Foreign Minister Lavrov's press conference today (in English)

As always, Lavrov makes a brilliant case for his point of view.  I still think that Russia made a major mistake, but I can't help liking Lavrov a lot and finding him absolutely brilliant.  I hope that he has some kind of game-plan I am not aware of.

It's a long press conference, but at least listen to his reply to the first question as it is about Syria and his answer is nothing short of brilliant.  But if you can - listen to the full thing.  It is a major review of Russian diplomatic and political goals for the near future.
