30.08.2016 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova on the disruption of the UN humanitarian mission in Aleppo by Syrian opposition groups

We strongly condemn the radical Syrian opposition’s inhuman efforts to disrupt the planned UN humanitarian mission in Aleppo. At the last moment these jihadist members of the opposition began to add completely unacceptable and unrealistic conditions to their prior consent to allow a convoy of trucks with food for civilians to pass. This pointed challenge reveals the true character of these would-be defenders of the Syrian people, whose deplorable humanitarian conditions they are happy to exploit to achieve their own destructive goals.

29.08.2016 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova on the attack at the Russian Science and Culture Centre in Kiev

The Russian Science and Culture Centre in Kiev was attacked again in the early hours of August 27. A group of radical nationalists, in an obviously planned attack, seriously damaged the building. Aggressive young people who chanted nationalist and xenophobic slogans threw smoke grenades and wrote anti-Russian slogans on the walls before fleeing unimpeded from the scene.

29.08.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to media questions at a news conference following talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry, Geneva, August 26, 2016

I know that many placed bets on whether we would break a record for the length of our talks, but the Moscow record has not been beaten: we talked one hour less this time. I believe that we have made several major steps forward in addition to the agreements reached in Moscow, as Mr Kerry said. That we have not issued any documents does not mean that we have failed to find increasingly more points of contact.

25.08.2016 - Syrian settlement: setting the record straight (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

A grave humanitarian situation in Aleppo today is the most topical issue within the context of settlement in Syria. Over past two weeks, as the Syrian Government forces and Russian Air Force successfully resist the “Jabhat al-Nusra”-led offensive, there have been increased efforts by some media to distort the real situation in Aleppo. The terrorists, who seek to seize the whole city, are obviously not interested in a ceasefire and establishing humanitarian corridors for civilians caught up in the fighting. However, a large-scale humanitarian operation is under way, conducted by the Syrian Government with Russia’s assistance.

24.08.2016 - Sergey Lavrov’s answer to a question by the TASS News Agency

Question: Can you comment on the regular media reports about modern weapons making it into the hands of terrorist groups in the Middle East and North Africa? Sergey Lavrov: Apparently, our Western colleagues have yet to fully realise the implications of their recent military operations in the Middle East and Africa. They believed they would destroy the Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi regimes, and that democracy would instantly prevail in Iraq and Libya. Instead, these nations are now torn by chaos. Abandoned military depots and arsenals were looted. All weapons, including MANPADS, and hundreds of tonnes of ammunition, went missing. Now, those countries are shattered by fratricidal wars with no end in sight. Unfortunately, this situation was quite predictable, and the President repeatedly warned about it
