We noted the article in the New York Times of the 9 April laying down the main content of the “internal report” of the US intelligence community about the actions of intelligence agencies, before and during the terrorist attack in Boston.

Question: Hello, Sergey Viktorovich. I feel that now you are not just a Minister of Foreign Affairs, but a Minister of Military Affairs. Every time I see and hear you, I sense a tremendous concern and think the world has gone mad. My generation does not remember such a level of escalation. What is really happening? Sergey Lavrov: I think that the entire world system is being reformatted, because after the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact disappeared, those whom we call “the West” lost their historical opportunities, when Russia proposed several initiatives, which would not only allow them to truly unite the European continent, but also the Euro-Atlantic region, including Eurasia.

Question: It is not the best period in Russian-US relations right now. The United States shut down the work of the Presidential Commission and interaction in the intelligence area. In your opinion, how will this situation develop? Is there a possibility to reverse the negative trend?
