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.

20.05.2015 - Ambassador Yakovenko’s open letter to Max Hastings on VE Day

Dear Mr Hastings, I believe that any time is good for a reasoned debate, including on issues of history. Hope, that the end of the Cold War has not done for the need to discuss things, for there are always alternatives to choose from. As President Vladimir Putin made it abundantly clear in his talks with Secretary Kerry the other day in Sochi, Russia is always ready to discuss any issue in a constructive fashion.
