    According to the Russian Foreing Ministry, it has become obvious in 2015 that the US failed in its attempt to isolate Russia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The failure of the United States to achieve Russia's "isolation" has become obvious in 2015, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement Tuesday.

    "The failure of the US attempts to achieve our country's 'isolation' has become obvious this year, and the intensive bilateral dialogue at the highest and high levels eloquently shows this," the statement, devoted to the main 2015 foreign policy events, reads.

    According to the Foreign Ministry, Moscow and Washington have continued joint work on solving international security and stability issues, including the situations in Ukraine and Syria.

    As the statement notes, the two countries have made an important joint contribution to the achievement of a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.

    Russia’s relations with the United States deteriorated in 2014 largely due to Crimea's reunification with Russia and the escalation of the crisis in eastern Ukraine. The same year, the European Union and the United States introduced several rounds of anti-Russia sanctions, accusing Moscow of fueling the Ukrainian crisis, a claim Moscow has firmly denied.
