18.08.2017 - 72 UNGA: The UN must adopt new rules of behaviour in the information space

The efforts aimed at ensuring international information security with the UN playing the key role, should be focused on the prevention of conflicts in the information space caused by the use of ICTs as a tool to interference in domestic affairs as well as by terrorists and for other illegal purposes. They should also focus on the development and adoption of universal rules of responsible behaviour of States regarding in the sphere of ICTs.

18.08.2017 - Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, August 17, 2017

We are pleased to note the positive trends in the way the military and political situation in Syria is developing, the way the ceasefire regime is being strengthened and the de-escalation zones are beginning to function: in the southwest of the country, in Eastern Ghouta and in the north of Homs province.

17.08.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to media questions at a joint press conference following talks with Foreign Minister of Bolivia Fernando Huanacuni Mamani, Moscow, August 16, 2017

We discussed the state of our bilateral relations. We have a rich and multifaceted agenda. We noted the very good dynamics of the political dialogue, and the successful implementation of the agreements reached last year during the visit to Russia of Mr Mamani’s predecessor as foreign minister of Bolivia. Everything that the presidents discussed, and everything we agreed upon between our respective foreign, economic, and social ministries, as well as our companies, is being implemented at a fairly steady pace.

17.08.2017 - 72 UNGA: Human rights must be protected but not used a pretext to intervene in domestic affairs

The primary responsibility for the protection and promotion of human rights lies with the States, while the UN executive structures should play a supporting role. The key principle in this field is to ensure equal cooperation between States based on the primacy of international law, respect for sovereignty and sovereign equality of States.

16.08.2017 - Iran has the right to develop its missile programme (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

The launch by Iran on 27 July of the missile “Simurg” caused a lot of speculations and aimed at putting additional pressure on the country under the false pretext.

16.08.2017 - 72 UNGA: Afghanistan is a matter of primary concern

Russia supports efforts of the Government of Afghanistan to advance national reconciliation and dialogue with the armed opposition. We are deeply concerned over the rise of ISIS in the north of Afghanistan and over the risk of spread of terrorist activity to the Central Asia. We believe that the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) as well as enhanced regional cooperation will play a crucial role in the stabilization process. Moscow supports the work of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) which serves as the main coordinator of international civilian efforts in Afghanistan.

15.08.2017 - Embassy responds to Russian media question

Question: It looks like British media continue their policy of writing/saying either harsh criticism of Russia or nothing at all. And this in summer time, when journos like Ed Lucas, Luke Harding, Con Coughlin and Roger Boyes, who specialize in Russia-bashing, are away on holiday. At the same time it seems that the same attitude takes shape towards America, if we take Gideon Rachman’s article in today’s FT as example. What is your view of that?

15.08.2017 - 72 UNGA: We must help relaunch Israeli-Palestinian negotiations

There is a need to relaunch direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations on the Middle East settlement. We call on both sides to abstain from unilateral steps which undermine the chances of the two-State solution. Russia continues to contribute to the settlement both through bilateral channels and in the format of the Quartet of international mediators.

15.08.2017 - Press release on Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov’s meeting with Qadri Jamil, a leader of the Syrian opposition Popular Front for Change and Liberation and head of the Syrian opposition’s Moscow platform

On August 14, Russian Special Presidential Representative for the Middle East and Africa and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov received Qadri Jamil, a leader of the Syrian opposition Popular Front for Change and Liberation and head of the Syrian opposition’s Moscow platform.

15.08.2017 - Comment by the Information and Press Department on terrorist attack in Ouagadougou

On August 13, a group of armed individuals attacked visitors of a café in the centre of Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. According to local authorities, 17 people were killed and about ten wounded to varying degrees as a result of the terrorist attack.

14.08.2017 - Press release on Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s meeting with Libyan National Army Commander Khalifa Haftar

On August 14, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a meeting at the Foreign Ministry with Libyan National Army Commander Khalifa Haftar, who is paying a working visit to Moscow.

14.08.2017 - Comment by the Information and Press Department on terrorist attack in Ouagadougou

On August 13, a group of armed individuals attacked visitors of a café in the centre of Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. According to local authorities, 17 people were killed and about ten wounded to varying degrees as a result of the terrorist attack.

14.08.2017 - Russian Embassy’s comment on Malcolm Rifkind’s piece in The Times of 14 August 2017

We are not surprised by the former tory foreign and defense secretary’s attempt at finding some common ground between a post-Brexit Britain and the EU. But why at Russia’s expense?! Napoleon’s "nation of shopkeepers" and charges of "bloodymindedness" had nothing to do with Russia. And if all of history is taken into account, one could conclude that it was Russia’s participation in settlement of European quarrels, like two world wars, that ensured the right outcomes. WWI was a common failure of all European powers, with Russia the least interested party having suffered the most. As to WWII, it seems the West cannot disown Nazism enough.

14.08.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to questions at the Terra Scientia on Klyazma River National Educational Youth Forum, Vladimir Region, August 11, 2017

Thank you for such a warm welcome. I have been invited for the third time running. I am very pleased to receive these invitations because it is very important for international relations professionals to talk to young people who are interested in diverse issues. All the more so since this forum has gathered sociologists and political scientists – professions that are very closely intertwined and, I believe, necessary to figure out what life is about, including international life.

14.08.2017 - 72 UNGA : Only diplomatic settlement can bring peace to the Middle East and North Africa

We believe that there is no alternative to a diplomatic settlement of conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa. Collective counter-terrorism efforts in the region should go in parallel. Russia contributes to a peaceful settlement in Syria by supporting the inter-Syrian dialogue in Geneva. The future of the Syrian Government must be determined by Syrians themselves, while maintaining public administration and secular and multicultural nature of the Syrian State. It is critically important to continue the Astana process aimed at de-escalation and promotion of political settlement. We oppose any attempts to politicize the humanitarian issues, blaming only the Syrian Government for the situation in the country.
