25.01.2017 - Finally there is hope for peace in Syria. Now let's concentrate on fighting Isil (article by Ambassador Yakovenko in The Daily Telegraph, 25 January 2017)

For almost a year and a half, as the British government and media were accusing Russia of pursuing a military solution in Syria, we have patiently said that fighting terrorists complements the peace process. Their presence is a foreign intervention, which distorts everything. Not always was our voice heard, but today facts on the ground prove us to be right, and hope for peace is palpable.

Thank you for inviting me to speak as part of the Government Hour in the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation. The Foreign Ministry appreciates the interest you take in foreign policy matters. We have always viewed parliamentary diplomacy as an important and effective asset for implementing Russia’s foreign policy, enhancing trust and mutual understanding in international affairs. The Foreign Ministry is interested in stepping up cooperation with the Federal Assembly.

20.01.2017 - Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, January 19, 2017

The ceasefire in Syria, which was introduced on December 30, 2016 with input from Russia and Turkey, is generally holding across the country. Violations are localised and thoroughly dealt with by Russia and Turkey, which are the guarantors of the December 29, 2016 agreements. We note with satisfaction that since December 30, 2016, the level of violence in Syria has visibly declined and the humanitarian situation has improved. The efforts by the Russian centre for reconciliation of opposing sides have helped normalise the situation in the Wadi Barada area near Damascus. The ceasefire has been joined by nine towns in this district, from which 1,268 militants have withdrawn. Most of them have laid down their arms and returned to a peaceful life. The others will be given an opportunity to leave for Idlib with their families in accordance with the established arrangement.

19.01.2017 - LAVROV ON UK INTERFERENCE IN US ELECTIONS (meeting the press on 18 January, after talks with his Austrian counterpart Sebastian Kurz )

Perhaps it is time to admit that it was not Russia but US allies who grossly interfered in US internal affairs, in the election campaign. We noticed that Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, Theresa May, and other European leaders did so. Official representatives of some of the European countries did not mince words, and essentially “demonized” Donald Trump during the election campaign.
