22.02.2017 - Comment by the Information and Press Department regarding media question on the internal Libyan crisis

We have taken note of the February 19 interview which Fayez al-Sarraj, Chairman of the Presidential Council of Libya and Prime Minister of the Government of National Accord, gave to Reuters on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference. He said he had a positive view on Russia’s role in resolving the Libyan crisis. In that interview, Libyan Prime Minister mentioned the possibility of Russia acting as an intermediary between the Tripoli government and political factions in eastern Libya.

21.02.2017 - Embassy comment on Russia’s decision to recognize the validity of documents issued by the de-facto authorities in Donetsk and Lugansk

The decision to accept ID’s and other documents issued by the de-facto authorities in Donetsk and Lugansk (East Ukraine) does not imply Russia’s legal recognition of the said authorities.

21.02.2017 - Security Council Press Statement on Passing Away of Ambassador Vitaly Churkin

The members of the Security Council were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, prominent Russian diplomat and Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations on 20 February 2017.

21.02.2017 - Remembering Ambassador Churkin (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

Work in New York, at a mission to the United Nations differs a lot from any Embassy. Especially so for a mission of a nation-permanent member of the Security Council. The last ten years, when Vitaly Churkin represented Russia at the UN, undoubtedly where the most busy and strenuous, given the War in Iraq, intervention in Libya, the crises in Syria and Ukraine. On all these issues there were serious differences between major powers, which increased demand for multilateral diplomacy. On many occasions those were non-stop, marathon sessions aimed at reaching consensus, finding some common ground as a basis for international action.

20.02.2017 - Sergey Lavrov’s answer to a media question on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, February 18, 2017

Question: How do you feel about the questions? Were they easy, as usual? Sergey Lavrov: They were predictable, given our Western colleagues’ fixation on seeing Russia as the only party responsible for the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis. Their fixation on this cybersecurity and cyber espionage agenda is equally and utterly incomprehensible. Not a single fact implicating Russia has been cited in the presence of a number of facts pointing in a different direction towards the real source of this unlawful activity. We are doing our best to make our position clear.

20.02.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to media questions following a G20 ministerial meeting and the Munich Security Conference, Munich, February 18, 2017

Our meetings in Germany are almost over. We spent a day and a half in Bonn and two days in Munich, at a meeting of the G20 foreign ministers in Bonn and the annual international security conference in Munich, which is nearing completion. You attended my speech there, and today I am ready to answer your questions if you have any.

18.02.2017 - Global riot and global order. Revolutionary situation in the world and what to do about it - report by Valdai discussion club

(Report in Russian, English version to be published shortly) Спустя много лет после студенческих волнений, которые охватили практически весь мир в 1968 году, активист тогдашнего движения Даниэль Кон-Бендит так вспоминал суть происходившего: «Это было восстание поколения, родившегося после Второй мировой войны, против общества, которое военное поколение построило после 1945 года». Бунт проявлялся по-разному– в зависимости от места действия. В Варшаве и Праге люди протестовали против коммунистического режима, в Париже и Франкфурте клеймил и буржуазно-консервативное засилье, в Сан-Франциско и Нью-Йорке возмущались милитаризмом и неравноправием, а в Исламабаде и Стамбуле отвергали власть военных. Всех объединяло нежелание житьпо-старому.«Мы были первым медиапоколением. СМИ играли большую роль, потому что они передавали искру жгучего неприятия, и она воспламеняла одну страну за другой», – вспоминал Кон-Бендит.

17.02.2017 - Concept paper on the Joint Group (Agreed on as the outcome of the International Meeting on Syria in Astana, February 16. 2017)

The Islamic Republic of Iran, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Turkey (hereinafter – the Parties) pursuant to the Joint Statement on the International Meeting on Syria in Astana (January 23-24, 2017, Kazakhstan) decide to establish the Joint Group as part of a trilateral mechanism to observe and ensure foil compliance with the ceasefire regime in the Syrian Arab Republic; prevent provocations; determine all modalities of the ceasefire, including separating terrorist groups ISIL/DAESH and "Al-Nusra Front" from the armed opposition groups in order to consolidate the ceasefire regime; strengthen confidence-building measures and discuss other related issues that can contribute to the UN-sponsored intra-Syrian negotiations on a political solution based on UN Security Council resolution 2254.

17.02.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s comment and answers to media questions following talks with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Bonn, February 16, 2017

We have held a meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. It was a pragmatic and business-like meeting, which I would describe as productive in that we compared our views on prospects for working together in the areas which our presidents discussed in principle during their telephone conversation on January 28. We reaffirmed the existence of similar or identical interests, primarily with regard to the irreconcilable struggle against terrorism in the context of our cooperation within the political settlement in Syria and other countries where terrorism has taken root. We also discussed the situation in Afghanistan and Ukraine. Our American partners have expressed interest in joining the efforts that are being taken to settle these conflicts.

17.02.2017 - Embassy comment on BBC Two film

The film “Russia’s Hooligan Army” shot and broadcast by BBC Two with Russia-hosted 2018 FIFA World Cup in mind is quite shocking. One gets the impression that its goal is to sow fear in British society and warn the fans against travelling to Russia. Based on edited footage of football fans’ clashes in Marseille and violent Russian fans, the filmmakers from the government-funded channel did their best to discredit Russia and the forthcoming World Cup.
