Sergey Lavrov, the foreign minister of Russia, charged that the West was putting pressure on developing nations to support Ukraine.
On another leg of his African tour, Lavrov made his comments on Wednesday (Jan. 25) in Luanda while openly appealing for international assistance.
The main subject of discussion with the Angolan government was the conflict in Ukraine, and they requested an evaluation of the ground situation from Lavrov.
The head of Russian diplomacy accused Western allies of “turning Ukraine into the stage of a hybrid war” against Russia and pointed the finger at them.
Angola initially refrained from denouncing the Russian invasion at the UN.
It didn’t support the resolution denouncing the annexation of Ukrainian territory until October.
The president of Angola urged Moscow to declare “a definitive and unconditional ceasefire” earlier this month.
The second bilateral summit between Russia and Angola in their history is currently being planned for April in Luanda.
