15.04.2019 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a media question concerning appointment of honorary consuls of Russia in the UK

Question: According to reports, Duchess of Abercorn, who served as Russia’s Honorary Consul in Northern Ireland, deceased in December 2018. Are there any plans to appoint a new honorary consul in that region? Answer: The issue of appointing a new Honorary Consul in Northern Ireland, where neither the Embassy in London nor the Consulate General in Edinburgh can effectively exercise consular functions due to objective geographical reasons, is under consideration.


13.04.2019 - Comment by the Information and Press Department regarding the statement by UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt

We noted a Twitter post of April 10 by UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, stating that it’s been over a year since Russia used the lethal Novichok agent in Salisbury, yet London hears nothing but denials from Russia, which allegedly objected to Novichok being added to the list of substances controlled by the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). It gets more cynical as you read on: “If they love Novichok so much, other countries will rightly worry about the next Salisbury.”


12.04.2019 - Embassy comment on the state of the investigation into the death of Nikolay Glushkov

More than a year has passed since former Deputy Director General of Aeroflot Nikolay Glushkov, a national of the Russian Federation, mysteriously died in London. One would argue that the investigators have had plenty of time to present their lines of inquiry. However, the crime continues to be passed over in silence by law enforcement officials, politicians and the media.


12.04.2019 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova regarding WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's detention

Just now, we watched online as the British police detained WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. We noted that the operation was conducted in the office of the Ecuadorian diplomatic mission with the embassy’s approval. Judging from the format of the operation, a blatant and brutal neglect of the detainee’s human dignity took place. We hope that all Julian Assange’s rights will be observed.


12.04.2019 - Statement by Permanent Representative Vassily Nebenzia at the UN Security Council Meeting on Venezuela

We are both surprised and not at the convening of an emergency meeting on Venezuela, all the more with participation of the Vice-President of the United States, whom you are always glad to welcome in this room. It is a pity he did not want to listen to other Members of the Council share their views on the situation in Venezuela. Today we watch just another act in a multi-act drama that attempts to change the regime in Venezuela. The situation in Venezuela does not pose a threat to international peace and security, whereas external actors pose a direct threat to peace and security inside Venezuela. This is what we have just heard.
