There are several ways to cope with the anger one feels over the annexation of Crimea, according to a top Russian official.
“What can one advise our U.S. colleagues to do?” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov asked the Interfax news agency rhetorically.
“Spend more time in the open, practice yoga, stick to food-combining diets, maybe watch some comedy sketch shows on TV.”
The deputy foreign minister went on to criticize the U.S.’s official response to the annexation, which included slapping sanctions against several of President Vladimir Putin’s top aides, as childish and hysterical.
“Tantrums, weeping and hysteria won’t help,” he says.
Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea peninsula last month has made relations between Western powers and Moscow extremely tense.
Tens of thousands of Russian troops continue to mass along the Ukrainian border sparking fears of a possible invasion into the country’s east, which is home to a large population of ethnic Russians.
