MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that Washington is to blame that the relations of Russia and the United States "hit rock bottom."
"Unfortunately, in the wake of developments in Ukraine and owing to efforts of the US President (Barack) Obama’s administration, this relationship (of Russia and the US) has dropped to the lowest level ever, just hit rock bottom," Medvedev said in an interview with Israel’s Channel One broadcaster.
"The relations are at the lowest point, at the extremely lowest point," the Russian head of government said. "Frankly speaking, when we began contacts with the current Administration of President (Barack) Obama, I could not even imagine that they would have dropped to such an unprecedentedly lowest level."
"We used to live through quite good periods in our relations as we used to have common objectives to be solved and we have done so. It includes the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty (SORT), the Iran nuclear deal and lots of others," he said.
Medvedev emphasized the deteriorating relations with the US "are neither our fault nor our choice." "We want these relations to be normal," he said.
