31.07.2017 - Comment by the Information and Press Department on developments on the Korean Peninsula

The latest developments on the Korean Peninsula have become a matter of grave concern against the backdrop of yet another launch of a ballistic missile by the DPRK on July 28 in stark violation of UN Security Council resolutions. At the same time, the United States, the Republic of Korea and Japan have stepped up their military activity, as Washington carries on with its plans to deploy elements of its global missile defence system to the sub-region by installing them in South Korea.


31.07.2017 - The Main Naval Parade in St Petersburg

In accordance with the Presidential Executive Order of July 27, 2017, the Main Naval Parade was held for the first time in Russia’s modern history. The parade featured the passing of ships and a marine air force unit overflight. Sailors from the Baltic, Black Sea, Northern and Pacific fleets and the Caspian Flotilla participated in the parade.


30.07.2017 - Foreign Ministry’s statement

On July 27, the US Congress passed a new bill on tougher anti-Russia sanctions. This measure is further proof of the Unites States’ extremely hostile foreign policy. Hiding behind its own "exclusiveness", the United States arrogantly ignores the stances and interests of other countries.


30.07.2017 - Press release on Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov’s meeting with US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft

On July 28, the United States Ambassador to Russia John Tefft was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry, where he was handed the Foreign Ministry’s statement concerning Moscow’s decision with regard to the staff and facilities of US diplomatic missions.


30.07.2017 - Press release on Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson

On July 28, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.


28.07.2017 - Comment by the Information and Press Department on CNN videos about alleged Russian weapons deliveries to the Taliban

We have taken note of the CNN videos about alleged Russian weapons deliveries to the Taliban. It is impossible to take videos that show obsolete weapons of unidentifiable origin seriously. The weapons in question have no brand stamps or numbers. These are standard weapons that could be made anywhere. Everyone knows that these weapons were produced not only in Russia but also in other countries, including in Eastern Europe, from which the Americans transported large batches of these weapons to Afghanistan in the early 2000s.


27.07.2017 - Russian State Duma urges the European Parliaments to condemn destruction of WW2 memorials

The Embassy has forwarded to the British Parliament a message of the Russian State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation whereby it urges the European parliaments and parliamentary institutions to condemn the recent incidents of destruction and desecration of monuments and memorials in honour of soldiers of the Anti-Hitler Coalition in some Eastern European countries.

25.07.2017 - Press release on the delivery of humanitarian aid to Yemen

Between July 18 and 24, Russian humanitarian aid was delivered to the civilian population of Sana and Aden, respectively, in the Republic of Yemen. Aircraft belonging to the Emergency Ministry delivered over 40 tonnes of cargo, including large capacity tents plus food products. On July 19, 62 citizens of Russia and several other countries were brought back to Moscow by a return flight from the Yemeni capital.


25.07.2017 - Embassy comments on The Sunday Telegraph Christopher Booker’s piece on Dunkirk

It is preposterous to say that Russia would rather forget Dunkirk. We had a similar tragedy in the summer of 1941, and had no other option but keep on fighting. Russia was the means of last resort in dealing with that existential threat to European civilization.
