UK searching for excuse to send fleet to Black Sea - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told domestic media on Sunday that the United Kingdom is trying to find an excuse to send the Royal Navy to "infiltrate" the Black Sea and supposedly help in "liberating grain from the ports that were mined by Ukrainians and which Ukrainians have to clear from mines."

At the same time, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a Rossiya 24 interview that Ukraine is using unguided weapons on residential areas of Russian cities with the purpose of provoking "retaliatory strikes" by Moscow's forces. Furthermore, she claimed that the West is likely initiating such moves by Kiev so it could continue "anti-Russian hysteria."

Meanwhile, Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov revealed that the death toll from the Ukrainian attack on the city had risen to four. Three victims had Ukrainian nationality, while one was a Russian citizen, he specified.
