"The US not only unleashed a hybrid war against Russia, which is being waged, apparently, until the last Ukrainian and [in which] no one has canceled the task of inflicting a strategic defeat on Russia, but they are also demonstrating an increasing focus on changing power here, organizing internal Russian unrest,” said the deputy minister.
He noted that in these conditions, the confrontational scenario between Moscow and Washington has become "a reality from which we must proceed.” At the same time, Ryabkov didn’t rule out that further escalation by the US might lead to a severance of Russian-American diplomatic relations.
The range of choices, taking into account the mood in Washington, is small. A purely negative option is further escalation, up to (in the diplomatic direction) a rupture of extremely thin bilateral relations. Or a less dramatic option: total containment of Russia and China with elements of dialogue, combined with active attempts to split the world majority that disagrees with the Western world order based on rules,” explained the deputy foreign minister of the Russian Federation.
