WASHINGTON (Reuters) – New US Secretary of State Antony Blinken called for the release of Americans detained in Russia during a broad call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday that also covered nuclear arms control and China. According to a statement from State Department spokesman Ned Price, the two officials also discussed Solarwinds’ recent attack on US government systems and the poisoning of jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny. Blinken assumed the role of top American diplomat last week as the country’s approach to Russia is expected to change radically under President Joe Biden from the friendly attitude taken by the administration of former President Donald Trump.
