EMBASSY INFORMS

18.04.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the “overview” of cooperation with Russia prepared by NATO (17 April 2014)

In the last days, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization made some publications, including the document “Russia’s accusations – setting the record straight”, in which NATO attempts to present the causes of the crisis situation in Europe in a biased manner, traditionally shifting the blame to Russia, like it has used to. To be noted, in its current wire-pulling rhetoric NATO has exceeded its propaganda of the times of aggression against Yugoslavia. We will not do as NATO does. We will state facts.

18.04.2014 - Answer by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Alexander Lukashevich, to the question from the mass media about nearest Russian-Japanese contacts

Question: As we know, the Japanese Foreign Minister, Fumio Kishida, planned to visit Russia at the end of April. Do you have information whether this trip will take place? Answer: Indeed, we discussed to possibility to have another session of the Russian-Japanese Intergovernmental Commission for trade and economic issues (Foreign Minister, Fumio Kishida is its co-chair on behalf of Japan) in Moscow that time. However, according to the mutual agreement, when the schedule of bilateral contacts was being updated, it was decided to postpone this session.

17.04.2014 - Speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and his answers to the questions summarising the results of the negotiations with the Deputy Prime Minister of Vietnam, Pham Binh Minh, Hanoi, 16 April 2014

Ladies and Gentlemen, First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Vice Premier of Vietnam, Mr. Pham Binh Minh, for his hospitality and attention to our delegation.

17.04.2014 - Comment by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding statements of the French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, on Ukraine

We were puzzled by another statement by the French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Laurent Fabius, on Ukraine (on Twitter), where he shifts all the blame for the escalation of tensions there onto Russia.

17.04.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the provocations in the Georgian-South Ossetian border

On the 15th April, Russian border guards defending borders between the Republic of South Ossetia and Georgia according to an international agreement, detained there Georgian TV journalists in the South Ossetian territory.

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?

17.04.2014 - Comment by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the aggravation of the situation in the South-East of Ukraine

We are deeply concerned about the forceful operation, which was started by Ukrainian intelligence agencies with support of regular army in South-Eastern regions of Ukraine.

17.04.2014 - Comment by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Alexander Lukashevich, regarding the publication of the report by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on the situation in Ukraine

We should state that the report by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the situation with human rights in Ukraine is unilateral, politicised and does not reflect the real situation in this country.

17.04.2014 - Incident with Russian nationals in South Sudan

Five workers of the Russian company Safinat, constructing an oil refinery became incidental victims on the 14 April as a result of armed confrontation between government forces and units of the armed opposition near Bentiu, the administrative centre of the Unity State in South Sudan.

16.04.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding decisions of the EU Council on the situation in Ukraine

We noted the decisions of the EU Council adopted in the 14 April with regard to the development of the situation in Ukraine. Having presented another “coordinated position”, which is far away from the reality, the European Union has again demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of the processes in Ukraine, and even worse – an absolute lack of desire to understand and acknowledge the causes and motives of the Ukrainian population in South-Eastern regions of this country.

16.04.2014 - Direct Line with Vladimir Putin will be held on April 17 at 12 pm

The annual special Direct Line with Vladimir Putin will be broadcast live by Channel One, Rossiya-1 and Rossiya-24 TV channels, and Mayak, Vesti FM and Radio Rossii radio stations on April 17, 2014 at 12 pm Moscow time.
