The current crisis in the world signals that the US hegemony has come to an end and there is a chance to switch to a fair and democratic multipolar world order, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Saturday at the general debate during the 77th session of the UN General Assembly.
According to Lavrov, the situation has been sparked by the West’s long-term policy, but this can be changed with the UN’s assistance.
