24.09.2016 - Why not give the Syrians a break? (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RBTH)

It was in the fertile soil of the ongoing civil conflict that ISIS expanded to Syria. Ever since, Russia has been urging the establishment of a common front of the international community against terrorists, including the al-Qaeda linked Jabhat al-Nusra, which despite its recent rebranding continues to be a terrorist organization. We agree on that with our U.S. partners, as testified to by the Lavrov-Kerry accords, reached in Geneva along the lines agreed by presidents Putin and Obama. Russia insists on declassifying this deal, so that there is not the slightest whiff of secret diplomacy about it. Terrorists played a key and leading role in the fight against government forces.

24.09.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks at the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, New York, September 23, 2016

A year ago, from the same rostrum at the anniversary session of the UN General Assembly, plenty of accurate assessments were made of the situation at this crucial stage of international development. The main theme was the recognition that humankind, in transitioning from a bipolar and unipolar international order to an objectively evolving polycentric, democratic system of international relations, is faced with challenges and threats that are common to all and that can only be overcome by joint efforts. It was rightly noted that there is a pressing need to change the philosophy governing relations between states and do away with attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of states and impose development models on countries and nations.

23.09.2016 - Heroes Wanted!

Over the last couple of years Russian Embassy has made a big effort to present an Ushakov medal in person to each and every surviving veteran of the Arctic Convoys. Today, after some 3000 awardings, only about 160 of them are waiting for a medal, which will be presented in the next few weeks. However, despite all our efforts and those of the UK Ministry of Defence, we have been unable to locate some 150 veterans. We are publishing a list of names, with their last known area of residence, in the hope that our readers will be able to trace them.

21.09.2016 - Migrant and refugee crisis: we need to address its root causes (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

Seeking solutions to the problem of migrants and refugees, fleeing their homes due to wars and domestic armed conflicts, is one of the pressing issues on the international agenda. We share the common opinion that the most reliable way to successfully resolve the refugee crisis is to address the causes. A successful response to migration challenges requires, first of all, prevention and settlement of conflicts through political means, coordinated efforts of the global community in political, socio-economic, humanitarian and other areas, as well as building interaction between humanitarian aid and development assistance. It is necessary to exclude external interference in internal issues by other countries, which turns civil conflicts into proxy wars.

21.09.2016 - UN convoy attack: questions to be answered (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

The attack on the UN aid convoy near Aleppo has been widely covered in UK, prominently featuring the assertions that either Russia or the Syrian Government was behind the tragic event. Even though media did report the statement of the Russian Ministry of Defence that both Russian and Syrian warplanes didn’t carry out strikes against the humanitarian convoy, they omitted a number of details pointing to a highly suspicious nature of this incident.

21.09.2016 - Russian MFA comment regarding the attack on humanitarian convoy in Syria

The circumstances of the incident of attacks on aid convoy in Urm al-Kubra, west of Aleppo, Syria on 19 September, 8 pm local time are still being clarified. Under fire exposure, the source of which is still not clear, were warehouses where a humanitarian convoy previously agreed between the official Damascus and the United Nations was to be unloaded. Among the staff of Syrian Arab Red Crescent accompanying the convoy, there are dead and wounded. 18 trucks were seriously damaged.
