Considering the ultimatum issued by Kiev and some Western capitals that elections not be held in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, it would be logical to remind the following.

29.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in connection with U.S. State Department's statement on “harassment” of American diplomats, working in Russia

The “ABC News” stove-piping that was clearly cooked up at the instigation of the State Department about the alleged “psychological pressure” on employees of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and their systematic “intimidation” is groundless and detached from reality.

29.10.2014 - Comment by the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Department on the Memorial NGO

29.10.2014 - Deputy Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Department Yuri Matery answers a question about the use of UAVs by the OSCE Monitoring Mission to Ukraine

Question: The media reported last week that the OSCE began to use Austrian UAVs in Ukraine. The OSCE Chairperson-in-Office said they would also use drones made by other countries, including Russia. What does the OSCE need UAVs for? Answer: The use of UAVs by the OSCE Monitoring Mission to Ukraine was first discussed last summer. The OSCE observers could not properly fulfil their duties under conditions of regular bombing raids, hostilities and the civil war in southeastern Ukraine. It was a deadly risk. The OSCE Secretariat subsequently announced a tender for civilian unmanned aerial vehicles, which the Austrian company Schiebel won.

29.10.2014 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company regarding the birthday of Yevgeny Primakov. Moscow, 28 October 2014

Question: It is generally recognised that with Yevgeny Primakov’s appointment as foreign minister of the Russian Federation, the country’s foreign policy acquired a new identity and consistency, while diplomats regained their dignity. Do you agree with this? What can you say about your work at that time? Sergey Lavrov: I believe that in the not so distant future, historians will formulate the concept of a Primakov Doctrine. His arrival at the Russian Foreign Ministry brought about a U-turn in the nation's foreign policy: it got out of the rut into which its Western partners had tried to push it after the disintegration of the USSR, and embarked on an independent course.
