Russia is ready to dialogue with the West on terms of equality, said the Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

«We always invite the West to dialogue, we are ready for dialogue based on equality and respect of interests each other» — he said, speaking at a master class for participants of the contest «Leaders of Russia».

He stressed that to put pressure on Russia is futile. «No threats, no blackmail, sanctions, pressure will not force us to abandon what we believe is right and fair,» — said the Minister.
