China News Agency, Moscow, March 12 (Reporter Tian Bing) Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov said in Russia's "Channel 1" program on the 12th that Russia has prepared a counter-sanction against the United States and the West. list and will be announced in the near future.

  Ryabkov believes that Russia's previous security recommendations to the United States and NATO are no longer valid, because the current situation has completely changed, and Russia will ensure that the goals set by the Russian leadership for the special military operation in Ukraine are achieved.

  He said that Russia is ready to hold dialogue with the United States on security issues and arms control. "For the future architecture of European security and the future of arms control, if the Americans are prepared for this, we can of course resume dialogue and resolve to do so, including in work within the framework of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty", "It all depends on Washington".

  Ryabkov pointed out that the United States is the biggest source of international tensions.

The depth and complexity of the current crisis in Russia-US relations is "unprecedented" and will take a long time to resolve.

  He said that the supply of weapons from the West to Ukraine will only complicate the situation, and Russia has warned the United States that this move is not only very dangerous, but will make the convoy delivering weapons to Ukraine a legitimate target of Russian troops.

  Ryabkov said Russia would submit new evidence documents about U.S. involvement in more than 300 biological labs around the world.

He pointed out that the Ukrainian biological laboratory exposed recently is only a small part of the more than 300 laboratories around the world that the United States has participated in.

Earlier, Kirillov, commander of Russia's radiation defense, chemical weapons and biological weapons forces, reported that the United States has formed a network of more than 30 biological laboratories in Ukraine, and the tasks of the laboratories are assigned by the Office of Military Threat Reduction of the US Department of Defense.

  In addition, Russian Presidential Press Secretary Peskov confirmed on the same day that Russian Presidential Assistant Mekinsky led the Russian delegation to negotiate with the Ukrainian delegation in the form of online video.

The Kremlin reported on the 12th that Russian President Vladimir Putin mentioned in a phone call with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Scholz that recently Russian and Ukrainian representatives held a series of talks in the form of video.

  The TASS news agency reported that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed the hope that the Ukrainian-Russian negotiation would be advanced in reality, rather than "remaining in words."

Podoljak, adviser to the chief of the office of the Uzbek President, posted on social media that day that Ukrainian-Russian negotiations continue to be conducted in the form of video conferences, and a special working group has been established for this purpose.
