership to protect civilians from the atrocities committed by neo-Nazis there years ago.

This is the restoration of historical justice through the reunification of the original Russian lands in Novorossiya." ", as he put it. Europe's winter will be hard and harsh In light of the energy crisis in Europe, Ambassador Rudakov asserts that "it is impossible to fully compensate for the supply of cheap Russian gas to the European market, in such a short period of time.

The winter in Europe is expected to be difficult and harsh." • Rudakov: It is impossible to fully compensate for the supply of Russian gas He continues: "I would like to emphasize, once again, that Russia has never exercised any blackmail in the field of energy resources against anyone, and has never refused to fulfill its international contractual obligations.

Despite the European Union's statements that unilateral and illegal sanctions do not target the agricultural sector In Russia, it continues to negatively affect global food security. Europe has not yet taken effective and unambiguous steps to remove barriers to the export of Russian agricultural products (primarily wheat) and fertilizers to world markets."

The Russian ambassador concludes his speech to Al-Mayadeen Net by noting that "the restrictions of the European Union are discriminatory. For example, Europeans are allowed to import Russian grain and potash fertilizers to meet their own needs, but transit to third countries is prohibited. Therefore, it is difficult to stabilize the global food situation according to such standards. double".
