22.06.2015 - The West is mean to Russia, but let’s be friends (by Ambassador Yakovenko for The Telegraph)

Russia and Britain have joint experience and interests, which can be a good starting point for improving relations.


21.06.2015 - British view of the Russian foreign policy: misunderstanding or distortion? (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

When one listens to what the British officials and media pundits have to say about Russia's policy towards Ukraine, it is hard not to wonder if it is a simple misunderstanding or a deliberate distortion of facts.The public in this country is intentionally led to believe that it is Russia that violates territorial integrity of Ukraine and intend to occupy and absorb Eastern Ukraine.


20.06.2015 - Supporting closer ties between European Union and Eurasian Union (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

As Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his interview to the Italian newspaper “Il Corriere della Sera” on the 6th of June, we have always proposed a serious relationship to the Europe.


18.06.2015 - Why is US building up arms in Eastern Europe? (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

US media have recently reported the White House’s plans to position arms stockpiles in NATO’s eastern European countries for the purpose of rotational training.


06.06.2015 - Tackling terrorism requires genuinely collective approach (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

The so-called Islamic State (ISIS) is advancing in Iraq and Syria. Its groups are settling in some regions of Libya, there are problems in Lebanon, and there is even evidence of an ISIS presence in Afghanistan. In parallel, other terrorist groups are stepping up their actions, including al-Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula. Meanwhile, the US-led coalition continues delivering air strikes, but it seems like these actions have not yet had an impact on the ISIS’ ability to further expand its cross-border “caliphate”.


29.05.2015 - Small Arms and Lights Weapons: Russian position (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

On 22 May, the United Nations Security Council adopted the Resolution 2220 on the Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) control. Six out of 15 Security Council members – Russia, China, Angola, Chad, Nigeria and Venezuela, abstained from vote on this resolution.


27.05.2015 - Russian economy: overcoming difficulties fast (by Russian Ambassador to UK Alexander Yakovenko, special to RBTH)

For many prominent international observers it is obvious that despite tough challenges, including low energy prices, weak rouble and western sanctions, Russia’s economy has managed to overcome the worst, and started to stabilize, adapting to the new economic reality.


20.05.2015 - Re-engagement between Russia and NATO is in everyone’s interest (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

The end of the Cold War gave unprecedented opportunities to overcome the divisions of Europe. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia has extensively contributed to building a peaceful, secure and stable Euro-Atlantic area. We made a crucial contribution to the elimination of the material legacy of the era of ideological and military confrontation. Our country assumed the obligations to withdraw its troops and armaments from Germany, Central and Eastern Europe and later from the Baltic countries. For the last 25 years Russia has reacted positively to reasonable and mutually beneficial initiatives of the Western partners in the sphere of the European security, although those were scarce and not as far reaching.


18.05.2015 - Russia and the Council of Europe: staunch support for pan-europeanism (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

On 19 May in Brussels the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe will meet for its regular session. In Russia’s view, the session will reaffirm the significant role the Council of Europe plays as one of the most respected and representative regional organizations on our continent, its mission to contribute to creation of a Europe whole and free without dividing lines, to strengthen democratic values, human rights protection mechanisms and rule of law, including international law.


10.05.2015 - Bosnia and Herzegovina: Effective sovereignty through equality of constituent peoples (Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

On May 12, the UN Security Council will hold a debate on Bosnia and Herzegovina. Russia is interested in the sustainable and normal functioning of Bosnian state institutions. The principle of equality for the three constituent peoples, as provided for by the Dayton Accords, must be fully respected.
