Russia has criticized the US approach to ultimatums and sanctions in relations with other countries

Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, commenting on the recent statement of the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on anti-Russian measures, criticized the American approach to ultimatums and sanctions in relations with other countries.

“In American diplomacy, I see nothing but ultimatums now, and in case of refusal to accept them — sanctions. Other tools somehow disappeared from the Arsenal of American diplomacy, and it’s sad”, – said Lavrov.

Lavrov also noted that the very activity as head of the foreign Ministry lies in constantly search for diplomatic approaches to solving various kinds of problems.
