MOSCOW, April 25 (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday accused Washington of distorting an international agreement on Ukraine by making additional demands on Moscow.

"Russia will firmly contribute to the de-escalation of the conflict based on the compromise approach agreed in Geneva...there can be no one-sided demands," Lavrov told a meeting with young diplomats in Moscow.

"And we are being presented them - first of all I mean the United States of America who have an outstanding ability to turn everything on its head." (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska and Alexei Anishchuk; Editing by Sonya Hepinstall)
