Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said today, Tuesday, that what is happening in Sudan is a tragedy.
He also considered that Sudan has the right, if desired, to use the services of the Russian private security group Wagner.

Lavrov also stressed that the conflicting parties in Sudan should come to an agreement without outside interference.
Lavrov said: “Geopolitical engineering will not end well. We should not prevent the conflicting parties from reaching an agreement among themselves by adding demands from abroad that do not reflect the interests of these countries.”
Lavrov also confirmed that UNICEF had approached the Russian embassy in Sudan with a request to help the staff of the organization, adding: “Today, UNICEF representatives approached our embassy with a request to somehow shelter their staff because they are in an unsafe place. can be done, but we will do it now.”
