07.05.2015 - Letter to the editor of the Economist (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

Like many Russian citizens, I do have a problem with your highly biased piece on the Great Patriotic War (The Economist, May 2nd 2015).


06.05.2015 - Yemen: recipes imposed from outside won't work (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

Russia consistently calls for a peaceful resolution of the internal political crisis in Yemen. This should be achieved through an inclusive inter-Yemeni dialogue under UN auspices. No ready-made solutions may be imposed from the outside.


24.04.2015 - New Round of Iran nuclear programme talks: Russia's view (Ambassador Yakovenko for Russia Today)

The next round of P5+1 talks with Iran on its nuclear programme may happen next week. The details are being discussed at the meeting of political directors on 24 April in Vienna. Russia doesn't expect any miracles this time. The goal is to continue from where the previous round in Lausanne ended. There are some worrying signals coming from some capitals, and we want to be sure that nothing undermines the Lausanne agreements.


21.04.2015 - Ukraine crisis: facing a Cold War mindset (by Russian Ambassador to UK Alexander Yakovenko, special to RBTH, Full text)

The Ukraine crisis served as a trigger of a broader crisis in the West-Russia relationship. Today, a year and a half after it started, what are the stakes and the bets?


18.04.2015 - Russia’s bilateral ties with Iran: S-300 issue (by Ambassador Yakovenko for Russia Today)

The decision of the Russian Federation to lift restrictions on delivery of S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to Iran is legal, reasonable and will contribute to regional and global stability.


15.04.2015 - Sweden’s “submarine scare”: time to stop this kid stuff (By Ambassador Yakovenko)

“The public has the right to know”: this phrase is frequently used as a popular motto for the British media. Sometimes though, the media in this country seems not to notice some inconvenient facts. Let’s take last year’s “Baltic submarine scare” as an example. We saw a lot of jingoist rants about Russian submarines allegedly spotted somewhere in Swedish territorial waters. The headlines could horrify even the bravest. In the end no proof could be produced and the anti-Russian ratchet died out.


11.04.2015 - Russia’s contribution to Iran nuclear talks (Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Following the recent talks between the P5+1 and Iran, a framework political agreement on the final settlement of Iran’s nuclear program has been reached.


06.04.2015 - NATO’S activity near Russia’s borders: why? (Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Some recent statements about a buildup of US troops in Eastern Europe in the framework of the so-called military operation “Atlantic Resolve” are a matter of concern.


06.04.2015 - Yemen: West’s double standards again? (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

The international community is extremely concerned over the latest developments in the Republic of Yemen, the sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of which Russia has always and consistently supported.


06.04.2015 - The Arctic: a territory for non-politicized dialogue for the benefit of mankind (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

The Arctic region has always been very important to Russia. At present, our country is implementing a strategy for a full-scale, balanced and complex development of the Arctic, including research, technology and the protection of the environment.
