04.07.2015 - International community should concentrate on fighting our common threat – terrorism (by Ambasssador Yakovenko, for RT)

An objective analysis of the current situation and contacts with countries of the MENA region reveal growing concern both in the region and beyond over the terrorist activities of the ISIS and other radical groups practicing violent extremism. ISIS is spilling into Afghanistan and looking at Central Asia. As available evidence shows, acts of terror in Europe are also directly linked with ISIS. Therefore, the common interest in the dace of this global danger should prevail over geopolitical schemes and national self-interest. Differences can always be settled by way of dialogue.

03.07.2015 - BRICS: New way of partnership (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for RT)

BRICS is a product of the dynamic development of globalization and new centres of economic growth and political influence. It aligns interests of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa and consolidates their positions in building a fairer and more balanced international order that reflects a polycentric nature of today’s international political, economic and cultural affairs. Critics of BRICS prefer to underline the differences of its member-states in economic, historical, cultural and civilizational terms that allegedly prevent them from building a sustainable XX century entangling alliance. I would like to disappoint them.
