20.12.2021 - Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov’s interview with Interfax News Agency, December 18, 2021

The security situation in Europe, the Euro-Atlantic region and Eurasia has indeed greatly deteriorated recently. This has happened because of a series of concerted actions by the United States and its NATO allies, which, generally speaking, can be described as an attempt to undermine Russia’s security and to create a hostile environment around us. We cannot accept this.


18.12.2021 - Press release on the outcome of the seventh round of negotiations to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)

On December 17, a meeting of the Joint Commission of the JCPOA closed the seventh round of Vienna talks on restoring the full implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal. The participants noted that significant progress had been made, which paved the way for the next stage. The delegations will hold further consultations in their capitals.


18.12.2021 - Foreign Ministry statement on the withdrawal of the Russian Federation from the Treaty on Open Skies

As of December 18, 2021, the Russian Federation is no longer a party to the Treaty on Open Skies (Treaty) and has consequently ceased to be a member of the group of States Parties stipulated in its provisions.


17.12.2021 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Russia’s reciprocal list of British citizens denied entry to the Russian Federation

We consider London’s latest unfounded anti-Russian attack to be practical confirmation of the British government’s intention to continue its destructive course in bilateral affairs. We are forced to state that the British authorities’ consistent efforts to ratchet up sanctions completely undermine Russia’s attempts at various levels to put interstate relations back on a constructive track.


17.12.2021 - Press release on Russian draft documents on legal security guarantees from the United States and NATO

During the December 15, 2021 meeting at the Russian Foreign Ministry, the US party received a draft treaty between the Russian Federation and the United States of America on security guarantees and an agreement on measures to ensure the security of the Russian Federation and member states of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).


16.12.2021 - Foreign Ministry Statement

The Russian side strongly believes that the guilty verdict brought in by the German court against the citizen of the Russian Federation Vadim Sokolov on December 15 in the case of the murder of Georgian citizen Zelimkhan Khangoshvili, former terrorist gang leader in the North Caucasus, in Berlin on August 23, 2019, is extremely biased and is clearly a case of an explicit political put-up job. We insist that the Russian citizen is innocent. He has the right to appeal to the Supreme Court of the Federal Republic of Germany against the unjust verdict.


14.12.2021 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s comments in response to the EU imposing another round of unilateral restrictive measures on Russian citizens and organisations

The EU continues to impose unilateral restrictions, which is illegitimate from the point of view of international law. More sanctions were imposed on eight Russian citizens and four organisations falsely accused of involvement in a private military company.

13.12.2021 - Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov’s interview with Izvestia, December 13, 2021

Question: Mr Ryabkov, is there any predictability in relations with the United States today? Sergey Ryabkov: There is one-sided negative predictability, in fact. As for any prospects for improvement, everything is completely unpredictable. This is a sad conclusion based on the results of the long journey that we have travelled with the current US administration, with Donald Trump, and with Barack Obama. These problems did not emerge yesterday. They have to do with the US tendency, by and large, to deny Russia the role of a major independent player in international relations while trying to impose its own approaches to a whole range of issues, including how we should live in our own country.


11.12.2021 - Embassy comment on a string of UK Foreign Secretary accusations

We took note of a number of social media statements by the UK Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss promoting her vision of the G7 Foreign Ministers meeting in Liverpool. The overuse of the term “Russian aggression” is particularly evident and deliberate, highlighting British G7 presidency’s obsession with finding a common cause for “a show of unity”. The repeated accusation itself is a cause for concern, as it misleads the followers.
