Sergey Lavrov dismisses Liz Truss meeting as ‘like talking to a deaf person’

In the article Liz Truss does not see any no evidence the Russians are withdrawing from border regions near Ukraine you can read that British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss went visiting Kyiv to talk about the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

The Russian foreign minister publicly taunted Liz Truss as “unprepared” yesterday, likening their face-to-face meeting on the Ukraine crisis to talking to a deaf person. In a sign that the foreign secretary’s mission was proving less than fruitful, Sergey Lavrov said he was disappointed

“that what we have is a conversation of a mute and a deaf person”.

Truss, 46, the first foreign secretary to visit Moscow in four years, met Lavrov to deliver an uncompromising message that Russia should withdraw all its forces from the Ukrainian border immediately to prove its professed peaceful intentions. Standing next to her at an icy joint press conference, the veteran Russian diplomat questioned why Truss had come to Moscow if she had nothing more to add to Britain’s public statements threatening sanctions.

“It’s as if we listen to each other but we don’t hear,”

he said.

“Our detailed explanations fell on unprepared soil.”

Relations between Russia and the UK are just about at zero. The language now being used from Russia’s top diplomat are no longer diplomatic. The two foreign ministers met this week but nothing came out of the visit apart from threats from Britain and pointed sarcasm from Russia.

Britain and the US are leading the way in calling for the strictest sanctions on Russia and even personal sanctions on Putin. Putin’s private yacht has been spotted sailing towards Russia from a Hamburg shipyard, triggering speculation that it was trying to avoid being impounded by sanctions. Daniel 11 says the king of the south (US/UK) will push at Gog (militarily provoke him) and it is personal as it against him. Events in Ukraine could lead to this push. This then leads to Russia invading Israel.

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. (Daniel 11:40)
