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.

05.04.2019 - Embassy’s comment on the 70th Anniversary of NATO

The UK Government and media have been providing their assessments of the role of NATO in the European affairs. They regard the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as “the most successful alliance in history”. But let us have a closer look at the facts. After the Cold War (and 30 years have passed since) the Alliance was looking for its “raison d’etre”. NATO operations in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Libya have destabilised those countries for a long time, causing numerous civilian casualties and dealing a severe blow to the basic norms of the international law.


04.04.2019 - Comment by the Information and Press Department on the 70th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation

The North Atlantic Treaty, which led to the establishment of NATO, was signed on April 4 seventy years ago. On this occasion, the North Atlantic Council held a meeting of the member states’ foreign ministers in Washington on April 3−4. The agenda of the meeting and the decisions taken at it by the North Atlantic Council show that the alliance is not going to stop building up its military and political confrontation with Russia. The bloc’s key goal – to rally its allies for containing “the threat from the East” – has not changed since its establishment in 1949.
