Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said that it is necessary to analyze the current state of relations between Russia and the United States, therefore he has scheduled meetings in various departments in Moscow.
Antonov was invited to Moscow for consultations at the Foreign Ministry after a recent interview with US President Joe Biden on ABC News, in which he said that Russian leader Vladimir Putin would “pay” for meddling in the US presidential election.
“It is necessary to analyze the state of Russian-American relations in which we find ourselves,” the Russian ambassador to the United States noted.
According to Antonov, the Russian side has always emphasized that it is interested in the development of relations between Moscow and Washington to the same extent as their American counterparts.
“How long it will take is difficult to say now, but I proceed from the fact that as long as it is necessary, I will stay as long as it is necessary,” the Russian ambassador explained.
