Lavrov: Russia-U.S. Ties At 'Rock Bottom'
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said relations between Russia and the United States were at 'rock bottom' and would remain so for some time. In a lecture on October 20, Lavrov said things would only improve when 'unilateral sanctions' were abandoned. The U.S. and other Western countries have imposed sanctions on Russia, alleging it supports separatists in eastern Ukraine with troops and weaponry. Russia denies the claims. (Reuters)
