Russian forces aim to protect Donbass civilians - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in Bali on Thursday, that Russian forces are focused on protecting the civilian population of Donbass, "demilitarization, and denazification of Ukraine."

The two foreign ministers emphasized the West's handling of the Ukrainian crisis, underscoring that the "unilateral sanctions" imposed by the West "bypassing" the United Nations were illegal.

Aside from discussing the Ukrainian conflict, the two sides agreed to expand practical cooperation in various fields for "the benefit of the peoples of the two countries," the Russian Foreign Ministry reported in a statement.
