29.11.2012 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko: History proves the need for collective leadership

Global development processes are going through a transition phase, and so are international relations. What we may be witnessing now is yet another change of epochs. This change also marks the completion of processes of various durations Р from the Cold War and its intellectual and geostrategic momentum to the 500-year long domination of the West in global politics, economics and finance.


29.11.2012 - Remarks by Ambassador Yakovenko at the meeting of the Scottish Parliament’s cross-party group on cooperation with Russia

Moving from the wider cooperation between Russia and the United Kingdom I'm glad to say that we always pay attention to promoting genuine and fruitful regional interaction. Given its cultural and economic resources and the long historical tradition of interchanges, Scotland is no doubt an important partner for us, and there is a massive potential for cooperation here.

26.11.2012 - Ambassador’s Notebook: Threat of Extremism - How Real in Europe?

Recently, I raised with the UK Foreign Office one of the most topical problems that modern societies face, namely the rise of ethnic hatred and racism. One could ask – why with the UK? But both in Europe and in other regions, we are witnessing the spread of various extremist groups and ideological movements, in particular neo-Nazis and “skinhead” groups, spreading xenophobia and turning it into a tool of populist politics, preaching simplistic cures to the complex problems of our time. In a number of countries public events are held to glorify the Nazis and neo-Nazism. Monuments and memorials in honor of former SS members are erected. Those who fought against the Allies, or who collaborated with the Nazis, are declared national liberation heroes.

We are dedicating this wreath laying ceremony to the memory of the members of the armed forces and civilians who fought heroically and died in the line of duty in the First and Second World Wars so that all succeeding generations will know how great the sacrifices and devotion of those heroes were, and how precious our freedom and peace are.

02.11.2012 - Russia must look east

30.10.2012 - Lets look forward to some big new contracts (Article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko published in the Russia Now supplement of The Daily Telegraph on 30 October 2012)

Relations between Russia and the United Kingdom are improving, albeit more slowly than one would have hoped. But we have been steadily moving towards what in diplomacy they call rapprochement. The Olympic Games in London this summer demonstrated this most vividly. We sincerely congratulate the British organisers on their splendid achievements and are looking forward to making use of this valuable experience and expertise in holding the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in 2014.
