26.04.2019 - Joint Statement by Iran, Russia and Turkey on the International Meeting on Syria in the Astana format, Nur-Sultan, 26 April 2019

The Islamic Republic of Iran, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Turkey as guarantors of the Astana format: 1. Reaffirmed their strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter; 2. Highlighted that these principles should be universally respected and that no actions, no matter by whom they were undertaken, should undermine them. In this regard they strongly condemned the decision of the US Administration to recognize Israel`s sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, which constitutes a grave violation of international law, particularly the UN Security Council resolution 497, and threatens peace and security in the Middle East...

26.04.2019 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a media question concerning the statements of FCO Minister of State Sir Alan Duncan on Crimea

Question: How would you comment on the statement of Minister of State Sir Alan Duncan, who has yet again condemned the “illegal annexation” of the Crimean Peninsula and “a continued destabilization of Ukraine” by Russia? Answer: The statements made by the Minister of State are hardly a novelty and do not come as a surprise. We have to note that those claims fail to reflect the real state of affairs. The British government continues to show complete disrespect to the democratic choice of the Crimeans, made through a free expression of their will 5 years ago fully in line with international law. They voted with an overwhelming majority for a reunification of the peninsula with Russia, exercising their right to self-determination proclaimed in the UN Charter. Therefore they made a choice for peaceful and sustained development.

We have taken note of the statement by the Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, congratulating Volodymyr Zelenskiy on being elected President of Ukraine. In his statement Mr Hunt said the UK interest in supporting Ukraine was due to the country’s position “on the front-line of Russia’s challenge to the rules-based international system”. The Foreign Secretary also mentioned that Ukraine’s “stability is essential for Europe’s security”. “Cooperation on defence and security” was identified as the first among the areas of future cooperation between London and Kiev.

Novgorod, is one of the oldest cities in Russia with population around 230 thousand people.

Novgorod is also traditionally considered to be the cradle of Russian statehood.

18.04.2019 - Embassy Press Officer comments on media reports regarding children hospitalised and ducks killed as a result of the Salisbury incident

Question: How would you comment on the New York Times report, reprinted by British media, alleging that CIA Director Gina Haspel persuaded President Trump to take strong measures against Russia following the Salisbury incident by showing him photos of children exposed to chemical poisoning and those of ducks killed by nerve agent? Answer: As everyone else, we learned of the existence of such photos from the New York Times piece. The information on hospitalised children and killed ducks is surprising. The British authorities and media have indeed reported that some members of the public, including children, underwent medical checks as a precautionary measure. However, none of them had any signs of poisoning. Similarly, it has never been reported that ducks or any other animals were killed (apart from Mr Skripal’s pets, incinerated in the Porton Down laboratory for unknown reasons).
