Carpenter: Russia Remains Isolated in OSCE due to Aggression against Ukraine

Speaking at a press-conference on Friday on the sidelines of the OSCE Ministerial, the US Permanent Representative to the Organisation, Michael Carpenter, said Russia remained isolated within the OSCE due to its aggression against Ukraine.

Asked to comment on Lavrov’s stand that the West’s diplomats are cowards, the US Permanent Representative said: “Nobody wants to sit at the table with the [Russian] Foreign Minister [Sergey] Lavrov and listen to lies, disinformation, and propaganda.

So, staying away from that table, I would say, is an act that makes a whole lot of sense if you’re someone who doesn’t engage in masochism.”
