Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov - BBC HARDtalk rushes

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
*** This is the full and unedited interview with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov speaking exclusively to HARDtalk's Stephen Sackur in Moscow 16th April 2018. ***
In recent days the world has been alarmed by the very real possibility of a direct military confrontation between the United States and Russia. Syria is of course where the current tensions are highest, and where missiles have been fired, but the hostility is deep-seated on a number of fronts. We’ve had diplomatic expulsions, sanctions, there’s talk of a new cold war. What is Russia’s next move?

thanks Hardtalk, I'm convinced now more and more that Russia's position and arguments are the most reasonable, compared to the US's and UK's

Sackur is a terrible interviewer trying to push the propaganda of his own government and got spanked hard as the result.

Lavrov is throwing some serious shade on this so called Hard talk haha... The interviewer is ridiculous. He only wants to hear what he believes in... This should be renamed to Dumb Talk...

Well done Mr. Lavrov. That provoking propaganda from that british pseudo journalist doesn't work.

I was deeply ashamed of the way that one of the most important politicians in the world was spoken to in this interview. No manners, no professionalism as a journalist, endless british propaganda trotted out as truth, in a revolting arrogant tone. I would believe Sergey Lavrov or Mr. Putin and day of the week above May or the dreaded Boris. I was a tory in the days of McMillan, Heath, Butler and others who were worthy of the name "leading politician". With any of the present crew, I have nothing but contempt and shame that this country has sunk so low.

Every time Lavrov makes a valid point, this idiotic BBC interviewer interrupts him, and changes the subject. How low can you get?

When Lawrow tried to explain why the purity of the Novichok was a problem (because it deteriorates rapidly) he was cut off 2 times by Sackur. In general: this was not asking tough questions looking for valid answers, which would be good journalism, but rather acting rude trying to please Sackurs superiours including the political commissars of GB. Lawrow did well and stayed calm. I think the british (and US and french) position is as laughable as it is dangerous. Acting this way GB will lead us into WW3. You don´t need us, the germans, to become idiotic warmongers, as was claimed during all my years of existance, even in history lessons at my highschool and university. Thanks for clarifying that. Probably british colonial phantom pain diminishes UKs ability to reason.

BBC is guilty of creating the narrative for regime change and potential WW3, based on no evidence, treason is the charge, hope you hang for deception of the thick masses

There is no evidence of any chemical attack in Douma. The evidence put forward by the west in unfortunately false and based on media reports and purely fabricated! Shame on us. The west has lost the plot and I sympathise with Russia.

I admire Mr. Lavrov for his composure and depth of knowledge. Reference to Hitler should be very insulting to Russians, the nation who lost about 20 million people and suffered a lot in WWII. How low the establishment can go?
