MOSCOW, March 08, 3:08 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who had a telephone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday, warned Washington against rash steps that might ultimately tell negatively on the United States, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
“Sergei Lavrov warned against hasty and rash steps that might have a negative effect on the Russian-U.S. relations, especially in what concerns sanction measures that might have boomerang impact on the United States in the long run,” the ministry noted.
