27.10.2011 - LondonCyber: on the ways to counter treats posed to cybersecurity - article by Alexander Yakovenko, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the UK.

The London conference is a good occasion to discuss emerging opportunities in cooperation in the domain of information security. Firstly, that is prevention of hostile use of information and telecommunication technologies for politico-military or terrorist goals. Countering cybercrime, establishing conditions for further intensive development of cross-border information cooperation, as well as ensuring free dissemination of information in the global cyberspace are some of those.

25.10.2011 - Bending the rules is not the way to resolve conflict – article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko published on 25 October 2011 in the Daily Telegraph supplement

More than 20 years have passed since the end of the Cold War, when Moscow and Washington often negotiated directly with each other. Whenever they failed to agree, the UN was brought in – but back then, that was not much help either.

17.10.2011 - Remarks by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at a reception at the Embassy of the Russian Federation 17 October, 2011

I am glad to welcome the connoisseurs and devotees of art who have gathered here today. Every year we play host to members of the Hermitage Foundation UK, but this reception is a special one. It unveils a newly discovered album of designs produced by the atelier of the iconic jeweler Karl Faberge.

14.10.2011 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko’s talking points at “Digital Barbecue” on 13 October 2011

Dear friends, I’m happy to welcome you at our Embassy. To my best knowledge, this is the first time such a meeting of social media activists and experts takes place in this house since in was built in 1852 (by the way, the year when Ada Lovelace, Britain’s and world’s first computer programmer, died). As we have followed your responses to our invitation, we saw that at least some of you accepted it out of curiosity, which compels me to answer the inevitable questions – why now and why here?

13.10.2011 - Litvinenko inquest (letter published in The Daily Telegraph, 13 October 2011)

SIR – Peter Oborne (Comment, October 12) claims that an open inquest into Alexander Litvinenko’s death would embarrass the Russians and the Foreign Office. Just the opposite: we believe that an open hearing of this case is necessary to establish the truth, as we officially requested in the embassy’s note to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Proceedings behind closed doors, as may be the case at St Pancras coroner’s court, do not add to the impartiality of this investigation.

07.10.2011 - Eurasian integration explained – an article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko published in “BSR-Russia”

A few days ago Prime Minister Vladimir Putin published an article on integration of the post-Soviet states under the title “A new integration project for Eurasia: a future in the making” (full text available at http://rusemb.org.uk/press/246). This article has received comments by a number of British media outlets, though not all the critics seem to have read it. Which is why I feel it necessary to underline its main points.<

03.10.2011 - Letter to Editor in Chief of the Sunday Times on Litvinenko case

Dear Sir, I would like to comment on the facts alleged in the 2 October article “Russia murdered Litvinenko, says top prosecutor”. Firstly, the statement that Mr Litvinenko had been murdered in a “state directed execution orchestrated by Russia” has not been supported by evidence. We are sure that such evidence has never existed. Otherwise, it would have been presented to us.

29.09.2011 - Speech by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at the presentation of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), 29 September 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am glad to welcome you at the Royal Society of Chemistry, and today I would like to introduce to you Egor Borisov, President of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), and his delegation who for the first time in Great Britain will make a presentation of Yakutia and speak about its truly enormous international investment opportunities. This is the first one of a series of meetings with the heads of leading Russian regions due to take place in the months to come and I am glad that Yakutia is to initiate this program in London.

27.09.2011 - United by our past, we will tackle the future together – Article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko for the Daily Telegraph supplement “Russia Now”

The relationship between our countries originated in hard times for both Russia and Great Britain during the rule of Ivan the Terrible and Mary I. That time happened to be bloody for the two countries in their own ways.
