27.08.2015 - The Middle East: learning from history or repeating it? (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

The successful conclusion of the talks with Iran on its nuclear program is a rare bright spot on the otherwise gloomy horizon of the Middle Eastern affairs. That is a fundamental breakthrough, including in terms of political psychology, upon which, in theory, a sustainable regional architecture could be built.

22.08.2015 - Threats to cyber security can only be deterred together (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are being increasingly used for unlawful and hostile purposes that are inconsistent with the basic principles of international law. Some members of the international community are openly strengthening their cyber offensive potentials, forgetting that it could undermine international stability and security. The examples of ICTs being used as a means of achieving political goals are growing by the day. This also includes the expansion of extremist ideology and criminal activity. Under the circumstances, ensuring of cyber security on an agreed and acceptable basis by the UN member-states is the only way to effectively respond to the evolving threat. Having that in mind, Russia welcomes the UN Group of Governmental Experts' (GGE) recent report on this issue. An idea of an international code of conduct for information security has been discussed and the necessity of its adoption has been underlined. This fully reflects Russia's position on the issue. In 2011 Russia together with some other members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization put forward a draft paper "International code of conduct for Information Security" that has been circulated as a "food for thought" at the 66th UNGA session. Later the SCO's members tabled a new version of this paper as an official document of the UN with the view to put emphasis on human rights. Besides, Russian draft resolution "Developments in the field of information and telecommunications in the context of international security" has been adopted by consensus at the 69th session of the UNGA.
