Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks during talks with Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland, Moscow, December 6, 2016

06.12.2016 - Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Our “concerned” French and British colleagues surely know that Aleppo residents are already receiving such aid – not just on paper but in fact – from Russia, through the Defence Ministry, the Hmeymim Centre for Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides and the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

05.12.2016 - Ambassador Yakovenko answers to media question regarding Russia’s efforts in Syria

Question: What is Russia’s position on a draft UNSC resolution on Aleppo recently presented to the Security Council? Answer: We believe that the introduction of this draft is utterly counterproductive. In the coming days experts from Russia and the United States are to begin their work on the withdrawal of all fighters from the eastern part of Aleppo and achieving an agreement on routes and timing of their exit from the city. After that the ceasefire will come into force.

Ladies and gentlemen, A warm welcome to all of you here at the reception to mark the second year of the Eastern Seasons week of events.

03.12.2016 - Russian Embassy Spokesman comment on PMO’s statement on East Aleppo

Question: PMO spokeswoman told Daily Mail that “Russia should use its influence with the Assad regime to stop these appalling atrocities in Aleppo and let humanitarian aid through”. What is your comment on that? Answer: It seems that our British partners prefer living in denial, finding comfort in what is said to be a post-truth world. That is if the reality doesn’t suit their five-year old narrative tant pis for the reality.

03.12.2016 - Comment by the MFA on the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution on North Korea

On November 30, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2321 on strengthening sanctions on the DPRK. This document is a consolidated international response to the fifth nuclear test conducted by North Korea in September in violation of multiple Security Council resolutions. Pyongyang’s provocative actions with respect to nuclear missiles demanded a response in the form of additional severe sanctions. Under the UN Charter, these sanctions are binding for all member states.

03.12.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Moscow, December 1, 2016

Question: In your opinion, will Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States turn a new page in the dialogue between Moscow and Washington? What kind of relations does Russia want to build with the US? Did Moscow help Donald Trump become president, as representatives of the Democratic Party allege? Sergey Lavrov: If you allow me, I would like to begin with the last part of your question. Those who “helped” Donald Trump become president were the US citizens who voted for him on November 8. As President Vladimir Putin has said on a number of occasions, Russia has never sought to influence the election campaign, believing it to be an internal affair for the US. If anybody tried to interfere with the elections, it was the allies of the US. Just read what many European leaders said and wrote about Donald Trump during the campaign.

03.12.2016 - Annual Address of Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, to the Federal Assembly, Moscow, The Kremlin, December 1, 2016

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Good afternoon colleagues, members of the Federation Council, State Duma deputies, citizens of Russia, Today, as usual in these annual addresses, I will speak about our tasks in the economy, the social sector, domestic and foreign policy. This year’s address will focus particularly on the economy, social issues, and domestic policy.

01.12.2016 - Ambassador Yakovenko meets representatives of Russian Quantum Centre

On 28 November 2016 Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko met a delegation of the Russian Quantum Centre headed by its CEO Ruslan Yunusov to discuss plans of holding a EU-Russia-UK conference on quantum technologies. Such a meeting would greatly contribute to the forthcoming Russia-UK Year of Science and Education in 2017 and promote broader international cooperation in the area of quantum technologies.

01.12.2016 - Remarks to the press by Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations, following the Security Council consultations on Syria

Q: Ambassador, the UK and France are drafting a resolution to sanction people linked to chemical weapons attacks… V.Churkin: I hope they keep drafting because they have been speaking about it as an urgent matter for such a long time without producing any drafts. But to be more serious we believe that first of all JIM has been working very hard in a very professional way but they were given a task and put in a situation that would not allow them to produce credible evidence. The only credible thing I think is the fact that terrorists used mustard gas. As for the Syrian Government, we gave you a very detailed expert analysis of their results and we believe they just don’t contain enough information to accuse anybody of anything. I suppose this is one of the reasons why it takes so long to draft a resolution they have been talking about.
