28.09.2016 - Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova's answer to a media question

Question: What can you say about the preliminary conclusions of the Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office? Maria Zakharova: Russia is disappointed that nothing has changed in the investigation into the Boeing crash. The conclusions reached by the Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office confirm that the investigation is biased and politically motivated. Arbitrarily laying blame and engaging in wishful thinking has become the norm for our Western colleagues. I would like to ask them: When will it be enough?

27.09.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s television interview for the Pozdnyakov programme on NTV, September 26, 2016

Question: Speaking at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council convened by the United States and some European countries, US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power accused Russia of “barbarism” in Syria. Are we again being accused of all sins? Sergey Lavrov: I think that’s the case, to a certain extent, all the more so since this meeting and the Western initiative to convene it as an emergency meeting on Sunday of all days, raises several questions. We dealt with this issue for the entire past week during high level debates at the UN General Assembly. As a rule, these debates concern various issues that are most urgent for UN member countries. Naturally, Syria prevailed at these debates. Syria was discussed at a fully-fledged ministerial meeting of the UN Security Council, and two sessions of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG), which US Secretary of State John Kerry, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, and I organised as the group’s co-chairs and which turned into an hours-long discussion. Naturally, delegations devoted the lion’s share of their attention to the Syrian crisis in their speeches and general debates.

26.09.2016 - Who is rattling “nuclear sabre” in Europe? (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

Some in the West have recently ratcheted up their rhetoric about Russia’s “nuclear sabre-rattling” in Europe. Indeed, the USSR did deploy nuclear weapons in the then countries of the Warsaw Treaty Organization. However, it was in response to the deployment of the similar US arms in the NATO countries, and later the Soviet nukes were completely withdrawn from Europe. Moreover, Russia has reduced its arsenal of non-strategic nuclear weapons (NSNW) by three-fourths, transferred them back home and stored within its own territory.

24.09.2016 - Why not give the Syrians a break? (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RBTH)

It was in the fertile soil of the ongoing civil conflict that ISIS expanded to Syria. Ever since, Russia has been urging the establishment of a common front of the international community against terrorists, including the al-Qaeda linked Jabhat al-Nusra, which despite its recent rebranding continues to be a terrorist organization. We agree on that with our U.S. partners, as testified to by the Lavrov-Kerry accords, reached in Geneva along the lines agreed by presidents Putin and Obama. Russia insists on declassifying this deal, so that there is not the slightest whiff of secret diplomacy about it. Terrorists played a key and leading role in the fight against government forces.

24.09.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks at the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, New York, September 23, 2016

A year ago, from the same rostrum at the anniversary session of the UN General Assembly, plenty of accurate assessments were made of the situation at this crucial stage of international development. The main theme was the recognition that humankind, in transitioning from a bipolar and unipolar international order to an objectively evolving polycentric, democratic system of international relations, is faced with challenges and threats that are common to all and that can only be overcome by joint efforts. It was rightly noted that there is a pressing need to change the philosophy governing relations between states and do away with attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of states and impose development models on countries and nations.
