29.05.2014 - EURASIAN ECONOMIC UNION - A NEW REALITY IN WORLD AFFAIRS (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Today President Vladimir Putin, Presidents of Kazakhstan and Belarus Nursultan Nazarbayev and Alexander Lukashenko singed the Agreement establishing the Eurasian Economic Union. It will come into force on the Customs Union territory on January 1, 2015. Work on the document began back in November 2011 at the first summit of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, when a declaration on Eurasian economic integration, a sort of “roadmap” for this integration project, was adopted.


29.05.2014 - Who undermines the Budapest Memorandum (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Yesterday, at one of my meetings in London, my interlocutors asked me about the future of the Budapest Memorandum of 5 December 1994, that is widely seen as an agreement under which Ukraine relinquished its nuclear weapons in exchange for guarantees of security and territorial integrity provided by Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom. I explained all the details but probably the issue is also of interest to the wider public.


28.05.2014 - We must keep calm and carry on trading (by Alexander Yakovenko, Russian Ambassador to UK)

Russia and the UK have always been active trading partners, but today that relationship is being tested. Ukraine is weighing heavily on the political dialogue and there are attempts to hamper our commitment to economic co-operation.


27.05.2014 - We must carry on trading (Russian Ambassador to UK Alexander Yakovenko, special to RBTH)

Russia and the UK have always been active trading partners, but today that relationship is being tested.


12.05.2014 - The need to combat modern fascism (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Every year on 8 and 9 May Europe celebrates the liberation from fascism. It is a day to commemorate those who died during the Second World War, but also, it is a day to recall that our generations must do what we can to prevent a new resurgence of the Nazi ideology (let alone practice!) that poisoned our continent and led to unheard-of atrocities, that tarnished our continent in international community.


09.05.2014 - Ukrainian crisis: the way towards solution (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Russia is giving all its attention to settling crisis in Ukraine. Nobody can be indifferent to what is happening there.


30.04.2014 - What must be done to reduce tensions in Ukraine (Russian Ambassador to UK Alexander Yakovenko, special to RBTH)

Alexander Yakovenko, Russia's ambassador to the UK, discusses Western media coverage of the situation in Ukraine and the role Russia can play in resolving the crisis.


30.04.2014 - What must be done to reduce tensions in Ukraine (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

The situation in Ukraine is tense, though there are signs of diplomatic progress. At the Geneva meeting on April 17, Russia, the US, the EU and the Kiev authorities agreed principles that, if implemented, may lead to de-escalation.


09.04.2014 - On federalism, Ukraine, rhetoric and accountability (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

The issue of federalism has become a focal point in the international effort to settle the Ukrainian crises. It started with the EU ill-conceived attempt at solf-landing Ukraine unilaterally into a more positive and sustainable future, presumably, for common good. I’d like to cite two examples of the softening power of federalism.


08.04.2014 - Remarks by Ambassador Yakovenko at the opening of Russia's stand at the London Book Fair-2014

Ladies and Gentlemen! I am delighted to welcome you to the London Book Fair-2014.
