22.10.2014 - What Ambassador says in Foreign Office on ISIS (Ambassador Yakovenko, for Russia Today)

Russia firmly supports the efforts of the Iraqi government to combat terrorism in all its aspects. It is necessary to unite the efforts of the country’s patriotic political movements and parties to confront the common threat posed by the Islamic State terrorist group.

22.10.2014 - Reply by Alexander Lukashevich, Spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to media question regarding the Der Spiegel publication

Question: Germany’s Der Spiegel weekly magazine has published a sensational story that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was allegedly downed by the “pro-Russian separatists,” quoting an anonymous report by the BND, the German Intelligence Service. Some politicians have immediately grasped at this theory. What does Moscow think about this ruse? Answer: Supposing that Der Spiegel’s quoting of the BND report is authentic, we cannot but feel surprised that the BND so easily discloses information whose accuracy cannot be confirmed. The Russian side has repeatedly insisted that all data relating to the tragedy should be immediately submitted to the concerned board of inquiry. This is precisely what the Russian Defence Ministry has done, submitting its factual materials to The Hague.

21.10.2014 - Remarks by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during an open lecture on Russia’s current foreign policy, Moscow, 20 October 2014

21.10.2014 - Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with NTV, 19 October 2014

Question: How would you assess your talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris? Were there any tense moments? Sergey Lavrov: Our relations have been tense because of the basic issues, which we seriously differ on, but which we have been discussing and trying to settle, and also because of the current situation that has developed for obvious reasons. However, I again sensed that Mr Kerry was willing to search for positive issues that would boost our relations, and also solutions to the issues on which we differ.

21.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia in connection with the incorrect publications in the media on the anti-terror cooperation between Russia and the United States in the context of the events in the Middle East
