Moscow Can Switch to 'Active Containment' Policy If US Keeps Putting Pressure, Ryabkov Says

Russia can switch to the "active containment" policy if Washington does not abandon its hostile policy of putting pressure on Moscow, deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov said in an interview with Sputnik.

"Regardless of their sanctions, we will not abandon the constructive agenda in our relations with the US. However, we cannot implement this on our own. If the US policy remains unchanged, if it keeps prioritizing pressure, then we will pursue the policy of active containment of the US on all fronts," Ryabkov warned.

According to the Russian diplomat, the containment policy will include steps to counter sanctions and "US attempts to have influence on our domestic processes." Moscow will also internationally promote the idea that "a multiporal world is not some abstract concept, there is an alternative to the US dictatorship, the policy of consolidating sane forces in the international community to counter the US foreign policy and information aggression," Ryabkov continued.
