The domestic political situation in the USA negatively affects international relations. This also includes relations with Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on July 12 in the program “Moscow. Kremlin.
“What happens there, in the largest economy in the world, in the largest nuclear, military power, is, of course, regrettable, because it affects the entire system of international relations,” he said.
Putin emphasized that Russia should behave appropriately, and not “like a razor crazy.”
Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov in the same program noted that Russian-American relations are now “at a low point,” and described their condition as very bad. At the same time, he noted that contacts at the expert level are timid and do not bring closer to mutual understanding in the field of preserving arms control agreements.
On July 10, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, commenting on the US intention to invite China to arms control negotiations, said that Russia was ready for such meetings, but their composition should be balanced.
