MOSCOW – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov insists there is no way to improve relations between Russia and Britain, while London wants to bring Moscow “to its knees.”
He responded to a question from the British state broadcaster BBC, on Thursday (6/16/2022), about the bleak state of relations between the two countries.
“I don’t think there is more room for manoeuvre,” Lavrov replied.
