25.05.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s response to a media question about the investigation of the death of Nikolay Glushkov

Q: How would you comment on the investigation by British authorities of the death of Mr Nikolay Glushkov? A: Unfortunately, British authorities continue to refuse to cooperate on the investigation of the mysterious death on 12 March in London of former Deputy Director General of “Aeroflot” Mr Nikolay Glushkov. On 24 April, the Embassy sent to the Home Office an official request of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation on legal assistance in the criminal case on the death of Mr Glushkov. However, there has been no reply. This amounts to a disregard by the British side of their obligations under the European Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters of 1959.

24.05.2018 - The Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum 2018

Today in Saint Petersburg, the traditional International Economic Forum will start its work. SPIEF is one of the key international discussion platforms for the global and regional economic trends and challenges. Heads of states and governments, prominent public leaders, heads of international organizations and major companies, leading world experts and analysts as well as numerous media representatives attend the event. The last year’s SPIEF was a record high in terms of the number of participants – over 14 thousand people. 475 investment agreements totaling $30 bn were signed.


23.05.2018 - Embassy Press Officer comments on Yulia Skripal’s video address

We are glad to have seen Yulia Skripal alive and well. The statement she read out contains new information. However, the video shown only strengthens our concerns as to the conditions in which she is being held. Obviously, Yulia was reading a pre-written text. More than that, judging by quite a few elements, the text was a translation from English and had been initially written by a native English-speaker.


21.05.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a media question concerning a new report on Russia by the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee

Q: Today the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee published a report “Moscow’s Gold: Russian Corruption in the UK”. How would you comment on that? A: We are carefully studying this report and its recommendations. Meanwhile, one cannot help but notice at first sight that it is another anti-Russian undertaking by the parliamentary committee aimed at supporting the UK claims to play a leading role in the Western bloc to “deter Russia”. The 2015 National Security Strategy, Prime Minister’s Banquet Speech in November 2017, unsubstantiated accusations against Russia of poisoning Sergei and Yulia Skripal, the “fusion doctrine” outlined on 1 May by National Security Adviser Sir Mark Sedwill are all integral parts of the reckless policy of UK political leadership against Russia.
