EMBASSY INFORMS

23.04.2018 - Embassy’s press officer reply a media question on the establishment of a new cross-party group on Russia

Q: А new “powerful” cross-party group of senior MPs on Russia was set up in the British Parliament. It will reportedly help “defend Britain from Russia”. Can you comment on that?

21.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a question on air strikes against Syria

Q: A week has passed since the air strikes against Syria were launched. How do you assess political consequences of this step? A: We have already commented on international and legal aspects of this act of open aggression against Syria committed by the United States, together with the United Kingdom and France in gross violation of the UN Charter and fundamental principles of international law in general.

21.04.2018 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko's talking points at the Press Conference, 20 April 2018

Since we met last time a lot of events took place: - Military strikes of the United States, UK and France against Syria in violation of the international law - Mission by OPCW inspectors to Douma - Speech of Prime Minister May in Parliament in support of the British aggression against Syria - Special meeting of the OPCW Executive Council (18 April 2018) - New developments in the classified case of Salisbury poisoning of Skripal family - No meaningful developments on the Glushkov case - and Cyber security threats I plan to comment all these issues. And I will be happy to answer all our questions, if you have any.

20.04.2018 - Embassy’s press secretary response to a media question on the statements by Vladimir Uglev

Q: Can you comment on the recent statements by Mr Vladimir Uglev claiming to be a “Novichok” inventor and saying he is sure that A-234 was used to poison Sergei and Yulia Skripal?

20.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a question on Russia’s response to G7 statement on Skripals’ case

Q: How did Russia react to a recent statement of G7 foreign ministers accusing Russia of poisoning of Sergei Skripal and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury? A: We are disappointed by another groundless statement on Skripals’ case, this time made on behalf of all G7 members. It is regrettable that G7 members allow themselves to be drawn into an anti-Russian campaign built on hollow accusations.

18.04.2018 - Embassy press secretary answers media question on Ofcom investigations regarding RT

Q: Do you have a comment on the Ofcom statement regarding pressure on the channel RT? A: We have taken note of UK Government’s exercise of pressure on media, bordering on censorship, regarding the coverage of the Salisbury poisoning. In particular, the “Sunday Times” reported on 8 April that the National Security Council staff “had seized control” over the media response of the Salisbury incident. The media manipulation by the authorities is corroborated by multiple “leaks” of new versions of the incident which could not have appeared in any other way. Highly likely the apparent lack of interest from media outlets to gain access Sergei and Yulia Skripal, the doctors treating them and many other involved parties, in spite of evident public interest, testifies to the same.

18.04.2018 - Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov’s interview with TASS News Agency, April 15, 2018

Question: State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert claimed that Russia failed to live up to its 2013 commitments to assist in the elimination of chemical stockpiles in Syria. What is your comment? Sergey Ryabkov: The elimination process included close cooperation between the countries concerned, including the US, and went on under strict international control. At certain stages, Moscow and Washington were coordinating their moves in real time in the course of telephone conferences and continuous contact at various levels.

18.04.2018 - Press release on the creation of the National Association of International Information Security

In line with this trend, the National Association of International Information Security was set up in Russia on April 10, 2018.

17.04.2018 - Embassy press officer replies to a media question on a new version of poisoning in Salisbury

17.04.2018 - Embassy press officer replies to a media question on the British investigation of Nikolay Glushkov’s death

16.04.2018 - Embassy’s Press Officer reply to a question on thePrime Minister’s statement on the use of force in Syria
