Europe’s desire to isolate Russia is silly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, adding that the doors should remain open, APA reports citing TASS.

"So far, Europe wants to fence itself off from Russia and isolate us. There is no need to explain that this is silly," he said in an interview with Bosnia’s ATV television channel. "It only demonstrates the quality of decisions passed by European politicians in the west of the continent. But the door should be left open.".

The West is lying when it says that Russia allegedly refuses from talks on Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister said.

"Statements that we are rejecting talks are made every day. They claim that they want but we allegedly refuse. This is dishonest. Although, we don’t expect any honesty from our Western partners anymore," he said in an interview with Bosnia’s ATV television channel.

Russia will not take part in any meetings on Ukraine promoting Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelenskyy’s "peace formula," Lavrov said.

"When our Swiss colleagues say that they want to invite Russia to the first conference, they are lying. We will not take part in any events that this or that way promote Vladimir Zelenskyy’s ‘peace formula," he said in an interview with Bosnia’s ATV television channel. "Everybody knows that. We are open to talks on the basis of realities. Everybody knows that.".
