The diplomat refused to guess what steps the West would take with regard to Russia. He noted that sanctions are an illegitimate unilateral measure and a dead-end path that will turn against those who initiated it. “Our Western colleagues have absolutely lost the culture of dialogue, diplomatic negotiations, reaching consensus, the ability to creatively seek a balance of interests,” the minister concluded.
