Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, It is with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation to speak about establishment of an international financial center in Russia at the annual forum “Russia Calling.

11.03.2011 - Address by H.E. Alexander Yakovenko on the occasion of the launch of the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking

At first glance, slavery seems a thing of the past. But for many people it’s still a horrifying reality. At this moment, men, women and children are being trafficked and exploited all over the world. It is impossible to measure the true scale of the problem, but it’s happening on every continent and in almost every country.

Ladies and gentlemen, I welcome the opportunity to speak at the London School of Economics, one of the most reputable British universities. Young people from many countries including Russia study here. This fact alone creates an outspoken atmosphere and promotes a broad and open-minded view, encourages to be socially active. The modern Russia is a country in transformation that leans on its own and the world experience. Russia strives to be a land of new opportunities that is open to partnership, trade, investments, civil society contacts and projects in all areas of public life.

27.01.2011 - Speech by Alexander Sternik, Charge d’Affaires a.i., at the wreath laying ceremony at the Soviet War Memorial in London Holocaust Memorial Day

20.01.2011 - "Nuremberg Trial - 65 years on" - Keynote speech by Alexander Sternik

Dear Guests, Thank you for coming to our Embassy today. These days the Nuremberg Trial, held 65 years ago, has drawn attention all around the world. In Nuremberg itself, a comprehensive museum of the trial opened in late November. However, no similar events seem to be planned in London. So we hope to somehow fill the gap. The British capital is indeed a very remarkable place in this sense, as it was in London where the Charter of the International War Crimes Tribunal was adopted in 1945. Furthermore, this building is an appropriate place for talking about Nuremberg, as since 1940 till 1948 it housed an MI-19 interrogation centre for German prisoners of war. One of them, according to reports, was Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s party deputy tried at Nuremberg. The Embassy moved in only several decades later. For your convenience we have compiled press reports about this building, called the London Cage during the war. Obviously the building has undergone renovation several times and it doesn’t look the way it was in 1940’s, so you will need imagination to feel the atmosphere.

09.12.2010 - Opening remarks by Alexander Sternik, Charge d’Affaires, during the meeting to look back on the year in Russia-UK relations

I would like to stick with tradition and say some words on what have been very positive 7 months for UK-Russia relations after what we can all agree has been a difficult period.

30.09.2010 - Address of Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of the Russian Federation Mr. Alexander Sternik at the Presentation of the “Anbaa Moscow” Newspaper

Today we are witnessing an important and, in many ways, symbolic event – the launch of the updated edition of The Moscow News in the Arabic language. We view it as part of a wider tendency – the development of dialogue between Russia and the Arab world that goes back many centuries. It is well known that the Soviet Union engaged in large-scale co-operation with Middle Eastern and North African states. Thousands of industrial facilities were built with USSR’s help, and many engineers, doctors, scientists and politicians warmly remember their yearsof study in our country. With the end of the Cold War and the abandonment of the ideological approach to foreign policy a lot has changed but, with that, new opportunities for co-operation have appeared and today we feel a big demand for our country’s presence in the Arab world. Russia is an important and respected participant of the peaceful process in the Middle East; our economic co-operation is also gaining momentum, our universities are open for students from Arab countries, the “Rusiya Al-Yaum” channel is running in the region and starting from today we have resumed publishing the “Anbaa Moscow”. In this respect, I would like to note that both these media projects are offsprings of a leading Russian news agency RIA-Novosti that has in recent years occupies an important niche in the Russian and global information market.
