14.07.2022 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s answer to a media question on British Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss’ anti-Russia rhetoric

This collection of empty slogans vocalised by a raging Truss clearly shows that, in fact, she is either unable to spot the serious crisis in the economy and in domestic politics in a country whose government she is striving to lead, or she simply does not know how to overcome it and is trying to distract voters. Clearly, the well-being and living standards of ordinary Brits are not among her priorities.

14.07.2022 - Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s response to a media question on the European Commission’s clarification on Kaliningrad transit

We are attentively studying the European Commission’s explanations and are analysing them in the context of our priority goal – comprehensive life support for the Kaliningrad Region. The decision that lifts the restrictions on certain types of goods carried by rail is a sign of realism and common sense. That said, we still have some questions on the content of this document.

11.07.2022 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s statement and answers to media questions following the G20 Foreign Ministers Meeting in Denpasar, July 8, 2022

We drew attention to the developments in the Black Sea. If the West is so eager to export Ukrainian grain, all they need to do is to make Kiev de-mine the Black Sea ports and allow ships to pass through Ukraine’s territorial waters. At sea, Russia, with Turkey’s support, is ready to secure safe passage for such convoys up to the Bosporus Strait and further to the Mediterranean Sea and consumer markets.

08.07.2022 - Remarks by Ambassador-at-large Gennady Askaldovich, Special Representative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation for Cooperation on Freedom of Religion, regarding the International Ministerial Conference on Freedom of Religion or Belief 2022 (London)

Ms Truss speaks of some "heinous crimes committed by Russian troops," claiming that Russia imagines itself to be the one waging a "holy war". Let me clarify for the benefit of Ms Truss that Russia is pursuing a just cause in Ukraine, fighting to liberate it from Bandera's brand of Nazism. A recent development proves the point: look at the joy and gratitude of Lysychansk inhabitants as they were greeting our troops. They were greeting them as liberators!

07.07.2022 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s statement and answers to media questions following talks with Foreign Minister of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam Bui Thanh Son, Hanoi, July 6, 2022

Regarding the agenda, we discussed everything, including the situation which derived from the Western policy to create a threat to the Russian Federation on Ukrainian soil and to support neo-Nazi policies of the regime in Kiev, and the policies which are openly Russophobic.

06.07.2022 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on the regular report by the Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine

We believe the drafting of this document is beyond the HRMMU’s mandate because neither the UN Human Rights Council, nor the UN General Assembly instructed this monitoring mission to report on this issue. We consider untenable its references to the resolutions adopted by the HRC and the UN General Assembly at the prompting of Kiev and its Western patrons to justify this “study.”

06.07.2022 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at a joint news conference following talks with Foreign Minister of Mongolia Battsetseg Batmunkh, Ulaanbaatar, July 5, 2022

We agreed to continue coordinating our activity in the UN, OSCE and multilateral platforms in the Asia-Pacific region. We also touched upon a range of issues related to expanding cooperation between Mongolia and the SCO, EAEU and CSTO.

30.06.2022 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s comment for the Belarusian media following talks with President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, Minsk, June 30, 2022

Russia and Belarus will take a firm stand to ensure that their security interests are respected as NATO continues to act quite aggressively. We always seek dialogue and support decisions ensuring equality and a balance of interests.

30.06.2022 - Press release on UK ambassador to Russia Deborah Bronnert being summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry

On June 30, UK Ambassador to Russia Deborah Bronnert was summoned to the Foreign Ministry. She received a strong protest in response to the overtly inappropriate statements by UK leaders as regards Russia, its leader, government officials and the Russian people.

30.06.2022 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s video address to the organisers of and participants in the roundtable discussion dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the SCO Charter and the 15th anniversary of the SCO Treaty on Long-Term Good-Neighbourliness, Friendship and Cooperation, June 29, 2022

Russia’s foreign policy priorities include strengthening the SCO in a comprehensive way and promoting a meaningful dialogue and practical cooperation in the area of security, the economy, and humanitarian ties. We have consistently advocated greater coordination between the member states in international affairs and strengthening the impact of collaboration with observer states, dialogue partners, and interested multilateral organisations.
