Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes that the current situation in international relations is harder than it was at the peak of the Cold War.
“Of course, it is tougher now … Then there were two empires: the Western and the Soviet one, and each of them was fueling conflicts with the rival on the territory of third countries, but never within its borders and never directly. Even the public rhetoric was softer. The two camps did not cross the bounds of what was permitted. Today, there are no more rules,” Sergei Lavrov told Esquire magazine.
