29.07.2016 - Syrian crisis needs urgent solutions (By Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

Moscow has repeatedly called on the warring parties in Syria to reconciliate, but militants have continued to violate the cessation of hostilities by shelling villages and attacking the Government troops. As a result, a terrible humanitarian plight has emerged in Aleppo and its suburbs. On July 28 Russia and the Syrian government launched a joint large-scale humanitarian relief operation in this city, establishing three corridors for civilians and one for militants with weapons. This operation that envisages providing food and medical aid in the humanitarian corridors was launched according to President Vladimir Putin’s instructions “solely to ensure the safety of the residents of Aleppo”.

29.07.2016 - Russia-ASEAN: new level of cooperation (By Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

The ASEAN countries remain Russia's primary focus in South-East Asia. Driven by the desire to have partners in developing trade and strengthening security in the region, Russia established relations with ASEAN in 1991 and in 1996 became a full-fledged dialogue partner. We accessed to the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia in 2004. A very important and powerful impetus was given to 20-year ASEAN-Russia cooperation after the Sochi Summit in May 2016.

The multi-year conflict eroding Syria today, due to terrorists fuelled with weapons from the outside, violations and flows of internally displaced persons and refugees, has seen a deterioration in the humanitarian situation in Syria. At the same time, following the establishment of the ceasefire regime, we have seen some progress. Humanitarian access has increased significantly and difficulties are being discussed in the special format of the International Syria Support Group.

26.07.2016 - FM Lavrov’s interview for Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society’s website: Christians in Middle East, situation in Syria

Question: Mr Lavrov, the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society has historical ties with the Middle East, the people living in this internationally significant region – the land of three global religions. The Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society has always pursued noble goals and sought to strengthen Russia’s position in the Middle East. June 3, 2017 will mark 135 years since this ancient society was founded. What do you think of its current activities, including its friendly ties with Middle Eastern people, its contribution to cultural, historical and spiritual heritage, and mainly the phenomenon of “Russian Palestine”? Why do you think the Society has been so long lasting and instrumental in the Middle East as the oldest non-governmental organisation in the over 100 years of its history? Sergey Lavrov: To begin with, I’d like to congratulate all Society members on the upcoming 135th anniversary of the day Alexander III decreed the founding of the organisation following the initiative of many prominent personalities and public figures of the time. This society was designed to promote friendly relations with the people of the region, particularly to create favourable conditions for pilgrims. However, it didn’t just seek to make it possible for Russian people to travel to the holy sites but also to ensure Russia’s presence in the Holy Land, to create the “Russian Palestine” you mentioned.
