He argued that, instead, the crisis can only be solved by applying principles embedded within the UN Charter, and by creating the conditions for such.
"The use of force is possible only in two cases, provided for by the UN Charter: either in self-defense, when you have been attacked militarily, or by authorization of the UN Security Council.
There is not yet a glimpse of either condition in this case, and I hope that there will not be," he said.
Lavrov also emphasized that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have only led to greater misery, and called for a return to the UN Security Council plus Germany talks.
"For more than a year, already, the Russian Federation has been offering specific, constructive proposals for unblocking the current dead end," he said.
"Our proposals remain on the negotiating table, and I hope that actions will not be taken which would, deliberately or not, destroy the chances that still exist."
