State Department spokesman Price said Russia is aware of being a pariah Russia is aware of being isolated because of the military actions in Ukraine, said a State Department spokesman. The Russian leadership is trying to stop dissatisfaction with the country, but the countries with the strongest economies condemn their actions
The Russian authorities understand that the country has become a pariah in the international arena, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said at a briefing. The broadcast was on YouTube.
“It becomes clear that Russia is aware that its actions lead to the fact that it becomes an outcast, it has no illusions about this at this point,” — Price said in response to a journalist's question about how the White House understands Russia's isolation.
He added that during the summit of foreign ministers, the G20 countries showed a “broad consensus” about the fact that Russia should be condemned for its actions in Ukraine and the provocation of the food crisis in the world.
Then the journalist pointed out that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov went on a tour of Africa, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu was present at the signing of an agreement on the export of grain in Turkey, and President Vladimir Putin was in Iran. He again asked if the United States sees the isolation of Russia?
The representative of the State Department noted that Lavrov is trying to interact with countries in order to stop dissatisfaction with Russia. Meanwhile, he explained that the US does not care much about where the Russian representatives are. More importantly, Russia heard from the G20 countries and the UN a signal about the losses that its leadership bears due to hostilities in Ukraine.

In mid-July, a meeting of the foreign ministers of the G20 countries was held in Indonesia. Host country minister Retno Marsudi said the G7 countries refused to send representatives to the welcome dinner due to Lavrov's presence, Reuters reported. Western delegates avoided joint photos with the Russian minister, Kyodo wrote. The organizers canceled the traditional group photo. Lavrov said he did not invite anyone to be photographed.
Later, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken pointed out that Russia was isolated at the G20 summit. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at the time that he was “composing tales.”
After Putin's July 19 trip to Iran, the White House National Security Council (NSC) Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby said his visit showed the degree of isolation between Putin and Russia. He noted that Russia turned to Iran for help (before the hostilities in Ukraine, the country was in first place in terms of the number of sanctions, then it was overtaken by Russia.— RBC).
Representative Kremlin Dmitry Peskov stressed that Moscow does not agree with the US statements about the isolation of Russia and considers such an assessment to be fundamentally wrong.
