11.03.2022 - National document of the Russian Federation circulated in the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the UN Security Council on 10 and 11 March 2022 “Regarding potential chemical provocations in Ukraine”

Radical Ukrainian groups under the control of the representatives of American special services have prepared several potential scenarios of the use of toxic chemicals in order to carry out various types of provocations. The objective of such actions is to accuse Russia of the use of chemical weapons against the civil population and violating its obligations, including those under the Chemical Weapons Convention (hereinafter “the Convention”). Several diversionary scenarios have been developed.

Statements of Ukrainian representatives on Russia’s opening of humanitarian corridors in Mariupol in order to «shell civilians fleeing the city» is beyond cynical. These dirty practices have been implemented by the Kiev regime.

10.03.2022 - Embassy comment on UK plans to send more lethal weapons to Ukraine, March 10, 2022

We are extremely concerned by the recent statements by Defence Secretary Ben Wallace of UK plans to increase its military support of Ukraine. This includes more lethal weapons’ supplies, namely, shipments of modern anti-aircraft missile systems Starstreak. This is an especially dangerous weapon, capable of hitting air targets at high altitude and with high precision. Its use will be a destabilising factor and will worsen the situation.

08.03.2022 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on military biological activity in Ukrainian biological laboratories

We confirm that, during the special military operation in Ukraine, the Kiev regime was found to have been concealing traces of a military biological programme implemented with funding from the United States Department of Defence. Documentation on the urgent eradication of highly hazardous pathogens of plague, anthrax, rabbit-fever, cholera and other lethal diseases on February 24 was received from employees of Ukrainian biolaboratories. This included an instruction from the Ministry of Health of Ukraine on the urgent eradication of stored reserves of highly hazardous pathogens sent to all biolaboratories. These materials can be found on the internet portal of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation.

07.03.2022 - Statement by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak March 07, 2022

Regrettably, we have seen the statement by European politicians on energy issues and calls to dump Russian oil and gas. European officials are once again trying to shift the problems and failures of their own energy policy of recent years onto Russia. The result is the spike in energy prices we are witnessing today. I can say with complete confidence that Russia has nothing to do with the current price spike and volatility in the market.

05.03.2022 - Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on the European Commission’s decision to suspend cooperation with Russia in cross-border and transnational cooperation programmes

The Commission also suspended cooperation with our Country in preparation of the new programmes for the period till 2027. However Russia has not yet received an official notification.

05.03.2022 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with TV channels RT, NBC News, ABC News, ITN, France 24 and the PRC Media Corporation, Moscow, March 3, 2022

Question:Unprecedented sanctions pressure is being exerted on the Russian Federation due to the recent events, primarily “on the ground.” Has Russia changed its position? Does the world hear what Russia is saying? What do you think about the ongoing talks in Belarus? What should we expect from the next round? Sergey Lavrov: This is a comprehensive question. You have touched on many issues. I am sure the world is listening to Russia, but it is difficult to say at this point the extent to which it hears us. The majority may understand what this is about, but they have to obey the toughest dictate.

05.03.2022 - Embassy comment on the fourth anniversary of the Salisbury incident

It has been four years since the so-called ‘poisoning’ of Sergei and Yulia Skripal. Over these years, allegations of Russia’s using chemical weapon in Salisbury were repeated so often by the British authorities that they are now treated as axiom (which needs no proof, as we know) by many in the UK. It didn’t make such allegations any more credible, though.
