MOSCOW (AFP) – Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Wednesday Moscow was not expecting “anything good” from US President-elect Joe Biden, accusing members of his future administration of “Russophobia”.
“We are definitely not expecting anything good. And it would be strange to expect good things from people, many of whom made their careers on Russophobia and throwing mud at my country,” Ryabkov said.
The interview was released days after the US accused Russia of a major cyber-attack on government agencies. Biden on Tuesday said the attack cannot go “unanswered”, promising to retaliate once he takes office on January 20.
