The US is an enthusiastic supporter of regime change whenever it can benefit from the process, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in an interview with RT. If a coup is aimed at a government that is more flexible to US interests, Washington will inevitably reject it, added the diplomat.
There have been numerous attempts at regime change around the world in recent years and they have had “a different response from the US, depending on who was in power and who was trying to carry out the coup”, Lavrov said on Monday.
“Where the West is happy with the current government, in such situations no protest can be legitimate. But where the government does not reflect hegemonic interests and is pursuing national interests, in these cases we see that various illegal forces are being encouraged. [para atacar as autoridades]”, added the diplomat.
