Russia and the United States are not in a state of cold war despite Washington's attempts to impose its will on Moscow, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told Chinese and Japanese media outlets in an interview.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ryabkov stressed that there are no reasons for the "cold war" in its old sense between the two nations, because there is no confrontation between the systems and "no fight for the domination of ideas."

At the same time he pointed out that the United States was trying to impose its will on Russia.

"Unfortunately, there are increasing attempts of the United States to dictate its will in relations with Russia and to make our country change its political course, also with the use of the banned methods," Ryabkov added.

The Russian-US relations have been deteriorating since the beginning of the Ukrainian conflict in 2014.

The Russian Foreign Ministry on July 28 suspended the use of all US Embassy warehouses and its compound in Moscow and also requested the US to cut down the number of its diplomatic staff in Russia to 455 people by September 1. The move came amid a new US anti-Russia sanctions bill and follows a series of restriction measures imposed by Washington since 2014. It is similar to Washington's decision to expel 35 Russian diplomats and suspend the use of diplomatic assets by Moscow in late 2016.
