"On our side, we have been initiating continuously the issue of removing irritations, which Washington had made in the bilateral agenda. We insist the US law enforcers stop "hunting" for Russians in third countries. We insist on observing of the rights of compatriots living in the US, especially a proper protection of interests of the adopted Russian children."
"We hope, the visit of the US Secretary of State John Kerry to Russia - the third in less than one year - will favor returning to normal the Russian-American relations, upon atmosphere of which depends a lot the general climate on the international arena."
