Russia's aggressive actions may lead it to big international isolation. Rex Tillerson, the sacked U.S. Secretary of the State said that in his goodbye speech, as reporters crowded the Department of the State's building, BBC wrote.

"Russia must assess carefully as to how its actions are in the best interest of the Russian people and of the world more broadly. Continuing on their current trajectory is likely to lead to greater isolation on their part, a situation which is not in anyone's interest," he said. 'What is most important is to ensure an orderly and smooth transition during a time that the country continues to face significant policy and national security challenges'.

The official also expressed confidence that during his service, the U.S. administration managed to improve relations with China and to deter the North Korean nuclear threat. 

As is known, Tillerson will be replaced by former CIA Head Mike Pompeo.
