13.05.2021 - Embassy Press Officer replies to a media question regarding the speech on the cyber security by the UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab

Question: Speaking at the National Cyber Security Centre’s CYBERUK conference on 12 May 2021, the UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said that ‘states like Russia’ have a responsibility to prosecute criminals operating from their territory, ‘not shelter them’. How would you comment on this? Answer: The Embassy has on multiple occasions commented unfounded accusations of numerous ‘sins’ in cyberspace made against our country. It is disappointing that the British authorities keep using Russia as a negative example, while having no actual grounds for this. Over the past few years we have repeatedly suggested to the UK, as well as to the USA and other countries, to develop professional cooperation to tackle the issues arising in this field... The UK prefers resounding speeches and vague ‘sheltering criminals’ insinuations.

Citizens of Russia, Dear veterans, Comrades soldiers and sailors, sergeants and warrant officers, midshipmen and sergeant majors, Comrades officers, generals and admirals, Happy Victory Day! The Victory had a colossal historic significance for the fate of the entire world. It is a holiday that has always been and will remain a sacred day for Russia, for our nation. It is our holiday by right, for we are blood relatives of those who defeated, crushed, destroyed Nazism. It is ours because we descend from the generation of victors, a generation we are proud of and hold in great honour.

Dear compatriots! I wish to congratulate everyone on the 76th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War! The historical significance of this event cannot be overstated. The foundations of the modern world order are rooted in our Victory over Nazism. The legacy of the Great Victory remains relevant to this day: Europe and the world free from Nazism were made possible by the incredible act of heroism of the Soviet soldiers and the peoples of our country. Let us not forget how, in the face of ordeals, the Allies have joined forces for the sake of peace and humanity.


05.05.2021 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s interview with the RT television channel, May 3, 2021

Question: What impact have the sanctions had on the state of relations between Russia and the West? Maria Zakharova: Unfortunately, the growing use of politically motivated, unilateral restrictive measures by a number of Western countries, primarily the United States, has become a reality of our time. We increasingly view the sanctions against Russia as a “gesture of despair” and a manifestation of the local elites’ inability to accept the new reality, abandon the stereotypes of their bloc-based thinking, and recognise Russia's right to independently determine its path of development and build relationships with its partners.
