Anti-Russian hysteria in the United States is a reflection of its internal political struggle, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with valdaiclub.com. According to him, while continuing to drive up anti-Russian sentiments, American partners believe they will undermine the position of the Trump administration, which for all its extravagance has not abandoned its intentions to improve relations with Russia.

In addition, Lavrov spoke about the importance of finding a golden mean between the centralization of a range of competencies and respect for the sovereignty and national rights of the EU member states, and why reform the UN should be carried out taking into account the interests of not only developed but also developing regions of the world that are clearly underrepresented in particular, in the Security Council, one of the main bodies of the UN system.
