12.02.2016 - Alexander Yakovenko for RT

Russia and the United Kingdom - these two powers, for centuries, have been tied into the most complicated relations: enemies at one time, and yet allies and cooperators at another. But now the temperature between the two is steadily going down, with Britain leading the anti-Russian sanctions and, just recently, coming out with allegations of Moscow’s involvement with a death of former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko. What’s pushing London to make such statements? Does the Cold War-like vector of Cameron’s policy resonate with public opinion? How much is this public opinion is shaped by the voice of mainstream media? And, finally, is there a hope for a thaw? We ask the Russian Ambassador to the UK. Alexander Yakovenko is on Sophie&Co today.

12.02.2016 - Opinion: credibility of British Litvinenko Judgment Doubtful (Eurasia Review, By William Dunkerley, February 10, 2016)

A dark cloud of suspicion still hangs over a 2006 British murder mystery. The Litvinenko affair started as a London spy mystery. It made top headlines back in the day. Riveting allegations claimed Alexander Litvinenko died of polonium poisoning ordered by Russian president Vladimir Putin. Now almost ten years later, the mystery has evolved into a government political scandal. After years of false starts and inaction, an official inquiry was finally called in 2015. Getting to the bottom of things was its ostensible purpose.

12.02.2016 - Russian Ministry of Defence reporting on latest developments in Syria

Russian Air Force continues to fulfil its mission in Syria. From the 4th of February 510 sorties performed, 1888 ISIS and other terrorist groups targets engaged. For example, at Al-Qaryatayn–Homs, after 3 hardware columns were detected, an airstrike resulted in elimination of 9 heavy trucks with munitions and more than 40 militants killed. Near al-Ghariyah al-Gharbiyah the ISIS fortification destroyed by a direct hit by a guided bomb. ISIS and their allies suffer high casualties in men and materiel. Only recently, 2 influential field commanders liquidated in Aleppo province, one “Abu Anas Al-Sham” from Jaysh al-Sham terrorist group and “Abu Maher” (“Farid Al-Misri”), the latter – together with his warband. Due to high losses and recent defeats, desertion is rampart among ISIS troops.

11.02.2016 - Opinion: Litvinenko and the Demise of British Justice (by James O'Neill, Dissident voice)

The publication on 21 January 2016 of the report by British Judge Sir Robert Owen on the death of Alexander Litvinenko was predictably seized upon by anti-Russian elements as confirmation of their conviction that Russia in general and President Putin in particular were the personification of modern day evil.
