Moscow: Russia-U.S. ties at breaking point because of Ukraine



The Ukraine conflict has brought Russia-United States relations to breaking point, according to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.

Ryabkov said: “Yesterday, a note of protest was handed over to the American ambassador, noting that what was happening has put relations on the verge of breaking off,’’ Ryabkov said.

He made this known in Moscow on Tuesday, according to the Interfax news agency.

To maintain talks between Moscow and Washington, the U.S. needed to stop supplying weapons to Ukraine and change its rhetoric, Ryabkov said.

“They must stop issuing threats against Russia,’’ he said.

In response to U.S. President Joe Biden’s criticism of Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin, the Russian Foreign Ministry had handed a note of protest to U.S. Ambassador to Moscow John Sullivan on Monday.

Biden had called Putin a war criminal, a murderous dictator and a thug.
