It’s an honour for me to be here at the opening of this impressive exhibition.

07.02.2017 - Comment by Russian Embassy spokesperson

Question: On 5 February the Sunday Times published an article calling on British companies to withdraw their advertising from the Russian channel RT. Please comment on this call. Answer: Such a call from the Sunday Times is no wonder, especially after Defence Secretary Michael Fallon’s recent speech. Of course we understand that not everyone in UK is happy about the popularity of the Russian channel and the alternative worldview it represents. But this shouldn’t be a reason for a blatant crusade against the channel in such a foul fashion.

06.02.2017 - Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, February 3, 2017

On February 10, the Russian Foreign Ministry will mark Diplomats’ Day, which was established by Russian Presidential Executive Order No. 1279 of October 31, 2002. This holiday unites staff members of the central administrative office of the Foreign Ministry, foreign missions and representative offices in the Russian Federation’s regions. Every day, Russian diplomats solve issues related to securing the interests of our country and its citizens in the international arena, seeking solutions to conflicts and crises and responding to the global challenges of today’s world. Russian diplomats will celebrate their professional day at work, reviewing the intermediate results of their activities and analysing the goals set to them by their leadership. International relations, sadly, remain strained and global challenges remain acute. Competition in all areas is increasing at a turning point of global development. Hotbeds of conflicts are merging into large zones of instability. There is a growing gap between levels of welfare of different countries and regions, and cultural and civilisational contradictions are growing.
