Tillerson made the comments in a meeting with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrovsaying he sees Moscow's relations pragmatically and believed problems could be addressed.

While Russia lashes out against the United States, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has adopted a subdued tone on bilateral relations, saying on Monday that Washington wouldn't sever ties with Moscow after the mass expulsion of US diplomatic staff, and stressing that the two countries need to find ways to work together.

The House of the Representatives and the US Congress legislated the sanctions law which was signed by President Donald Trump. The Russian Foreign Ministry also said it would seize two US diplomatic properties - cottages just outside Moscow's city center and a warehouse facility in the capital. A U.S. Justice Department investigation is moving ahead into Russia's election interference and potential Trump campaign collusion.
We regret the imposition by the U.S. Congress of a new package of sanctions and the increase in attacks on Moscow over the past few months. Lavrov announced that Tillerson's special envoy for Ukraine negotiations, former ambassador to NATO Kurt Volker, will travel to Russian Federation soon to discuss the conflict. The U.S. cut military ties to Russia over Moscow's annexation of Crimea and accuses the Kremlin of fomenting unrest in eastern Ukraine by arming, supporting and even directing pro-Russian separatists there who are fighting the Kiev government.
