Otherwise, the severance of diplomatic relations may become a reality with all the consequences that this entails, the diplomat said in an interview with TASS.
According to him, it was the United States that launched the flyer of the destruction of bilateral relations, opting for Russia’s self-isolation. At the same time, Washington is now trying to “transfer arrows,” as if it were not the current administration that brought these relations to the point of no return, the diplomat noted.
“We are not going to break relations on our own initiative, but we will not tolerate malicious provocations that leave us no choice,” Darchiev stressed.
Earlier, the Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, called the statements of the US authorities about their unwillingness to enter into a conflict with Russia empty words. He noted that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to the United States showed that neither he nor the US administration is ready for peace. Kyiv and Washington are aiming at the conflict, killing soldiers and further linking the Ukrainian regime to Washington’s needs, the ambassador said.
