27.07.2009 - Yury Fedotov’s interview with ITAR-TASS news agency (in Russian)

Корр: Юрий Викторович, как вы оцениваете минувшие события нынешнего года? Что запомнилось, какие события Вы могли бы выделить?

17.07.2009 - Ambassador Fedotov’s letter to The Economist

SIR – It is a shame that you continue to see Russia in such a negative light. It must also be baffling for your readers. Rather than being a country intent on reviving the hostility of the cold war, Russia’s government plays a positive role in world affairs.

04.06.2009 - Ambassador Fedotov’s address at the gala opening of the festival “Pushkin in Britain” (in Russian)

01.06.2009 - Future strength forged in crisis

Traditionally strong business ties between our countries are being tested today and should be viewed against the global context of the current economic crisis. The volumes of international trade and investments have substantially decreased over the recent months while the collapse of trust in the international financial system made investors and businesses worldwide more risk averse. Yet despite these unfavorable economic conditions which affected each and every country, I remain optimistic with relation to the prospects of our business partnership.

21.05.2009 - Lecture by the Ambassador of Russia H.E. Mr Yury Fedotov at the University of Bristol

As you know, the topic of my address today is “Russia’s place in the world and its stance on major international issues”, a topic one can discuss for hours on end, in fact, a topic so extensive that it is difficult to choose where to start. I thought that it would be best if I began with something positive and recent like the G20 London Summit.

18.05.2009 - Ambassador Fedotov’s letter sent to The Times editor (National security strategy of Russia)

Your editorial and world briefing (Thursday 14 May) badly misinterprets and exaggerates the Russian Government’s position on the Arctic. The national security strategy does not suggest, in any way, that Russia intends to pursue its territorial claims in the Arctic through military means. On the contrary, we have every confidence that the existing legal framework can settle the many disputes between countries not just in the Arctic but right across the world’s seas.

27.04.2009 - Ambassador Yury Fedotov’s speech at the Cardiff Business Club

It is with great pleasure that I have accepted the kind invitation from the Cardiff Business Club to join you for this lunch. As they say: breakfast first, business next. Therefore, our lunch has been served, and it was a good one, now is time for business. Yet I do not intend to burden you with a lengthy speech. I would rather very much welcome your ideas on the subject of how we could further build upon the economic co-operation between our two countries, facilitate more active engagement between Welsh businesses and Russian regions and companies.

29.03.2009 - President Dmitry Medvedev's interview with the BBC Andrew Marr Show

ANDREW MARR: Mr. President, thank you very much for coming here to give an interview to the BBC. First, I would like you to reflect on the overall economic situation. We are meeting today at the time of the global crisis. How did it affect Russia? What do you think is the most probable course of events in your country?
