Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov considers the current situation in international relations even more difficult than it was at the height of the Cold War.

The May 2017 issue of the Russian edition of Esquire Magazine features an expansive interview with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

In the interview, Lavrov reveals his personal side, including his love for Russian soccer club Spartak Moscow, his penchant for jazz music, and his fondness for the poetry of Sergei Yesenin and Alexander Blok.

In the same interview, when asked whether the international situation today is simpler or more difficult than it was during the Cold War, Lavrov answered categorically: international relations are harder today.

>”Of course it’s harder now,” the chief Russian diplomat noted. “Back then there were two empires: that of the West and that of the Soviet Union; each fueled conflicts with their rival on the territory of third countries, but never within its borders and never directly. Even the public rhetoric was softer. The two camps did not cross the bounds of what was permissible. Today, there are no more rules.“
