U.S. congressmen with anti-Russian stances, in particular amid the events in Ukraine, are trying to undermine the positions of current U.S. President Barack Obama in such a way, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Interfax on Thursday.

"Many facts show that those in Congress with fierce anti-Russian stances pursue a main goal - to undermine positions of Barack Obama personally and to prepare for the next presidential elections," Lavrov said.

"We see all this. We take this philosophically. We do not react to nervous breakdowns. I think that life will put everything in its place," the minister said.
