Shouting at him also works

From the Geneva news conference announcing Peace in our Time and Never Again, aka the USA-Russia deal on Bashar al-Assad's already-used chemical weapons:

MODERATOR: The first question will come from Anne Gearan of The Washington Post. 
QUESTION: Yes. Good afternoon. And if – Minister Lavrov, if I could beg your indulgence to please give at least part of your answer in English, could we get a couple of specifics, please?

Lavrov did not answer in English.
