28.01.2015 - Article by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov “Russia’s Priorities in Europe and the World” published in the January issue of the Serbian journal Horizons

28.01.2015 - Permanent Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin’s statement and remarks at a UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine, New York, January 26, 2015

Mr Chairman, Russia is gravely concerned about the escalation in Ukraine. For days at a time, cities and towns in Southeast Ukraine become the targets of indiscriminate shelling from heavy weaponry, in which hundreds of civilians have died. We firmly condemn this treatment of civilians and express our sympathy to all the victims, irrespective of the city or town in which the tragedy happened.

28.01.2015 - Statement by the Foreign Ministry on the developments in Ukraine’s southeast

Tension in Ukraine’s southeast has again sharply escalated. The offensive launched by the Ukrainian forces and their on-going shelling of peaceful cities and villages, add to the growing civilian death toll and cause enormous damage to the infrastructure of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

The S&P decision to drop Russia’s sovereign rating is in line with this policy.

28.01.2015 - Comment by Konstantin Dolgov, Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law, on the Russia chapter of the UK Foreign Office Human Rights and Democracy Report

The chapter on Russia in the Human Rights and Democracy Report, which the UK Foreign Office updated a few days ago, has the same flaws as previous reports. It exhibits the same selective and formulaic assessments, disregard for facts and double standards, which London and some other Western capitals have been known to use.
