Russia values the level of dialogue our countries have reached.

17.04.2017 - Remarks by Russia’s Permanent Representative at the OPCW, Ambassador Alexander Shulgin, at the 54th Meeting of the OPCW Executive Council, The Hague, April 13, 2017

Being a responsible party to the CWC, the Russian Federation unconditionally condemns the use of chemical weapons by anyone anywhere. We strongly deny any accusations against Russia that it acted as an enabler in the tragic events in Syria or was even complicit in the perpetration of any crime using chemical weapons. This is a blatant falsehood.


17.04.2017 - Ambassador Yakovenko answers the Daily Mail questions (17 April 2017)

1. Theresa May said today (Thursday) that Russia was on the “wrong side of the argument” when it comes to Syria, what is your response to that? Answer: With all my respect for Prime Minister Theresa May I’ve got to say that the opposite is true. Even former British Ambassador in Damascus Peter Ford (on the BBC the other day) said that there is no moderate opposition alternative to the present government is Syria. That’s why there is urgent need for lasting ceasefire and political process among the Syrians, so that they can decide for themselves. It seems that our Western partners don’t like this approach and want to decide for the Syrians who will take part in the political process and who shall not. I think the reason is they know well what the choice of the Syrians is going to be after the 6 years of civil war.

12.04.2017 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko’s response to a media question

Question: Can you comment on skepticism that is being voiced by Western officials and media about Russia’s role in tackling terrorist threat in Syria? Yakovenko: Our Western colleagues regularly claim that Russia pursues in Syria goals other than fighting terrorists. Increasingly, it becomes fashionable in the West to blame Russia for everything, based on rumors, speculation and fake information. The same thing here. They prefer to ignore that fact that the Syrian army is the most effective force on the ground in fighting ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and their likes.
