Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov repeatedly attacked the U.S. at his annual news conference Monday, accusing Washington of issuing ultimatums and failing to recognize "the reality of the emerging multipolar world".As Trump prepares to mark a year in power, Lavrov said the actions of the current U.S. administration were in some cases "more assertive" than under former President Barack Obama, "despite Trump's line during the election campaign".The U.S. was afraid of fair competition in various areas, including energy and the supply of gas to Europe, Lavrov said, adding that Washington was failing to contribute to the resolution of the Syria conflict.
