The US State Department is monitoring the resignation of the Russian government. This was reported on the air of the RTVI channel by the head of the press service of the American Foreign Ministry, Morgan Ortagus.
She said that the State Department is aware of the resignation of the Russian government, is following the news and trying to understand what is happening. “I can say that we are on the side of Russian citizens,” she said.
Ortagus noted that US President Donald Trump has repeatedly stated that he wants better relations between the US and Russian governments. According to the representative of the State Department, in this area everything depends on the Russian leaders.
She noted that if they change “hostile behavior”, then relations between countries will improve. In her opinion, it is noticeable in the example of Russia’s possible interference in the US election.
