17.10.2011 - Remarks by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at a reception at the Embassy of the Russian Federation 17 October, 2011

I am glad to welcome the connoisseurs and devotees of art who have gathered here today. Every year we play host to members of the Hermitage Foundation UK, but this reception is a special one. It unveils a newly discovered album of designs produced by the atelier of the iconic jeweler Karl Faberge.

14.10.2011 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko’s talking points at “Digital Barbecue” on 13 October 2011

Dear friends, I’m happy to welcome you at our Embassy. To my best knowledge, this is the first time such a meeting of social media activists and experts takes place in this house since in was built in 1852 (by the way, the year when Ada Lovelace, Britain’s and world’s first computer programmer, died). As we have followed your responses to our invitation, we saw that at least some of you accepted it out of curiosity, which compels me to answer the inevitable questions – why now and why here?

07.10.2011 - Eurasian integration explained – an article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko published in “BSR-Russia”

A few days ago Prime Minister Vladimir Putin published an article on integration of the post-Soviet states under the title “A new integration project for Eurasia: a future in the making” (full text available at http://rusemb.org.uk/press/246). This article has received comments by a number of British media outlets, though not all the critics seem to have read it. Which is why I feel it necessary to underline its main points.<

29.09.2011 - Speech by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at the presentation of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), 29 September 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am glad to welcome you at the Royal Society of Chemistry, and today I would like to introduce to you Egor Borisov, President of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), and his delegation who for the first time in Great Britain will make a presentation of Yakutia and speak about its truly enormous international investment opportunities. This is the first one of a series of meetings with the heads of leading Russian regions due to take place in the months to come and I am glad that Yakutia is to initiate this program in London.

27.09.2011 - United by our past, we will tackle the future together – Article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko for the Daily Telegraph supplement “Russia Now”

The relationship between our countries originated in hard times for both Russia and Great Britain during the rule of Ivan the Terrible and Mary I. That time happened to be bloody for the two countries in their own ways.

23.09.2011 - Interview of Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko to Interfax news agency

- Mr. Yakovenko, what has changed in the British-Russian relationship since David Cameron’s visit to Moscow?

22.09.2011 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko's Speech at a dinner with British and international investors, 20 September, 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am glad to welcome you in the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the United Kingdom. Our meeting today, the first one to be held in such a narrow and trusting composition, is held with the assistance of one of the leading Russian banks VTB Capital in the run-up to the yearly investment forum “Russia Calling” in Moscow on 5-7 October.

30.08.2011 - Article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko published on 30 August 2011 in the Daily Telegraph (Russia Now supplement)

Globalisation in general and the current crisis in particular show with great clarity that in the 21st-century, Russia and the UK have no reason to stand apart but, of course, a healthy competition remains.

11.08.2011 - Ambassador A.Yakovenko’s comments on Gideon Rachman’s article “Beware the guns of August” (Financial Times, 2 August)

With all my respect to the author, his as-a-matter-of-fact treatment of the events of August 2008 doesn’t seem fair to me. It simply ignores the fact established by the EU-mandated H.Tagliavini International fact-finding Mission, that it was the Georgian Government that launched a military operation against South Ossetia in the dead of night on 7 August 2008. It means, that our troops moved into the region in response to that action. So, and that is important for the theme of that article, it was not us who chose August for that crisis, quite cynically timed to the opening of the Olympics in China. As a matter of fact, back then, unlike now in respect of events in Syria, that attempt by Georgian authorities to suppress their own people with crude military force didn’t provoke outrage among our Western partners.

23.06.2011 - Speech by the Russian Ambassador A.Yakovenko at RBCC Business Forum “Russia – a wealth of opportunities”
