Moscow is no longer willing to make any concessions in order to mend the rift with Western powers, leaving the ball in their court, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday.
The top diplomat reiterated a point made by President Vladimir Putin in his interview with Tucker Carlson, that multiple unilateral gestures by Moscow had not been reciprocated by the West.
Lavrov was answering a question on whether Donald Trump's possible return to the White House next year could result in improved relations.
At a conference titled 'Euromaidan: Ukraine's Lost Decade', he said:
"That is their problem. We have made so many concessions, gestures of goodwill... that our reserves have been exhausted. The only gesture we've seen from them in response to our good deeds was made with one hand."The event marked the 10th anniversary of a Western-backed coup in Kiev, which set Ukraine on a collision course with Russia, Lavrov noted.
