Lavrov: Obama’s Act on Ukraine may harm relations for a long time

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014 signed by U.S. President Barack Obama may harm relations between Moscow and Washington for a long time.
Lavrov said this during phone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, the press service of the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
“Lavrov pointed that the Ukraine Freedom Support Act signed by the U.S. president, which threatens Russia with new sanctions, can undermine the possibility of normal interaction between our countries for a long time,” reads the statement.
As reported, Obama signed the Ukraine Freedom Support Act on December 18. The document states that it aims to impose sanctions on Russia and to provide additional assistance to Ukraine.
