23.02.2015 - Letter to the Editor of the Daily Telegraph, published on 23 February 2015

SIR – You report, in accordance with the unfriendly statements of Michael Fallon, that the flights of Russian strategic bombers were, so the MoD said “unprecedented since the height of the Cold War”. Russian planes do regularly fly to remote geographical areas and will continue to do so. This is required for personnel training and to verify aircraft capabilities. All flights are carried out in strict accordance with international regulations.

The extraordinary hysteria launched in the British media after Defence Secretary Michael Fallon accused Russia of preparing an attack against the Baltic states and of repeated violations of aviation safety rules warrants some clarifications regarding the actual scope of Russia's and NATO's air forces activities.

04.02.2015 - Inter-Syrian contacts in Moscow: step in the right direction (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

23.01.2015 - WHAT I’M TELLING FOREIGN OFFICE ON UKRAINE (Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Russia is actively working with its European partners on the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis, including within the Normandy format. We stress for the urgent need of starting an inclusive dialogue in Ukraine to discuss in detail and coordinate the constitutional system of Ukraine as a stable and safe country for all Ukrainian citizens without exceptions.


15.01.2015 - Terrorist attacks in Paris: need for deeper counterterrorism cooperation (Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)
