Maria Zakharova on Russian TV

Lavrov trolls Rex Tillerson prior to Moscow meeting 11.04.2017



This week, the US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, and UK Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Boris Johnson, were set to meet with Russia's representatives in Moscow. Johnson has since pulled out of the meeting, in wake of the US airstrike on Syria, citing "Russia’s continued defence of the Assad regime." While the backdrop to this meeting sets the stage to be particularly on edge, it is also true that to this day, no coherent foreign policy strategy has been made public on behalf of the Trump administration, and most certainly, no collusion has taken place with President Putin (despite the fake news rumours on CNN and BBC)

In this clip, Maria Zakharova, Foreign Affairs Spokesperson, remains her pragmatic self in her stance on illegal US actions. Most notably, she claims that one of the components to the recent attack on Syria by the US, is to mask the humanitarian disaster that is Mosul, under a US-led counter-terrorism operation. Lavrov, Russia's Foreign Affairs Minister - he reminds Tillerson that he does not dance with boys!
