Medvedev says Russia-US relations experience "overload" instead of "reset"

Politics A- A A+

The United States is trying to oust Russia from the global world agenda by unleashing an unprecedented sanctions war, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev wrote in his exclusive op-ed for TASS.

"The "reset" of our relations, on which so many hopes were pinned, morphed into an utter "overload". Moreover, this happened solely at the will of our US partners, who flipped from cooperation to political pressure and unleashed an unprecedented war of sanctions against us, trying to oust Russia from the global agenda," Medvedev wrote.

In March 2009, the then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov, with a symbolic gift - a button that would give a signal of a reset, the beginning of a new stage in Russian-American relations. However, the accompanying inscription was made with an error: not "reboot", but "overload".
