    With God on our side, and not on your side...

    Is the Foreign Minister attempting to be sarcastic here? Implying the Western nations see their agenda vis-a-vis Eastern Europe as holy, ordained and blessed by God? A deft and humorous touch, reminds me of Rush:

    Министр иностранных дел России Сергей Лавров назвал шабашем "Крымскую платформу", которую собирается провести Киев.

    "Через неделю состоится очередной шабаш — "Крымская платформа", на которой Запад будет продолжать пестовать неонацистские, расистские настроения современной украинской власти", — сказал глава МИД РФ на встрече с участниками арт-кластера "Таврида".

    шабаш -> "sabbath"

    a day of religious observance and abstinence from work, kept by Jewish people from Friday evening to Saturday evening, and by most Christians on Sunday.
    "we observe the Sabbath as God has commanded"
    a supposed annual midnight meeting of witches with the Devil.

    Def. "2" of course, has only been around for a couple of decades; Def. "1" has been the standard for millennia. And the FM was likely ridiculing the devout sacredness by which the Left adorns their agenda.

    Putin and Lavrov both seem to be increasingly sardonic with regards to the actions and words of the West's "leaders." And why not? Pass a certain point, and you can no longer find rhyme nor reason in such actions and words, nor find any reasonable way to react or counter it. It's impossible to comprehend such a glittering tower of ignorance, so you just have to laugh at it.
