Your Excellencies, Military Attachés, Ladies and Gentlemen, Today it gives me a great pleasure to welcome you all at this reception. We celebrate the Day of the Russian Armed Forces – probably the most cost-effective military organization on this planet. At least that's what I see from the figures published by the very respectful IISS institution – Russia spends 46 bln. US dollars on defence, whereas UK – 52 bln. dollars, USA – an amazing 600+ bln. and all NATO countries combined – more than 1 trillion dollars. And still even with this absolutely disproportional defence spending Russia manages to maintain an Army which effectively fights terrorism in Syria, protects our borders and sovereignty at home.

27.02.2018 - Embassy's Comment on the Donbass reintegration law

Q.: How would you assess the absence of the official reaction of the UK as regards to the “Donbass reintegration law” that has entered into force? A.: We cannot speak for the British side, but the scandalous law on so-called “reintegration of Donbass” is a consequence of the destructive policy of the Ukrainian government over the past four years since the coup d’etat in February 2014. It is commonly known that the UK and other Western countries have been supporting for all these years the authorities in Ukraine by financing, delivering weapons and sending military advisers to train Ukrainian military. So it comes as no surprise that London keeps total silence on this issue.

23.02.2018 - Four years since the coup in Kiev: Embassy Press Officer on the article by Boris Johnson on Crimea

Yesterday, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson published an article entitled “Four years since the illegal annexation of Crimea”. It is a pity that it is not accompanied by a piece on the fourth anniversary of the coup d’état in Kiev that was backed by the UK and the West in general, and blatantly violated not only Ukraine’s Constitution, but also the agreement between President Yanukovych and the opposition mediated by Germany, France and Poland on 21 February 2014. It was precisely the forcible removal of the lawfully elected President that paved the way to power to the self-styled “government of winners”, a bizarre mix of pro-European liberals and far-right extremists, and triggered the sequence of events that resulted in Crimea re-joining Russia.
