Ukraine conflict: Military actions unfortunately connected to human loss, says Sergei Lavrov


Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov has said Western leaders are preparing for war against Russia and that Moscow would press on with military action in Ukraine “until the end”.

Channel 4 News was the only British broadcaster to be given access to the video-linked press conference with Mr Lavrov this morning.

Cathy Newman quizzed him on civilian casualties, including the death of 10-year-old Polina Zapadynskaya who was shot by Russian troops near Kyiv as she attempted to flee Ukraine with her family, and the launch of the war crimes investigation by the International Criminal Court.
