06.08.2015 - Eurasian Economic Union reaches out to South-East Asia (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

The development of regional economic integration is an objective process. In a globalizing and increasingly competitive international environment there is a strong trend towards creating and strengthening of regional cooperation. The state of crisis in global economic and financial system provides more incentives to cooperate so that collectively countries can efficiently respond to economic challenges and obtain real competitive advantages.


05.08.2015 - ISIS will be defeated if double standards are rejected (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

Important meetings on the situation in the Middle East, including Syria, Iraq and the fight against ISIS, have taken place in Doha, Qatar. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov discussed the situation with his counterparts from Qatar, as well as those from the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Oman. There took place a trilateral Russia-US-Saudi ministerial. Hopefully, this dialogue has contributed to better mutual understanding when it comes to the protracted crises in the Middle East.

For the first time in its 15-year history the decision was made to increase the number of members. The process of the accession of India and Pakistan was formally launched. It was decided to upgrade the status of Belarus to that of an observer.

31.07.2015 - MH17: who hampers the investigation (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

After the failure of the hastily arranged Security Council vote on a resolution that hadn't been properly debated, Russia is once again being accused of creating obstacles for justice for the victims of the MH17 disaster. These official statements and media coverage come as no surprise to us. However, let's face the facts. Russia was the first state to demand a full and independent investigation of this abhorrent crime. We did everything to ensure an early adoption of Security Council Resolution 2166 that not only insisted on a proper investigation, but also, at Russia's initiative, provided for an immediate ceasefire at the crash area. The Russian Defence Ministry has been the only one among its counterparts to publish its satellite data relevant for establishing the truth. We have declassified certain technical documentation related to the Buk missiles and provided the Netherlands with a thorough analysis of possible Buk involvement in the downing of the aircraft, performed by experts of the Almaz-Antey Corporation, the missiles' manufacturer.


27.07.2015 - MH-17 tradedy: the way to justice (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for London Evening Standart, full version)

298 persons lost their lives in the sky over Eastern Ukraine a year ago. The least the international community should do is to ensure that justice is done and is seen being done in this horrible incident. This matter is too serious to be used for propaganda purposes and political point-scoring. Security Council already passed its resolution 2166 on 21 July 2014 with Russia's active support. The key objective now is to make full use of its potential of insuring that the two investigations being conducted in the Netherlands are successfully concluded, and proceed in an impartial and transparent fashion.


18.07.2015 - Ambassador Yakovenko: Key points of the Russian position on MH-17 flight

We express our deepest condolences to the relatives of all 283 passengers and 15 crew members – victims of this dreadful tragedy.


15.07.2015 - Deal on Iranian nuclear programme: diplomacy at work (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

July 14 marks the end of the negotiating marathon in pursuit of a final settlement of the Iranian nuclear issue.


13.07.2015 - Why Russia launched New Technology Initiative (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

Rapid technological progress in the 21 century promotes global transformations and, among other things, shapes a new world order, where leadership belongs to countries that pursue an active scientific, technological and industrial policy. Russia is no exception here. President Vladimir Putin has set the task to elaborate an action plan to create radically new markets and set the stage for Russia’s global and technological leadership by 2035. It is key to solving such economic problems as stagnant productivity and demand.


11.07.2015 - Srebrenica: a tragedy against peace and reconciliation (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

On 8 July the UN Security Council discussed a draft resolution regarding the tragedy at Srebrenica, proposed by the UK. The Russian delegation voted against it while China, Angola, Nigeria and Venezuela abstained. As a result, the document was not adopted. We regret that the British delegation insisted on voting despite our repeated warnings, backed corroborated by concerns voiced by Balkan countries, about the possible consequences of adopting a document that could only provoke tensions. Rather than seeking national unity and reconciliation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the draft was politically motivated and unbalanced.
