EMBASSY INFORMS

23.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding pre-election controversy in the Republic of Moldova

A recent ruling by the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Moldova has raised serious concerns ahead of the 30 November parliamentary elections. The judges held that only European integration is in keeping with the country’s constitutional identity, while any other political course “is a priori unconstitutional.”

23.10.2014 - Opening remarks by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at a meeting with the Youth Public Chamber of Russia, Moscow, 22 October 2014

Mr Surovtsev, friends, I’m very excited about this opportunity. Thank you for the invitation. I believe it is critically important to promote contact with civil society. This is important for all areas of focus and activity of our state, a fact that is constantly emphasised by President Putin. This principle is absolutely applicable to diplomacy.

23.10.2014 - On the London Session of the Moscow Exchange Forum

The Moscow Exchange annual forum took place on 22 October 2014 in London with participation of representatives of Russian, UK and international financial institutions.

22.10.2014 - What Ambassador says in Foreign Office on ISIS (Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Russia firmly supports the efforts of the Iraqi government to combat terrorism in all its aspects. It is necessary to unite the efforts of the country’s patriotic political movements and parties to confront the common threat posed by the Islamic State terrorist group.

22.10.2014 - Reply by Alexander Lukashevich, Spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to media question regarding the Der Spiegel publication

Question: Germany’s Der Spiegel weekly magazine has published a sensational story that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was allegedly downed by the “pro-Russian separatists,” quoting an anonymous report by the BND, the German Intelligence Service. Some politicians have immediately grasped at this theory. What does Moscow think about this ruse? Answer: Supposing that Der Spiegel’s quoting of the BND report is authentic, we cannot but feel surprised that the BND so easily discloses information whose accuracy cannot be confirmed. The Russian side has repeatedly insisted that all data relating to the tragedy should be immediately submitted to the concerned board of inquiry. This is precisely what the Russian Defence Ministry has done, submitting its factual materials to The Hague.

22.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the statements by Deputy Secretary General of NATO Alexander Vershbow

We have noted the latest in a series of anti-Russian statements made by Deputy Secretary General of NATO Alexander Vershbow.

22.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia on the discovery of chemical weapons in Iraq

An article in The New York Times drew our attention. Citing official sources and until recently classified documents of the US Department of Defence, the article talks about the discovery and secret destruction by the occupying coalition forces in Iraq in 2004-2011 of up to 5,000 different chemical munitions produced during the Iran-Iraq conflict, including those produced using technology provided by Western countries.

21.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia on the decision of Ukraine to join the EU sanctions to ban the entry of Transnistria leadership into the territory of the European Union

We express our concern in connection with the decision of Ukraine to join the European Union’s sanctions on visa restrictions – which are, in fact, limiting the freedom of movement – with regard to some former leaders of Transnistria.

21.10.2014 - Remarks by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during an open lecture on Russia’s current foreign policy, Moscow, 20 October 2014

Mr Nikonov, friends, First of all, I’d like to thank you for the invitation, which I was very pleased to accept. It’s in our interest to discuss in as much detail as possible the issues that directly affect the Russian people and the national development plans, as well as issues that concern the international situation and the future world order with representatives of various political forces, primarily, the leading party, United Russia.

21.10.2014 - Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with NTV, 19 October 2014

Question: How would you assess your talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris? Were there any tense moments? Sergey Lavrov: Our relations have been tense because of the basic issues, which we seriously differ on, but which we have been discussing and trying to settle, and also because of the current situation that has developed for obvious reasons. However, I again sensed that Mr Kerry was willing to search for positive issues that would boost our relations, and also solutions to the issues on which we differ.

21.10.2014 - Address by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to the Second Plenary Session of the 10th АSЕМ summit, Europe-Asia Partnership in Addressing Global Matters in an Inter-Connected World, Milan, Italy, 16 October 2014

21.10.2014 - Press statement on the Russian-Chinese Interagency Consultations on international Information Security

21.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia in connection with the incorrect publications in the media on the anti-terror cooperation between Russia and the United States in the context of the events in the Middle East

In connection with the reports in the media that Sergey Lavrov and John Kerry allegedly agreed at the 14 October meeting in Paris to share reconnaissance information on the fight against terrorism and that Russia will take part in training and consulting the Iraqi security forces, we have to make the following clarifications.
