Russia blames US for creating ‘artificial atmosphere of hostility’

Baku – APA. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has voiced concern over new statements by US Air Force secretary, who called Russia “the biggest threat to US security” and added that this claim had nothing to do with Moscow’s actual actions, RT reported.

“As far as the statements from Washington are concerned, we have already got used to the fact that the Department of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee and the Air Force secretary regularly make statements that usually come from politicians,” Lavrov said on Thursday. He emphasized that the Russian side was very concerned by this situation and noted that they are creating “an artificial atmosphere of hostility” that has nothing in common with Russia’s activities in real life.

 

The comment was prompted by the latest statement by US Air Force Secretary Deborah James, who told Reuters on Wednesday that she considered Russia “the biggest threat”.
