RT produced a video of the press conference, “Russian FM Lavrov and EU’s Borrell give joint press conference in Moscow” which can be seen on YouTube.The section in which Lavrov accuses EU states of lying over Navalny poisoning starts at 40 min mark and the section in which he states the EU has become an unreliable partner begins at 45 mins.

Could have been worse. He could have used ‘untrustworthy’ instead of ‘unreliable’.

I always enjoy listening to this channel and to the two people who mostly inform us. There are not many places which give reasoned discussions about world affairs especially Europe.

“Weasel” BORREL was sacked from his last job for taking two salaries without declaring

the income.

ALL of the EUR political and civil service staff know that they are involved in sophistic

mischief if not criminality.

Most of them have their “snouts” in the trough of EU tax payer money.

These EU people are the scum of humanity.

If Borrell were Japanese, he’d have to engage in hari kiri.

Instead, you have all the Russian oligarchs that weren’t on a wanted list and ended up in the UK with bells on.

Great summary, Alexander. It is refreshing to see Mr. Lavrov calling a spade a spade, and not being quite so polite as before. He is still polite, but now in a “stinging” way.

The woke crowd has declared ‘calling a spade a spade’ a racist, sexist, misogynist, white supremacist, anti-abortionist, life-threatening expression and had demanded all decks of cards be confiscated and expunged from history.

I enjoy watching EU representatives at work. It gives me solace in the understanding that America does not stand alone with its cadre of incompetent, clueless and downright venal nincompoops.
