03.04.2019 - Article by Andrei Krutskikh, Ambassador at Large of the Russian Federation, Special Presidential Representative for international cooperation in information security, published in the Kommersant business daily on March 27, 2019

Against the backdrop of the habitual – even ritual – anti-Russia propaganda, some voices of reason have been heard lately among American experts. Of particular interest in this regard is the recent article by the Daily Beast titled "This Hotline Could Keep the U.S. and Russia from Cyberwar". No doubt, for the professionals who have closely followed the development of the situation this publication will hardly be an eye-opener. What is important is that the article openly admits that the absence of a depoliticized expert dialogue between Russia and the U.S. on international information security is not only a road to nowhere but also a dangerous course fraught with further misunderstanding and a risk of a large-scale conflict.

28.03.2019 - Welcoming remarks on behalf of H.E.Mr. Alexander Yakovenko Russian Ambassador to the UK at Airline Total Networking Conference (London, 27-28 March 2019)

28.03.2019 - Statement by Permanent Representative Vassily Nebenzia at the UN Security Council Meeting on Syria

Mr. President, We thank Under-Secretary-General Rosemary DiCarlo and Director of the OCHA Coordination Division Ramesh Rajasingham for the briefing. The development of the military and political situation in the Syrian Arab Republic has recently gone through drastic changes. The terrorist threat was suppressed at the major part of the country’s territory. As a result, the authority of the legal government was reinstalled. The violence level dropped significantly. Great efforts are taken in order to restore the devastated infrastructure and get the liberated areas back to normal life. Of course, it would be premature to say that it is the end of the Syrian conflict. There are many serious tasks to accomplish first. Above all, it is vital to set forth the intense activities in support of the efforts of Special Envoy G.Pedersen that would build up the momentum of the political settlement in Syria. The Astana ‘troika’ also facilitates the work of the Special Envoy and contributes to the developments on the political track.


26.03.2019 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at a meeting with the Board of Directors of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia, Moscow, March 26, 2019

Good afternoon, I am happy to welcome the representatives of American companies that are working in the Russian market and are involved directly in real, practical issues of bilateral cooperation. As I understand it, those present are members of the Board of Directors of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia from companies like Chevron, ExxonMobil, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson and American Express, to name a few. Along with your chamber, there are mechanisms for promoting cooperation like the US-Russia Business Council and the Russian-American Council for Business Cooperation. We note the proactive and coordinating role of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia and its President Alexis Rodzianko.


25.03.2019 - Comment by the Information and Press Department on the conclusions of the report on the alleged Russian interference in US elections

We have taken note of the summary of the main conclusions from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the “purity” of the 2016 US presidential election, submitted by the US Department of Justice. The main conclusion, which is that Donald Trump’s election staff did not conspire with Russia – was to be expected. It is surprising, though, that it took 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team of 40 FBI agents, intelligence forensic accountants, and other professional staff, issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses, nearly two years to come to this conclusion. In other words, it took huge efforts and, obviously, a great deal of the taxpayers’ money to overturn an obvious fabrication.


22.03.2019 - PHOTO: Reception at the Russian Embassy in honor of the Soviet War Memorial Trust

On 20 March 2019 the Russian Embassy hosted a reception in honor of the Soviet War Memorial Trust. Opened in 1999 the memorial is a unique monument, commemorated to the Soviet citizens, who died in World War II.


21.03.2019 - Introductory remarks by Lord West at the reception dedicated to Soviet War Memorial Trust, 20 March 2019

In 2005, as First Sea Lord, I had the great honour of being present in the ‘Hero City’ Murmansk on Victory Day, together with a party of over 300 British veterans, His Royal Highness the Duke of York, and the frigate HMS Sutherland. After a moving ceremony and parade in the city’s main square, I was invited to walk alongside the governor of the Murmansk Oblast and the Commander of the Northern Fleet at the head of a procession of veterans and citizens up to the huge statue of the soldier ‘Alyosha’ – the Monument to the Defenders of the Soviet Arctic – that stands on a high bluff overlooking the Kola Inlet, gazing across to the distant border with Norway that was protected with such determination and courage. There we laid wreaths to the fallen and remembered those who had died or been permanently affected by the terrible events of those years.


21.03.2019 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a media question regarding the reports of the incident with the Russian sailors in UK waters

Question: Does the Embassy have a statement to make regarding the Russian sailors who were found on an island in the Bristol Channel?


21.03.2019 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko's introductory remarks at the reception dedicated to Soviet War Memorial Trust, 20 March 2019

It’s a great pleasure for me to host this reception today! We dedicate the today’s event to our friends from the Soviet War Memorial Trust. Their enthusiasm and dedication made it possible, that a unique monument, commemorated to the sacrifice of 27 million lives by the citizens and armed forces of the former Soviet Union in its joint struggle with the Western Allies to defeat Nazism during World War II, became a focus of Victory Day events in London. Memorial work nowadays takes a special place in activities of Russian MFA, and WWII memory is, of course, a top priority here. Collecting the information about military memorials, arranging repairs where needed and monitoring their condition – all this is a significant part of the work of many Embassies around the world. Our Ministry has signed multiple agreements on cooperation with various organizations and charities working in this area, such as the Russian Heritage committee here in the UK.
