Skip to comments.Putin Using Ukraine Invasion to Change 'World Order': Russian Ambassador
Posted on 04/18/2022 1:29:09 PM PDT by libh8er
Russia took military action against Ukraine in order to change a post-Soviet Union "world order" in which the U.S. and NATO have become dominant global forces, Russia's ambassador to the U.S. said.
Anatoly Antonov justified his nation's "special military operation," the term the Kremlin uses to avoid calling the invasion a war, by saying it is meant to halt the West's expanding dominance worldwide, according to an interview published Monday by Politico.
"It's a very narrow approach to say the 'Russian invasion of Ukraine,'" the ambassador told the news outlet. "We are talking about changing the world order that was created by the United States, by NATO countries after the dissolution of the Soviet Union."
Antonov's comments echo the Kremlin's latest justifications for Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which began nearly two months ago. Last week, Russia's foreign minister said the action was meant to put a stop to a "rules-based" global order imposed by the West.
"Our special military operation is meant to put an end to the unabashed expansion [of NATO] and the unabashed drive towards full domination by the U.S. and its Western subjects on the world stage," Sergey Lavrov told Russian media.
"This domination is built on gross violations of international law and under some rules, which they are now hyping so much and which they make up on a case-by-case basis," the foreign minister said.
Speaking to Politico, Antonov said, "We don't want to see any threat coming from that territory. We don't want this country to become a member of NATO. We don't want the United States or other NATO countries to use this territory against the Russian Federation."

Russia has never lacked for wild bombastic claims.
Yet still ANOTHER motive from Putin, that was never voiced before. Come on, people, Putin’s “justifications” for invading Ukraine change as often as a baby’s diapers are changed. This war is all about Ukraine’s natural resources, especially the Donbas area which has abundant fossil fuel deposits.
The NWO they are fighting against is evil of course. The “rule-based” system is a joke.
Keep telling yourself that, idiot.
Choose your poison. Putin vs Klaus Schwab. Unfortunately, I think way too may of our politicians are in on the side of Schwab, including Biden, the Deep State, Romney and others.
Not an appetizing choice, but I think I would choose Putin over Schwab. At least he hasn’t tried to kill us by ginning up a pandemic so he could cure it with a dangerous vaccine.
I wish we did have a choice between good and evil, but I don’t think we do. I just happen to think that Putin is a less evil choice than Biden and Schwab.
Putin said Ukraine made me invade & kill them [as well as Russian soldiers that were wounded].
Putin to change world order? ___ OK
Anatoly Antonov -— Report back when this jamoke can tell me something I don’t know.
More likely, to oppose a new world order that’s a lot bigger than Russia — and aligned with the Democrats in the USA, socislists in Europe, and LGBTQ everywhere.
Also loads of natural gas to be drilled for and exploited. Offshore in the Black Sea. And close to shore. Donbass = Donetsk basin that was fought over in WW2 for it coal deposits. However fake Tsar Pooty's prime goal is Russian navy access to the Black Sea. For this he must own the Donbass which is on the direct corridor from Russia to the Black Sea.
What the putin fanbois on this site seem incapable of comprehending is that just because putin is the enemy of their enemy (Biden, Soros, vax mandates, chemtrails, whatever), it doesn’t mean that putin is their friend. It just means they have two enemies, one of whom is a KGB thug.
I just encountered one of the Bidenbots in person at a nearby mall. Wearing a mask, big Ukrainian support sticker and couldn’t back her car out a parking place.
Putin is 100% a WEF man. Biden is UN NWO. Do research, they are not the same.
And, that is great news for America since the "new world order" seeks screw over this country every chance it gets.
I would also choose Putin over Schwab.
Well wait, when Obama and Biden replace him, it’s going to be with a wonderful globalist.
