30.03.2015 - US National Security Strategy – a blueprint for confrontation? (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

In February 2015 the National Security Strategy was adopted by the United States. It calls for containment of ”Russian aggression“, especially with regard to Ukraine.


One of the most important tasks in the field of international security is to free the world from the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction. Russia is constantly advocating for further limitations and reductions of nuclear weapons stockpiles along with strengthening international regimes of arms control and non-proliferation. One of the examples in the field of nuclear disarmament is the Russia-US new START Treaty, which entered into force in 2011. Under this Treaty, the sides committed themselves to limiting their nuclear arsenals by one third compared to the previous agreements.


On 5 March, the international community marked the 45th anniversary of the NPT entry into force.

Let me try to explain once again. It will be helpful to give some background to dispel the predictable doubts regarding the unprecedented unanimity of the popular vote.

13.03.2015 - THE FUTURE OF ARMS CONTROL IN EUROPE (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

For many years Russia has been undertaking every possible step to maintain a viability of the conventional arms control regime in Europe.


The Human Rights Council (HRC) is a leading human rights agency in the UN system. Russia believes that the HRC’s fundamental operating principle should be based on cooperation between states and respect for each other’s sovereignty and equality.

10.03.2015 - Protection of Christians in the Middle East must become an international priority (by Ambassador Yakovenko)
