06.12.2021 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to media questions at the news conference following Russia-India foreign and defence minister talks in the two-plus-two format, New Delhi, December 6, 2021

We completed the first part of our preparations for President of Russia Vladimir Putin’s visit to India and his talks with Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi. I had a bilateral meeting with my Indian colleague, Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishankar. We discussed the main items on our agenda: the economy, hydrocarbons and energy, including nuclear power. We have promising and specific plans. We talked about holding a regular meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission on Trade, Economic, Scientific, Technical and Cultural Cooperation. Mr Jaishankar co-chairs this together with Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov. We discussed education and scientific exchanges and cultural ties. We have a fairly busy agenda.


04.12.2021 - Р5 Conference Paris, 2-3 December, 2021 FINAL Joint communique

1. Representatives from the five Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Nuclear Weapon States (NWS), or “P5", met in Paris on 2-3 December 2021 for the 10th P5 Conference, to discuss the preparations for the upcoming 10th NPT Review Conference and related matters.


01.12.2021 - Foreign Ministry statement on the planned US “summit for democracy”, November 30, 2021

In connection with the so-called summit for democracy to be held on December 9-10 at the initiative of the US administration, we consider it necessary to make the following statement. The organisers and enthusiasts behind this strange event claim to lead the world in advancing the cause of democracy and human rights. However, the track record and reputation of the United States, Great Britain, and the EU member states in terms of respecting democratic rights and freedoms at home, as well as in the international arena, are, to put it mildly, far from ideal. The evidence suggests that the United States and its allies cannot and should not claim the status of a “beacon” of democracy, since they themselves have chronic problems with freedom of speech, election administration, corruption and human rights.


24.11.2021 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks at the meeting of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs “International agenda of Russian businesses: Challenges, risks and cooperation strategies with the state,” Moscow, November 23, 2021

The Russian Foreign Ministry has always proceeded and continues to proceed from the premise that our work and that of other government structures must be in harmony with the efforts of business associations, the main participants in foreign economic activity. Together this should enhance the competitiveness of Russian companies, expand their opportunities abroad and help protect their lawful interests. This is one of the priority goals of Russian diplomacy. It is set forth in the Concept of Foreign Policy approved by the President of Russia. A new version of this concept is being drafted now, and this goal will be expressed even more prominently.


19.11.2021 - Embassy comment on the Home Office announcing a public inquiry into the death of Dawn Sturgess

The announcement by the Home Secretary Priti Patel of a public inquiry into the death of Dawn Sturgess in 2018 to be established by the government came as no surprise to us. This is the turn of events we have predicted earlier having taken into account what we observe in the UK, including the bellicose mood of the British establishment. It confirms our earlier assumption that the situation around Salisbury and Amesbury ‘poisonings’ and the tragic death of Dawn Sturgess would develop in accordance with the painfully familiar Litvinenko Case playbook. As the Home Office statement demonstrates now, London doesn’t conceal it anymore.


18.11.2021 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on NATO Secretary General’s comments on Russia, November 17, 2021

NATO continues its propaganda efforts targeting people in European countries as it tries to convince them that Russia and its “aggressive” behaviour are the source of instability on the continent. Recently, the NATO Secretary General used a meeting of the 73rd session of the Nordic Council to repeat accusations that our country has interfered in other states’ affairs, which has become a bad habit of his. As usual, he did not provide any evidence. He just used stock phrases and clichés to advocate stepping up NATO activities in northern latitudes, drawing Finland and Sweden into the process of militarising the Arctic and turning it into a space for geopolitical competition rather an area of cooperation.


18.11.2021 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Anti-Russia statements by British Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss, November 17, 2021

We noted the anti-Russia statements by British Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss, which were published by The Sunday Telegraph. She tried to pin the migration crisis on the Belarus-Poland border on Russia and urged European countries to oppose the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project in a united front.


18.11.2021 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Signing of a British-Ukrainian agreement on building up military cooperation, November 17, 2021

It was announced on November 13 of this year that Britain and Ukraine signed an intergovernmental framework agreement on naval cooperation, which provides for the allocation to Kiev of a 10-year 1.7 billion-pound-sterling loan. These funds are supposed to be spent on purchasing or building ships and the construction of naval bases for the Ukrainian Navy in Ochakovo and Berdyansk. This is the legal formalisation of the bilateral accords on military and defence industry cooperation following the visit of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to the United Kingdom in 2020.


17.11.2021 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on aspects of the space activities of Russia and other states, November 16, 2021

In light of the numerous media inquiries we have received, it is necessary to provide some clarification regarding the Defence Ministry’s successful test on November 15 of this year. The test resulted in the destruction of the inactive Russian satellite Tselina-D that had been in orbit since 1982. The test was conducted in strict conformity with international law, including the 1967 Outer Space Treaty and was not directed against anyone.
