Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has presented US Secretary of State John Kerry with a World War Two Victory Day T-shirt and two baskets with potatoes and tomatoes during talks in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Russia's Foreign Ministry said on its Facebook page on Tuesday.

Kerry "handed over to the Russian side a list of quotes from the Russian media, which, in his opinion, do not reflect the real potential of wide Russian-American relations, which, according to him, need improvement," the ministry said.

Before the talks, the two top diplomats laid wreaths at a World War Two memorial.
