Lavrov: Russia to protect all potential new territories

All potential new Russian territories will be under the state's protection, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (pictured) stated Saturday at a press conference after participating in the 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

"The entire territory of the Russian Federation, which is confirmed in the Russian Constitution, is certainly under the state's full protection," Lavrov said. "All laws, doctrines, concepts, strategies of the Russian Federation apply to its entire territory," he stressed.

Lavrov's remarks follow his speech at the gathering, where he said that the referendums being conducted in east Ukraine were a reaction to the statements and actions of Ukraine.
