11.09.2017 - Facebook statement on fighting fake accounts

We were pleased to hear about the statement by Facebook’s Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos made on 6 September. It states that an investigation conducted by the website’s administration identified a group of 470 fake accounts, which spent about $100,000 to promote their Facebook posts in 2015-2016.


11.09.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at a meeting with Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Al Safadi, Amman, September 11, 2017

We started our discussions yesterday, they were very friendly and open, as it should be between friends. The relationships are very solid; they are based on mutual trust, on the very good understanding between His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan and the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. And I will convey best wishes to His Majesty from the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin as we meet with him today.


09.09.2017 - Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, September 8, 2017

We have also taken note that the press service of the US State Department has repeatedly said that the only aim the US really seeks is to establish normal relations with Russia and, of course normalisation of the whole range of bilateral ties and contacts. How does everything that is happening on the territory of the Russian Federation building, which used to house the Russian General Consulate in San Francisco, contribute to normalising the situation? Why are people whom we do not know and whom no one has invited there engaged in who knows what? Do they also “contribute to the normalisation of bilateral relations”? Who sent them there? For what purpose? What are they doing there? Why do they feel like they can make themselves at home there? It is the property of the Russian Federation. What are US citizens doing there?


08.09.2017 - Press release on Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov’s meeting with Edmond Mulet, Head of the Leadership Panel of the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism on the use of chemicals as weapons in Syria

On September 7, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov met with Edmond Mulet, Head of the Leadership Panel of the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) on the use of chemicals as weapons in Syria , now in Moscow in connection with expert consultations on the investigation of alleged chemical attacks in the Syrian communities of Ma'arat Umm Hawsh (September 16, 2016) and Khan Shaykhun (April 4, 2017).


07.09.2017 - Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova’s comment on the seizure of Russian diplomatic buildings by US authorities

We have taken note of the awkward attempts by US representatives to justify the unceremonious decision to seize Russian diplomatic property on September 2 in an attempt to give them the appearance of "legitimacy." However, there can be no justification for such outrageous actions.


06.09.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at a meeting with Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, Vladivostok, September 5, 2017

We have things to discuss, primarily from the point of view of implementing the agreements reached during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to St Petersburg between July 1-3 of this year and the recent contacts between our leaders in Xiamen on the sidelines of the BRICS summit. I am really interested in considering today the further promotion of our bilateral agenda as well as joint work concerning international issues in the context of the special, privileged strategic partnership between the Russian Federation and India.


05.09.2017 - Vladimir Putin’s news conference following BRICS Summit

I believe that the presence of UN peacekeepers, not even peacekeepers, but those who provide security for the OSCE mission, is quite appropriate and I do not see anything wrong with that; on the contrary, I believe that this would help resolve the situation in southeastern Ukraine. Of course, we can talk only about ensuring the security of the OSCE staff. This is my first point.


04.09.2017 - Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation

We express our deep concern at test of a “thermonuclear explosive device for an intercontinental ballistic missile” announced by the DPRK on September 3.


04.09.2017 - Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation

On September 2, US authorities seized the buildings of the General Consulate of the Russian Federation in San Francisco and the Trade Representation in Washington, D.C., which are the property of Russia and have a diplomatic immunity. Russian representatives are also being denied access to the rented premises of the Trade Representation in New York.


01.09.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to questions at a meeting with the students and faculty of MGIMO University and the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Moscow, September 1, 2017

I am happy to welcome all of you to our meeting, traditionally held at the beginning of the academic year, including the students, faculty and management of MGIMO University and the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but primarily the first-year students. A new stage has begun in their adult lives. They have joined those who will devote their lives to international relations as diplomats, journalists, business people or other international affairs professionals. There are many professions that depend on the international factor.
