Russia's Foreign Minister Accuses America of Fueling Ukraine Crisis

Saturday speaking on Russian television Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused America of being the main obstacle to settling the conflict in Ukraine saying, “Our American colleagues still prefer to push the Ukrainian leadership toward a confrontational path.”
