Diplomatic barbs were once again exchanged between the U.S. and Russia Friday, one day after Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov came face to face at the G-20 summit in India. 

The run-in was the first time the chief diplomats had engaged in person since Russian President Vladimir Putin launched his invasion more than a year ago, and the brief encounter appeared to do nothing to warm icy relations. 

During a security conference in New Delhi with top Indo-Pacific allies India, Australia and Japan – a partnership dubbed the Quad – Blinken warned that standing up to Russia was more important than ever if international allies want to maintain peace in other regions of the world.
