They are concerned about image, public relations and self-promotion, Zakharova told Rossiya 1 TV. According to her, Washington is well aware of what interests Americans: what the administration of the President Joe Biden has done in the area of bilateral relations and the problems that she herself has created.
The United States sees what is happening and that Russia’s response to Washington’s ill-considered actions is not long in coming. “Blinken has to show something to the people, and he has nothing to show except to catch Sergei Lavrov in the corridors,” explained the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The diplomat accused the secretary of state of using unprofessional methods, the purpose of which is to fill the void in American diplomacy.
Earlier, it was reported that Blinken requested a touchdown with Lavrov on the sidelines of the G-20 ministerial summit, but there were no negotiations. A brief meeting of diplomats lasted 10 minutes. According to Blinken, he suggested that Moscow return to the implementation of the START treaty, raised the issue of the American Paul Whelan accused of espionage, and also demanded the stop of the special operation and the opening of a diplomatic dialogue.
The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry confidently parried all the remarks of the Secretary of State.
