13.12.2021 - Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov’s interview with Izvestia, December 13, 2021

Question: Mr Ryabkov, is there any predictability in relations with the United States today? Sergey Ryabkov: There is one-sided negative predictability, in fact. As for any prospects for improvement, everything is completely unpredictable.

These problems did not emerge yesterday. They have to do with the US tendency, by and large, to deny Russia the role of a major independent player in international relations while trying to impose its own approaches to a whole range of issues, including how we should live in our own country.

08.12.2021 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s comment on air incidents above the Black Sea, 8 December 2021

The military activity of the United States and NATO member states along the perimeter of Russia’s borders, including military flights and dangerous manoeuvres by naval ships, continues to mount. The US military and its NATO allies have gone from attempts to test the strength of our border protection system to provocations against civilian aircraft, which jeopardises the safety of the airspace and puts human lives in danger.
