MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told US counterpart Mike Pompeo in a phone call on Thursday that Washington's "destructive" approach to ties with Moscow was impeding bilateral cooperation, Russia's foreign ministry said.

Lavrov told the US secretary of state the United States should immediately stop "persecuting" detained Russian citizen Maria Butina, who is being held in the United States on suspicion of acting as a Russian agent.
