How to use succeed in a sentence?

  1. Sergey Lavrov:

    The attempt of Americans to build a unipolar world did not succeed, they understand it. The whole world understands that you can't do without Russia. The very fact of a meeting and dialogue is a vivid confirmation of it. Honor and praise to President Vladimir V. Putin for being able to strengthen Russia's authority in the international arena so that no matter how the Americans and the EU try to exist in confrontation with us, to pressure us with sanctions, they still have to look for ways of getting closer with us. They all still have to come to Russia.
