01.04.2022 - Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation in response to EU sanctions

The EU policy of sanctions against Russia oversteps all limits. Following the launch of the special military operation in Ukraine Brussels is arbitrarily imposing unilateral restrictions against numerous Russian citizens and companies. Their personal data is being openly released in contravention of every international legal norm currently in force. Absurd and unlawful “criteria” are hastily being cooked up in order to add more names to the list.


31.03.2022 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s address at a plenary session of a meeting between Afghanistan’s neighbouring countries (Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan), Tunxi, March 31, 2022

Mr Chairman, Colleagues, friends, First of all, I would like to thank our Chinese hosts for organising a regular ministerial meeting of countries neighbouring on Afghanistan and events that are taking place and are scheduled to be held on the sidelines of this meeting. We consider this initiative to be highly relevant. It is necessary to coordinate our positions on the situation in Afghanistan in this format, so as to chart universal regional approaches towards that country’s post-conflict development.

A full round of talks was held with my colleague, Foreign Minister and member of the PRC State Council Wang Yi. We reviewed a range of items in our bilateral relations in accordance with the instructions agreed upon by the leaders ofRussia andChina, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. They were aimed at the all-round development of Russia-China relations and at building up our foreign policy coordination. I am content with these talks.


30.03.2022 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on US Senator Robert Menendez’s letter to IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi

On March 28, Chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Robert Menendez sent a letter to IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi in which he demanded that the head of this reputable international organisation take urgent steps (including in the UN Security Council) to prevent the subversion ofUkraine’s energy infrastructure by the Armed Forces of Russia. This is a most drastic example of interference in the affairs of the IAEA. Its charter clearly states that in performing his duties, the Director General cannot receive instructions from any source outside the agency. Moreover, each member “undertakes to respect the international character of the responsibilities of the Director General and the staff and shall not seek to influence them in the discharge of their duties.” Who, if not the head of the relevant Senate committee, should know this basic precept?


30.03.2022 - Embassy comment on a Daily Telegraph article of 29 March 2022

The Embassy cannot ignore the article by the Daily Telegraph published online under the despicable title: «British fighters savour victory in ‘Battle of Irpin’, as dogs devour bodies of defeated Russians».


26.03.2022 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s comment on the UN General Assembly vote on the French-Mexican draft resolution on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine

On March 24, the resumed 11th Emergency Special Session of the UN General Assembly voted for the French-Mexican resolution on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine. Despite its benign title, the document abounds in inappropriate, politicised language that is incompatible with the task of rendering coordinated, efficient aid to the country’s civilians.


26.03.2022 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s comment on the UN Security Council vote on the Russian draft resolution on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine

We express our gratitude to China, which voted in support of our project, as well as to the countries that co-sponsored this draft.
