MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. Moscow does not want to turn relations with Washington in the “zero-sum game”, it is not the Russian approach. This was stated by Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Ryabkov in an interview to Chinese and Japanese media.
“We don’t want to make relations with the United States in a zero-sum game, – said Ryabkov. We are not guided by falsely understood the logic of “measures-countermeasures”, when regardless of the consequences just because of the fact that our interests suffered damage or Russia is the impact of the hostile forces, we must repay in the same coin. This is not our approach.”
