16.03.2017 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova on the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights’ statement on Syria

It is regrettable that the Yemen conflict, as well as the situation in a number of other countries requiring urgent attention, in particular around Mosul in Iraq, for some reason drop off the high commissioner’s radar or are commented on indirectly. How is that for his so-called “objectivity”?

13.03.2017 - Comment by the Embassy Press attaché

The situation in Syria


It is reported, that Prime Minister Theresa May appointed “an anti-subversion minister” charged with “protection of integrity of UK democratic life”. The media, including The Sunday Times, also report on the warning issued by GCHQ/National Cybersecurity Centre (its director C.Martin) to the British political parties on presumed “Russian threat” of meddling in the next elections due in 2020. In fact, Russia is accused of conducting subversive activity against Britain. We absolutely cannot accept that. In that regard highly relevant are the words of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson that Britain has no evidence of Russia’s interference in the UK domestic affairs. And this is true.
