I extend my sincere condolences to the people and the Government of India on the passing away of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, former President of India. He will be remembered in Russia and by the international community at large as a highly respected leader at some of the defining moments in modern history. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

30.07.2015 - Comment by the Information and Press Department on a statement by the US Department of State

29.07.2015 - Ambassador Yakovenko writes to David Smith and comments on Chatham House report on Russia

Dear Mr Smith, I am sorry for delay in my response to your letter. I wholly share your concern over the state of the Russo-British relationship. In the first place, Russia's policy in the Ukraine crisis was always reactive. Our Western partners admit that when they accuse us of both improvisation and pursuing a 'grand strategy'. It was not us who started all this destabilising mess. Not many care to have a look at its origins. So, I'll try to set the record straight on some key points.

28.07.2015 - Reception to mark 1000 years since the death of St. Vladimir, Equal-to-the-Apostles

A gala reception was held at the Kremlin on behalf of the President in honour of the 1000th death anniversary of St. Vladimir, Equal-to-the-Apostles. Attending the reception were representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, public and political figures. In 2015 Russia marks the 1000th death anniversary of St. Vladimir, Equal-to-the-Apostles. The church equals the deeds of St. Vladimir the Evangelizer of Russia to those of Christ’s Apostles. In the late 13th – early 14th centuries the Russian Orthodox Church proclaimed Prince Vladimir a Saint Equal to the Apostles. The day of his veneration is the Day of Russia’s Christianization.

Question: Good evening, Mr President. Thank you very much for making the time for this interview.

27.07.2015 - MH-17 tradedy: the way to justice (by Ambassador Yakovenko, for London Evening Standart, full version)

298 persons lost their lives in the sky over Eastern Ukraine a year ago. The least the international community should do is to ensure that justice is done and is seen being done in this horrible incident. This matter is too serious to be used for propaganda purposes and political point-scoring. Security Council already passed its resolution 2166 on 21 July 2014 with Russia's active support. The key objective now is to make full use of its potential of insuring that the two investigations being conducted in the Netherlands are successfully concluded, and proceed in an impartial and transparent fashion.
