American politicians, including former US President Barack Obama, are criticising Russia for insufficient efforts to counter the effects of climate change at the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. These groundless accusations are perplexing, to say the least. As distinct from the US, Russia holds a consistent position on climate change that does not change depending on the political environment. Russia’s measures are concrete and comprehensive.

10.10.2021 - Embassy comment on the article in ‘The Sun’ newspaper

We express our utter indignation at the article in ‘The Sun’ claiming that a ‘Russian spy’ was present at the recent Conservative Party Conference. This low-grade scoop is of no surprise though, as we got used to this kind of disinformation being produced by the British media.
