MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Attempts to achieve Russia's isolation have failed, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.
"We have become a target of an unprecedented confrontation campaign aimed to pressure Russia," Lavrov told the Rossiya 24 channel.
He said the campaign was "not only economic and financial but also informational and propagandist."
"Its purpose to isolate Russian was openly proclaimed. But it failed," the minister said.
He said he saw Russia's great achievement in "our patience, self-confidence, rejection of attempts to punish us for the truth, striving for justice and refusal to leave our compatriots in the lurch."
Speaking about the recent successes of the Russian diplomacy, Lavrov said that Russia had succeeded in "drawing attention to the necessity to respect principles of the international law," including people' s right to self-determination.
