21.06.2010 - JOINING FORCES FOR MODERNISATION AND SUSTAINABLE GROWTH (Article by Ambassador Yury Fedotov published in “First” magazine, June 2010)

The St.Petersburg International Economic Forum 2010 will be taking place at a crucial time for the global economy. The world is slowly and gradually coming out of the recession, the global economic forecasts for this year and onwards are being revised upwards and the emerging markets, including Russia, are arguably leading the way to a stronger growth.


15.06.2010 - Address by H.E. Mr. Yury Fedotov at the Presentation of the Order of Friendship to Mr Victor Hochhauser CBE and Mrs Lilian Hochhauser

Today is a very special day. We are here to present two famous British impresarios - spouses Victor and Lilian Hochhauser - with a Russian state award - The Order of Friendship - for their outstanding contribution to the development of Russian-British bilateral relations, which made our cultures closer to each other and mutually enriched them.


18.05.2010 - Address by the Ambassador of the Russian Federation H.E. Mr Yury Fedotov to the Southampton Chamber of Commerce

It is with great pleasure that I have come to Southampton and accepted your very kind invitation to speak about the current state of affairs and the prospects of the economic co-operation between Russia and the United Kingdom. Britain is one of the major trade and investment partners of Russia. Our economic co-operation is, so to say, natural, since it is guided by pragmatism and mutual benefits.


10.05.2010 - A Welcome Message from the President of the Russian Federation Mr Dmitry Medvedev for the Participants and Guests of the Gala Concert dedicated to the 65th Anniversary of Victory in the Second World War

I am happy to greet you at this remarkable event dedicated to the 65th Anniversary of the Great Victory. Victory over fascism was one of the greatest achievements of the XX century that changed the course of the world’s history and in many ways determined the further development of civilization. It was not only with the force of arms that our enemy was defeated in 1945. It was also due to the unity of the peoples of the anti-Hitler coalition and their striving to rid humanity of the threat of Nazism and consolidate humanist values.


10.05.2010 - A Welcome Message from the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Mr Vladimir Putin for the Participants and Guests of the Gala Concert dedicated to the 65th Anniversary of Victory in the Second World War

Please accept my heartfelt greetings here in the Royal Albert Hall on the occasion of the gala concert dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the Great Victory.


09.05.2010 - Address by H.E. Mr Yury Fedotov at the Soviet War Memorial

Let me congratulate you on the sixty fifth anniversary of our Great Victory. This is a celebration of peace and triumph of justice, this is a day that marks the victory of good over evil and freedom over tyranny.


15.04.2010 - Ambassador Yury Fedotov’s letter published in The Times

Sir, I fully agree with Ben Macintyre’s call for a thorough and transparent investigation into the tragic death of President Kaczynski and the Polish delegation (Opinion, April 13). The Polish people have the right to know the full circumstances of this terrible accident.

23.03.2010 - HMS Belfast's extraordinary war service is recognised by Russia

FOR two years, HMS Belfast was part of the Arctic convoys that kept Russia supplied and able to fight with the Allies during the Second World War. Now Russia is repaying its debt by funding the restoration of the former Royal Navy cruiser (below) and honouring its surviving veteran sailors.


15.03.2010 - Address by the Ambassador of Russia H.E. Mr. Yury Fedotov at a Dinner dedicated to the forthcoming Vladivostok Tiger Forum, House of Lords

The Russian Government fully understands that at present the global tiger conservation situation can be described as catastrophic. According to the WWF, during the last 100 years the number of tigers in the world decreased by 25 times – from 100 thousands to 4 thousands - and still continues to fall. In some regions of the planet tigers have disappeared completely.
