MOSCOW, December 25 /TASS/. It is necessary to analyze how the U.S.-adopted Ukraine Freedom Support Act is going to be implemented. So far, it only gives the U.S. president a right to take or not to undertake some actions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with the Kommersant daily.
“You know, we have already said that we are going to see how this act is going to be implemented. It is instructive in many ways because it gives the U.S. president a right to do or not to do something,” Lavrov explained when asked whether Russia would retaliate to the U.S. adoption of the Ukraine Freedom Support Act.
“We will see what it will be like in practice,” the Russian diplomat added.
