PORVOO (Finland), May 4. /TASS/. The Russophobic campaign unleashed under the Obama administration still persists at present in the United States, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with his Finnish counterpart Timo Soini on Thursday.
“At this stage when a change in the White House administration was taking place, our relations were at its lowest point because the Obama administration did everything possible to undermine them,” Lavrov pointed out.
“It is deplorable that the Russophobic campaign unleashed by the Obama administration still persists today in the US as well,” the Russian top diplomat noted.
According to Lavrov, “it is obvious that this is done to try to use the Anti-Russian card in the US domestic political struggle, which includes those who still won’t accept the results of the elections that were held in full compliance with the US Constitution.”
"We see that the US Congress is establishing some inter-departmental structures to probe ‘the Russian threat’ but we have not seen or heard any facts till now that would confirm the accusations against us," Russia’s top diplomat emphasized.
Recently, France, the United Kingdom and recently Sweden have joined in the anti-Russian chorus. Yet, Moscow’s top diplomat pointed out these verbal attacks have not been backed by anything.
"If there are facts, they can be discussed then. If there are no facts, we perceive this campaign solely as propaganda aimed at achieving dubious goals," the foreign minister said.
