Lavrov threatens Ukraine with nuclear weapons in case of war over Crimea


Crimea, Featured

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov promised that Russia will use all forces and means against Ukraine if the latter decides to go to war for Crimea. RIA NOVOSTI reports that Lavrov made this statement on Wednesday after a meeting with his Italian counterpart, Federica Mogherini.

“I would not advise anyone to do that (attack Crimea – Ed.). We have a doctrine of national security; it very clearly prescribes actions that our country must take in such cases.” said Lavrov.

In 2009, the National Security Concept was revised in Putin’s Russia.

According to this concept, Russia has the right to “use all forces and means at its disposal, including nuclear weapons, to repel any armed aggression.”

In March 2014, Russia illegally occupied Ukrainian Crimea, and “included” it in the Russian Federation.

All international organizations, including the UN General Assembly, PACE, OSCE, the U.S., the EU and Ukraine itself have deemed the occupation illegal and recognize Crimea as Ukrainian territory.

    Lavarov talks a big act. in the end Putler backed off in the face of even mild sanctions and the possibility of a prolonged and expensive occupation.
    After shelling out 8B for a few years the Russians will be begging UA to take Crimea back.

      It will probably end up being Putin himself that begs them to take it back in one final pathetic attempt to hold on to his power.

    One Dictator gives Crimea away, another Dictator takes it back. The Russian case for Crimea is empty. The legal documents were signed in 1996 by both Russia and Ukraine, affirming that Crimea belonged to Ukraine after decades of heated debate over the legality of the transfer by Khrushchev in 1954.

      The decision to unite crimea with soviet republic Ukraine was a very wise one back then. As it is a souvereign territory the occupation of crimea is ofc illegal and against all international law. If Putin gets away with that, I as a German could argue to take back parts of Poland, as they indeed are genuine former parts of Germany. Such abstruse pushback in the 21st century – nobody could imagine..

      1. Avatar Arctic_Slicer says:

        Or better yet take back Kaliningrad since Russia obviously supports the “rejoining” of such territories.

    Mr Lavarov….Crimea is not Russias….it is a soverenign state in Ukraine which you illegally invaded and annexed. You have no legal right to keep it. You should give it back to Ukraine. Ukraine did not start a war with Russia. Russia started the war and now you’re threatening Ukraine that they shouldn’t try to take it back. You’d use Nuclear weopons if need be? It shows how much Russia really cares ab out Russians in Crimea.

    1. Well, in fairness Crimea was never a “sovereign state” in Ukraine (that would imply it was an independent country), it was a province with greater autonomy than other Ukrainian provinces (but less than say, a US state or Canadian province)

      Crimea was given to Ukraine by a drunk Krutchev on a late night. But Crimeans are entitled to the right of self determination and therefore should be allowed a referendum. You don’t recognize the results of the previous referendum ? Then organize a new one, except that you already know that people will vote to be part of Russia. The land of Crimea before being owned by any state is owned by its people.

          About the land of Crimea belonging to Crimeans, well this is the same pattern as the one UN used in Kosovo and South Soudan and US voted for, so we actually think the same !!! Except that when it’s in favour of Russia, amazingly, it’s wrong.

            Les habitants de la Crimée ne voteraient jamais pour faire partie de la Russie. Il n’y avait aucune raison.

Then pursuing war crimes in pursuit of criminals who’s only crime was voting.

          First, in the last 400 years we have won more wars than US did, but I guess you’re another ill-educated person who learns history through hollywood remakes, thank god all American are not like you.

          Then, having military bases in 60 foreign countries + secret prisons and drones attack on sovereign nations(not so much in the end), call it however you want I call it imperialism.

          For our overseas territories, they all went through a referendum and have chosen to remain French. Again, read the UN resolutions about it, oh sorry there’s no movie for that. United States is no better, Puerto Rico was colonised in 1898 and is still a colony, there is also Guam, Virgin Islands, American Samoa…

          Yes we were imperialist, yes we have tortured and colonised and we are now following US foreign policies like sheeps thanks to our coward leaders and the imperialist NATO.

          1. Avatar Milton Devonair says:

            Winning more wars in the last 400 years is something to be proud of? lol. You europeans are such tribal savages, you’re constantly invading and killing each other over what some king or queen did or said or lived or at 300 years prior.

            That’s why Americans are trusted with firearms and europeans aren’t. Seriously. You people are so tribal, you’d probably start 18 different wars in the first 20 minutes you were given firearms.
            Heck, look at your soccer. Perfect example of do nothing on stage accompanied by tribal violence by everyone.

          2. Avatar Le Peuple c'est Nous says:

            At least I recon that we had colonies, you don’t even acknowledge. For Afghanistan, we should have never go, neither in Iraq, as I told you, our leaders are cowards and remain in NATO therefore have to follow the US. And as your islands, ours + the Guyane Francaise have decided to remain French, just read, it’s all available online.

            Why are you always saying French surrender ? I mean all neo-conservatives warmongers like you. That’s what I was answering by saying we won more wars, which is not a pride, it’s history. But anyway, maybe we are tribal savages but there were more people killed by firearms in the US since the beginning of the war in eastern Ukraine than in Eastern Ukraine, and certainly way more than in France, so I’d rather keep guns the way it is in France, meaning for hunters mostly and government forces.

            Pepe, you’re being the typical American liberal/progressive or I guess typical european leftist. I don’t know what a ‘neoconservative’ is, but you’ve memorized the talking points and pit them out without thought, the stop-thought labels, just as programmed. Your trainers did well.

            Your ignorance is spitting out that “more people killed by firearms in…” piece of propaganda. You really don’t know anything about the USA, but that’s why you’re a european, all ignorance, yet full of arrogance. So as yet another service Americans have to do for europeans, I’ll educate you.

            Most of the woundings/killings in the USA by firearms is by criminal gang members shooting other criminal gang members. I have a few friends that are cops in chicago. Last weekend there were 16 people killed by gunfire in Chicago–all of them related to criminals gangs shooting each other.
            The biggest problem with this is the gang vermin are such lousy shot, when shooting at each other they usually miss so they sometimes hit innocent, law abiding citizens.

            It’s against the law for them to have guns because they are felons, but they steal the guns so they have them. A lot are illegals immigrants, yet another crime.

            USA has a crime problem, not a firearms problem. You really might want to consider informing yourself better on issues rather than just bleating out BS because that makes you just another “useful idiot”. And as we can see, the internet boards are full of them and the russian paid putin-gandists to feed people like you.

            What exact countries are we being “imperial” with pepe? If it’s iraq, yeah, that was a UN mandate with a UN coalition and yes, the french were there, though they really can’t do much because they really don’t have much.
            And IIRC you frenchies are also in afghanistan too. And you frenchies seem to always be going to africa to kill black people. What’s up with that?

            The closest thing we have to a colony is puerto rico and we got that when the spanish lost their war for their colonies here and left back to europe. They can say a commonwealth of the usa or leave, but they know that if it werne’t for the usa, they’d be haiti or cuba. The other islands chose to stay with the usa and even when the phillipines said “you can go now” we did. Where we have military bases (real ones) the people want us to stay as they like our protection and our dollars.

      The problem with your country is the same as every other country that the soviet russian vermin invaded and colonized–they set up a dysfunctional, criminal and corrupt system, then robbed it blind. It’s what russia does.
      That’s why a should be wealthy country like Ukraine wound up where it did.
      Look at Belarus. Why aren’t they a rich country?
      Why did Germany succeed?
      Greece and Spain are economically dysfunctional (don’t know about portugal). They are welfare states, like a lot of western europe is, but they don’t produce anything to pay for those goods.

            I don’t agree with your premise. Just because someone is jewish doesn’t mean they aren’t or are incapable of being a nationalist. Same thing as being uber wealthy–that doesn’t automatically make a person not a nationalist or a bad person.

            Judiasm is a religion, not a nationality. Most of the non-kgb/fsb people in power in russia are also jewish. There are many non-jewish people that have sold out their nations for money.

            If you are thinking along the lines of “war is profitable” you’re mistaken. In the western hemisphere that ended with the banana republics war and that type of weaponry. There’s too many, too good, too destructive weapons in the world now to have that line of thinking. The only way I can think that would work is for someone to play the futures game of oil sliding, then trying to cause some oil crisis, but that game isn’t available anymore as that whole region is blowing up anyway.

            “Just because someone is jewish doesn’t mean they aren’t or are incapable of being a nationalist.” – Yeah, I agree and I never said otherwise. But I am not talking about those Jewish individuals who are loyal to their respective countries, I am talking about those who are not. What about the vast majority of Jewish political operatives in America that ARE loyal to Israel and loyal to the anti-American agenda to impose “political correctness”, “multiculturalism” and gay “marriage” on white gentile nations for the purpose of destroying their ethnic and moral homogeneity? The fact that SOME Jews are loyal – which I happy admit – does nothing to address my concerns. I never said or implied that ALL Jews do anything; my only concern is with those who provably let their Jewishness usurp their national loyalty. What about them? They are a threat to every nation in which they operate. Unfortunately, the Jewish state has made Jewishness a de facto nationality by automatically giving all Jews citizenship. If there is going to be such a thing as a “Jewish state” then all Jews should have to return there and reapply for citizenship elsewhere because the mere possibility of betrayal is enough to justify action.

            Dunno as I can’t do anything about them and neither can you.

            The only remedy would be to have some sort of test for them, but what will it be, who will give it and how will it be enforced/punished?
            It can’t as there isn’t any.
            The only way some such thing can be done is if there’s a dictator that calls the shots. There is one running russia….and most of his oligarch cronies are jewish, so then it just can’t be any dictator, but the right one for your desired needs….

            And if such a ‘patriotism’ test were to be given most of the liberal/progressives would also fail. I’d LOVE to get rid of them as they are the most dangerous threat to the USA as a nation there is, but can’t. Heck, right now they have their own dictator-lite as president.

            Don’t know what the solution is, but I know blaming jews is pretty far from it. Maybe just becoming involved locally in the politicas of your area. The liberal/progressives are keenly aware of the power of this, this “community organizing” BS.

            These people all have two things in common (1) they are all the leading lights of the so-called “gay rights” movement which seeks to debase, degrade, infantilize and homosexualize our nation and (2) they are ALL Jews. Every “gay rights” group is in fact created, funded, staffed and run by Jews. What conclusion are Americans supposed to draw from this fact? Does it mean I “hate Jews” because I resent the fact that it is Jews who are poisoning my country with this filth? (Notice, I didn’t say ALL Jews.) If was a group of Buddhists or Muslims or Arabs or Ethnic Chinese I would be saying the same things and opposing them for the same reason. Not because the are Jewish (or Chinese or Muslims or whatever) but because what they DO. “Anti-semitism” (sic) is a “disease” and it is spread by the behavior of Jews. Unfortunately, not Jews spread this disease, so it is unfortunate they they often get blamed for the behavior of their people. But the fact is, the predatory and parasitic behavior of certain Jewish people is rooted in their “holy” book, the Babylonian Talmud, which is a disgusting toilet of Jewish racial supremacism and it is the faunt of all hatred between Jews and gentiles. “All gentiles are suspect with regard to bestiality.” – Jewish “holy” book Babylonian Talmud: Mishnah, Avodah Zarah 2:1.

            I don’t think it’s a jewish thing to feminize, rather a liberal/progressive thing. Most ‘artists’ types are more prone to be liberal/progressive and more liberal/progressives are more prone to either be gay or be accepting of it and/or promoting it.

            I think the jews are more likely to be in positions like that not because they’re jewish, but as stated, because they’re liberal/progressive. And the jewish culture values money and education more, so they are naturally more successful in life than cultures that don’t, such as american blacks. Quick, name all the professional athletes that re jewish? Now go look at the business, law and medical schools and see how many jews are there vs how many blacks are there.

            I really don’t see gay jews getting together, reading their talmud or not, organizing to make a country more gay, for whatever the reason.

            Nope, that disease is a liberal/progressive one.

    It seems everyone commenting here is not aware that Russia had a military base in Crimea and contract with the government of Ukraine to be there until 2042. How can that possibly be viewed as an invasion? America has a military base in Germany. Is that an invasion, too? How about the other 1,000 US bases in 60 other countries?

    The US, Europe and the UN approved Kosovo’s succession from Yugoslavia under the principle of self-determination and in Canada, Quebec held 2 referendums to split from Canada and neither America nor the UN objected. Professor of International Law Francis Boyle from the University of Illinois had declared Crimea’s right to secede is valid and legal. Many other scholars have said the same but mass media will not allow you to read their opinions.

    The propaganda against Russia in the west and in Europe is extreme at present. America has a long record of lying about just about everything these days as most of you know. Instead of just repeating everything you hear in the western mass media, do a little independent homework. For those who believe in democracy, maybe listening to 96% of the voters is not such a bad thing to do.

      Comrade, russia had their port in crimea and they were paying rent to Ukraine to use it. In exchange, Ukraine got a price break on it’s gas price from russia. Putin invaded Crimea for access to their gas resources and also as a means to protect his projected ‘south stream gas line’ under the black sea to bulgaria, then to southern europe.

          Under the agreement, the max number of US personnel is limited to 2,500, lol. Quick, run for the hills!!!!!!!

          We also have a joint training agreement with Romania and when the russian pigs invaded yet another country–Crimea–the Romanians asked for US troops to be stationed in their country.

      Either you blind to the fact that there was no due process in this process of referendum leading to seceding to Russia or you are selective in choosing the truth you want to believe . But in which ever case it was there were many disenfranchised Voters and lots of fraud . possible only 10% of Crimeans actually voted for this Joke

      1. Avatar James Leonard says:

        Actually 82.7 % of eligible voters took part in the referendum.

        A group of international observers from Israel, Spain, Italy, USA, UK, Latvia, Moldova and Serbia visited the largest cities of Crimea – Simferopol, Yalta, Evpatoria, Alushta, Saki, as well as many villages in the countryside.

        ​All observers unanimously noted that the referendum was held in full compliance with international standards.

        “According to the Vice-President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, Nenad Popovic, the “referendum was organized in
        a perfect manner,” as evidenced by his meetings with heads of various
        electoral commissions as well as visits to several polling stations. He
        stressed that “all citizens of Crimea were given equal rights to
        participate in the referendum; the will of voters was free and
        democratic; and the voting procedure was completely transparent.” Popovic thanked Crimean authorities for allowing “free and unrestricted access to polling stations for international observers.”

        Contrast this vote with the vote for President of Ukraine where areas that objected were not given the opportunity to vote.

        1. Avatar Mat says:

          a) it was 30%, as shown by a Russian watchdog, not 87%, which is an impossible number given that most were too afraid to leave their houses and the 20% of the population which is Tatar largely boycotted it. This would imply a North Korean-esque 107% turnout for everyone else.

          b) The observers were members of the European far-right, fringe academics, and neo-Nazis. I wouldn’t give much credence to your “international observers” – who also in interviews said there were no armed men in the streets, while armed men were directly outside. What a joke you people are.

          1. Avatar James Leonard says:

            European far right and neo-Natzis are anti-Russian and support the junta and Poroshenko. Why would they want to support Russia as you seem to be saying? For supporting the junta, Svoboda (the neo-Natzi extremist party in Ukraine) was given much power in the new government.

            As for people being too afraid to vote in Crimea, maybe you should look at all the video of huge lines of people lined up to vote. The BBC’s Ben Brown is quoted as saying, “There is a sea of Russian flags.” The BBC also says around 90% voted to join Russia. Have a look.

            If you don’t believe the BBC, how about ABC news in America? There’s also video of huge crowds waving Russia flags.

            How about adding some links to the source of your information.

            You conveniently forgot the internet information from an official Russian government website which posted that only 30% of the population voted, with only 50% in favour of joining RuSSia. This was quickly withdrawn. And Mat is indeed correct in his assertion that these observers were seedy extremist characters. As for the “sea of Russian flags”, of course. It was dangerous to display Ukrainian flags, as shown by the thuggish behaviour earlier when peaceful supporters of Ukraine were beaten up repeatedly. Once again, how could “90%” have voted for joining Russia when 20% of the population (Tartars) boycotted the vote? Yes, this is only possible in North Korea and the old Soviet Union. Never could figure out those 99.99% support figures (or 107% !).

   This link discusses those bogus results.

But the treaty with Ukraine is that Russian soldiers stationed in those bases are not allowed to mobilize off the base. Everybody knows they were mobilized and Putin also publicly confirmed this. That’s an invasion. Your American bases argument is phony.

      Quebec people publicly debated succession for years before their referendums. All kinds of campaigns and legal activities preceded them. Crimeans had only two weeks to think about it, no public debates, massive propaganda and censorship. It’s not possible that 96% of the Crimean voting age people voted to join Russia. Most Tatars boycotted, Ukrainian military members didn’t vote. The actual vote was probably closer to 40%, as indicated by the report on Russia’s official Presidential Council on Civil Society and Human Rights web site.

      Aksyonov’s Russian Unity party got only 4% of the vote in the more civilized elections in 2010 and 2012. How is it possible to increase that to 96%, without armed overthrow of the Crimean Rada, massive propaganda about mythical Nazis in Kiev, stupid “gifting” theory of Krushchev in 1954, and violating several treaties in which Russia recognized Crimea as part of Ukraine and pledged not to intimidate Ukraine with economic or military means?

  16. Avatar Gene says:

    Talking past history of Crimea and Russia, and comparing this to Germany past, or former alliances and confederations and unions, misses the facts from the legality of how the people of Crimea themselves chose to act. Any understanding commences with the illegal and violent overthrow of their formerly elected President, then continues with the total destruction of the Ukrainian Constitution as well. Once that Constitution was overthrown, along with the constitutionally elected President, there is no longer a legal framework for the people of Ukraine to have a nation. The nation itself, like the USA, is meaningless and void of legality without that sacred Constitution. Look the word up in any dictionary, it is the “foundation” upon which any legally build nation stands, and the “basis” upon which the people agree to be united and ruled over.

    Therefore, what basis without it do the persons who then claimed to have power in Kiev base there assertion of power – it is arbitrary and void of legality. If the American Constitution is overthrown violently by a fire breathing and thuggish mob, then they decide along with foreign powers – say from Kiev and Paris, and even Brussels – who our rulers should be. And, if they together decide that those who organized this violent mob should now rule over our nation and me and you, what says we need to follow. And if we together decide, each in our states, how we will proceed, and who will rule over us, we have that autonomous right. Those who arbitrarily by force have destroyed our prior rights have no authority to decide now our future. And most especially they have no right to say we must abide by former agreements – those which they arbitrarily mandate – or they will otherwise violently force them upon us. WE have the inalienable right of self determination. Certainly, the people of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea also have that right, and they have asserted it.

            Comrade, the only reason why the USA is using russian rockets instead of their own is because the USA decided to throw in with other countries for space work after your soviet russia’s gulag system collapsed and we thought you russians could become humans. Our bad, lesson learned from chechnya, ossetia/georgia, crimea, and ukraine. Russia started out so good, but then the only thing still standing was their kgb, so the kgb just took over the reins of russia and own it to this very day.

            As far as the USA’s space program, I don’t seem much value in it for what we do on earth. With mir, the work was, “eat, sleep, work on mir” for what they did. We’ve better things to do with our money and time. Zerobama though, as with everything, has “changed” nasa into a muslim outreach program. But one thing he and putin agree upon, both see the need to destroy American or at least cause it serious damage on as many fronts as possible and make it into a lowly european social democracy to stagnate along into the history books.
