    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov states that the international relations are undergoing a turning point to a polycentric world order.

    DVORIKI (Russia) (Sputnik) — International relations are undergoing a turning point with a gradual transformation to a polycentric world order, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.

    "We are definitely witnessing a turning point in international relations now. The period which is characterized by the domination of what we call the West in international affairs is becoming the past, while a so-called polycentric model of the world order is being formed," Lavrov said at a youth forum Terra Scientia in the Vladimir Region.

    Lavrov noted that the multipolar shift in the world is facing challenges amid attempts of the dominating powers to preserve their dominance.

    "First of all, the change of epochs is a very prolonged period… Secondly, I stress that this process is being actively hindered, aside from objective reasons. Those who impede are mainly the ones who had been dominating in the world and want to preserve its dominance in the new circumstances forever," Lavrov said.

    The foreign minister stressed that the current globalization model with its financial and economical stance was suffering a failure.

    The national educational forum for Russian youth Terra Scientia, which is taking place on Klyazma River in Russia's Vladimir Region from June 27 to August 20, will gather 7,000 Russian master and bachelor students, specialists and postgraduate students aged 18 to 30.
