US trying to turn entire world into own backyard - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in his speech before the United Nations General Assembly accused the United States of attempting to turn the entire world into "its own backyard," through the use of sanctions and military aggression, which have only targeted civilians.

Lavrov blasted Washington for using punitive measures as a form of "political blackmail" to get other nations to cave in to its own demands. He said the West introduces "dividing lines" and that it is not looking to compromise.

The official went on to condemn the US for spreading NATO to the east and for "playing with fire" with regard to Taiwan. The foreign minister accused Washington of erecting itself an "envoy of god on earth, without any obligations but only the sacred right to act with impunity wherever and however they want."
