30.04.2014 - What must be done to reduce tensions in Ukraine (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

The situation in Ukraine is tense, though there are signs of diplomatic progress. At the Geneva meeting on April 17, Russia, the US, the EU and the Kiev authorities agreed principles that, if implemented, may lead to de-escalation.


17.04.2014 - Article by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, “Time-honoured friendship and partnership” published in the daily “Thezoy va Vietnam” (“Peace and Vietnam”) on 16 April 2014

In January 2015 Russia and Vietnam will celebrate a remarkable date – 65 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.


17.04.2014 - Answer by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, to the question from the newspaper “Argumenti i fakti”, published on 16 April 2014

Question: Why is Russia so insistent on Ukraine’s federalisation , what does it want, what is the essence of this idea?


09.04.2014 - On federalism, Ukraine, rhetoric and accountability (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

The issue of federalism has become a focal point in the international effort to settle the Ukrainian crises. It started with the EU ill-conceived attempt at solf-landing Ukraine unilaterally into a more positive and sustainable future, presumably, for common good. I’d like to cite two examples of the softening power of federalism.


08.04.2014 - Remarks by Ambassador Yakovenko at the opening of Russia's stand at the London Book Fair-2014

Ladies and Gentlemen! I am delighted to welcome you to the London Book Fair-2014.


07.04.2014 - It's not Russia that is destabilising Ukraine (by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, The Guardian ,Monday, 7 April 2014)

The west has been needlessly whipping up tension – if we don't co-operate soon, chaos may take hold.


03.04.2014 - Why Ukraine needs a new constitution fair to all (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

The current situation in Ukraine is nothing short of a deep social and political crisis. Severe tensions have been unleashed in the country provoked by the leaders of Maidan, a small group of people driven by extremist ideology and intolerance; these tensions threaten the future of Ukraine as a modern democratic European nation.


01.04.2014 - Interview given by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to the programme “Vesti v subbotu s Sergeem Brilyovim”, Moscow, 29 March 2014

Question: After the G7 announced its withdrawal from the G8 a slogan was invented that Russia is in international isolation. The voting at the UN General Assembly was a hundred states “against” Russia. Does this confirm this statement? Sergey Lavrov: Isolation is a term invented by our western partners, who attempt to act on the basis of neo-imperialist nostalgic ambitions. when things don’t go their way, they immediately reach for the option of a “sanctions club”. Time for that has already passed. We should not think about the isolation of partners, but about the involvement of each and all of them working together.


30.03.2014 - Interview by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, given to the programme “Voskresnoye vremya” Moscow, 28 March 2014

Question: The last week has been substantial and hard. You met a representative of the Ukrainian delegation on the side-lines of the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague. This was our first meeting in the current situation at the level of foreign policy agencies. The audience “received” only one picture and your comment on its results. What was this meeting like? What was the tone like? It is clear that only you knew about the readiness or lack of readiness of the parties to agree.


22.03.2014 - Libya impasse: urgent measures needed (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Critical situation unfolding in Libya remains a matter of serious concern.
