Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said "it is humiliating for the American people to realize that the Russian federation is controlling the situation in America" during a Wednesday morning presser at the Russian Embassy in the U.S.

More highlights, thanks to translations from CBS and CTV:

His theory on Russian meddling allegations: "I believe that politicians are damaging the political system of the U.S. trying to pretend that someone is controlling America from the outside."

On his conversation this morning: "He didn't raise the issue of Russia's involvement into America's elections last year."
