13.01.2017 - Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, January 12, 2016

We expect the officials to focus on Syria, considering our countries’ shared interest in an early political settlement of the extremely dangerous Syrian crisis. This crisis is directly affecting Syria’s neighbour, Jordan, which has accepted over 600,000 Syrian refugees. Like our Jordanian partners, we believe that there is no alternative to a political settlement of the protracted Syrian crisis by the Syrians themselves without any preconditions and with active international support. We have taken active steps within various formats to expedite the achievement of this goal in combination with our contribution to the fight against the terrorist groups in Syria.

On 11 January 2017 a memorial service for Count Alexander Benckendorff, last Ambassador of the Russian Empire to the Court of St. James’s, was held at the Westminster Catholic Cathedral in London. Ambassador Benckendorff died in office on this day 100 years ago. In the nearly 50 years on diplomatic service Benckendorff made a great contribution to the development of Russian-British political and military union as well as strengthening relations between the two countries, including during the First World War.

11.01.2017 - Press release on Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s telephone conversation with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu

11.01.2017 - Comment by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov on the new US sanctions against Russia

On January 9, the outgoing US administration expanded sanctions against Russia, the fourth hostile move in less than three weeks. We could have continued without comment, since the inadequacy of the leaders in Washington, who have fallen into a sanctions-mania, is something that is clear to everyone. But the situation begs for a few pertinent remarks.

10.01.2017 - Russian embassy on the talk of impending official anti-Russian witch hunt in Britain

Judging by media reports (The Sunday Times is particular), the British authorities are planning to emulate the Obama Administration and launch an official campaign to counter presumed “concerted drive by Russia to undermine the UK”. It follows the EU summit and the successful humanitarian evacuation from Eastern Aleppo, brokered by Russia, Iran and Turkey, which helped save lives of thousands people and separate bona fide Syrian opposition from foreign terrorists/jihadists, and the adoption of the UN Security Council resolution 2328 on Syria. Now there is a ceasefire in place endorsed by another UNSC resolution. HMG is also widely suspected of and expected to brief the incoming US Administration against Russia.

02.01.2017 - Notice for Russian citizens

Please take notice that British media with the reference to the Minister of State for Security B.Wallace report that terrorist chemical weapon attacks are possible in the UK on the part of the ISIS.

30.12.2016 - New Year greetings to foreign heads of state and government

Vladimir Putin sent Christmas and New Year greetings to heads of state and government and heads of international organisations. In his congratulatory messages addressed to the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Elizabeth II and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Theresa May, the President of Russia confirmed the conviction that the positive development of bilateral relations and partner collaboration in dealing with pressing international issues meets the interests of the peoples of Russia and the UK.

30.12.2016 - Statement by the President of Russia

We regard the recent unfriendly steps taken by the outgoing US administration as provocative and aimed at further weakening the Russia-US relationship. This runs contrary to the fundamental interests of both the Russian and American people. Considering the global security responsibilities of Russia and the United States, this is also damaging to international relations as a whole. As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-US relations based on the policies of the Trump Administration.
