The current «charge on Russophobia» unprecedented, this was not even during the cold war when USA and USSR were ideological differences, said the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov.

«This powerful Russophobia is really unprecedented. This was not during the cold war. There were some rules, the mutual decency. Now all decency thrown aside,» said Lavrov in an interview to the newspaper «Kommersant».

According to Lavrov, «there was such a negative term stability of two rigid blocks, the two world systems — the socialist and imperialist».

«Now there are no ideological differences. All the market economy, democracy, who would like her or treated. <…> However, even in the absence of ideological differences remains competition, which is absolutely normal. But competition must be fair», — said the head of the Russian foreign Ministry.
