14.08.2017 - Russian Embassy’s comment on Malcolm Rifkind’s piece in The Times of 14 August 2017

We are not surprised by the former tory foreign and defense secretary’s attempt at finding some common ground between a post-Brexit Britain and the EU. But why at Russia’s expense?! Napoleon’s "nation of shopkeepers" and charges of "bloodymindedness" had nothing to do with Russia. And if all of history is taken into account, one could conclude that it was Russia’s participation in settlement of European quarrels, like two world wars, that ensured the right outcomes. WWI was a common failure of all European powers, with Russia the least interested party having suffered the most. As to WWII, it seems the West cannot disown Nazism enough.


14.08.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to questions at the Terra Scientia on Klyazma River National Educational Youth Forum, Vladimir Region, August 11, 2017

Thank you for such a warm welcome. I have been invited for the third time running. I am very pleased to receive these invitations because it is very important for international relations professionals to talk to young people who are interested in diverse issues. All the more so since this forum has gathered sociologists and political scientists – professions that are very closely intertwined and, I believe, necessary to figure out what life is about, including international life.


14.08.2017 - 72 UNGA : Only diplomatic settlement can bring peace to the Middle East and North Africa

We believe that there is no alternative to a diplomatic settlement of conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa. Collective counter-terrorism efforts in the region should go in parallel. Russia contributes to a peaceful settlement in Syria by supporting the inter-Syrian dialogue in Geneva. The future of the Syrian Government must be determined by Syrians themselves, while maintaining public administration and secular and multicultural nature of the Syrian State. It is critically important to continue the Astana process aimed at de-escalation and promotion of political settlement. We oppose any attempts to politicize the humanitarian issues, blaming only the Syrian Government for the situation in the country.


13.08.2017 - Russian-Abkhazian talks

President Vladimir Putin and President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadjimba held talks in Pitsunda, Abkhazia.


12.08.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to questions at the Terra Scientia on Klyazma River National Educational Youth Forum, Vladimir Region, August 11, 2017

Good afternoon, Thank you for such a warm welcome. I have been invited for the third time running. I am very pleased to receive these invitations because it is very important for international relations professionals to talk to young people who are interested in diverse issues. All the more so since this forum has gathered sociologists and political scientists – professions that are very closely intertwined and, I believe, necessary to figure out what life is about, including international life.


12.08.2017 - Press release on Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov’s meeting with Louay Hussein, leader of the Building the Syrian State movement

On August 11, Special Presidential Representative for the Middle East and Africa and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov received Louay Hussein, leader of the Building the Syrian State movement.


11.08.2017 - 72 UNGA: Broad anti-terrorism front to be created

Russia consistently supports the creation of a broad anti-terrorism front involving all countries in the fight against terrorism, with the UN's central and coordinating role, and in line with the principles and norms of international law. We believe that establishing a counter-terrorism coordinator's post and office under the UN Secretariat would serve these goals.


10.08.2017 - 72 UNGA: Glorification of Nazism must stop

At the UN we have firmly and consistently asserted the principle of inadmissibility of revision of history, the results of World War II. Within this context and as part of the fight against all forms and manifestations of racism, discrimination and xenophobia, Russia will resubmit the UNGA draft resolution on “Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fueling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”. It enjoys increasing support from a substantial majority of the UN Member States.


10.08.2017 - Press release on Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s visit to the Republic of Indonesia

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made a working visit to the Republic of Indonesia on August 8-9.


09.08.2017 - 72 United Nations General Assembly: The UN has no alternative

The 72nd session of the UN General Assembly is meant to reaffirm the central and coordinating role of the UN in global affairs. The UN enjoys its unique legitimacy and remains the sole universal organization. Any attempts to undermine the UN's authority are extremely dangerous and may lead to a collapse of the entire post-war system of international relations.
