MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. Moscow wants to understand Washington’s intentions in order to make a decision on how to respond to the possible expansion of sanctions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the national broadcaster RBC.
"We will surely respond if new sanctions are imposed," the minister responded, when asked how Russia would react to the expansion of sanctions. "We will see first, what the intentions our US counterparts express, as they have been threatening a lot lately but they are still in contact with us. Yesterday (US Secretary of State John) Kerry called me on the phone, he expressed his interest and intention to cooperate with us," the Russian foreign minister noted.
