Lavrov: US seizure of diplomatic property is robbery in broad daylight
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has denounced the ongoing spat over Moscow’s diplomatic property in the US as "robbery in broad daylight".
"As for the crux of what you quoted, if it is so, then it is robbery in broad daylight. It turns out that some tough guys are commenting on this situation," Lavrov stressed, touching upon the statements by high-ranking White House officials that the US was not going to give Russia its diplomatic property back without getting something in return."
"Decent and well brought-up people do not behave in such way," TASS cited the minister as saying.
