Lavrov accuses Zelensky of hypocrisy

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky of hypocrisy on Thursday.

Lavrov noted that Zelensky once stated in an interview that he believes everyone should have equal rights no matter where they live, but claimed the Ukrainian president himself does not respect these values as his government wanted to "drive Russians away" from his country for wanting to preserve their culture.

The top Russian diplomat also slammed the West for supporting Ukraine and claiming Kiev's values align with European values of freedom and democracy. He stressed that, if European diplomats "interpret EU values in this way ... we want nothing in common with them."
