15.04.2015 - Sweden’s “submarine scare”: time to stop this kid stuff (By Ambassador Yakovenko)

“The public has the right to know”: this phrase is frequently used as a popular motto for the British media. Sometimes though, the media in this country seems not to notice some inconvenient facts. Let’s take last year’s “Baltic submarine scare” as an example. We saw a lot of jingoist rants about Russian submarines allegedly spotted somewhere in Swedish territorial waters. The headlines could horrify even the bravest. In the end no proof could be produced and the anti-Russian ratchet died out.

30.03.2015 - US National Security Strategy – a blueprint for confrontation? (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

In February 2015 the National Security Strategy was adopted by the United States. It calls for containment of ”Russian aggression“, especially with regard to Ukraine.


One of the most important tasks in the field of international security is to free the world from the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction. Russia is constantly advocating for further limitations and reductions of nuclear weapons stockpiles along with strengthening international regimes of arms control and non-proliferation. One of the examples in the field of nuclear disarmament is the Russia-US new START Treaty, which entered into force in 2011. Under this Treaty, the sides committed themselves to limiting their nuclear arsenals by one third compared to the previous agreements.


On 5 March, the international community marked the 45th anniversary of the NPT entry into force.

18.03.2015 - Crimea: one year on (by Ambassador Yakovenko)

A year after the peaceful re-unification of Crimea with Russia I can still hear the voices of some of my British interlocutors, who, for one reason or another, refuse to believe that the events of February-March 2014, already part of history, reflected the will of the Crimean people and were handled by Russia in a legal and appropriate way. Let me try to explain once again. It will be helpful to give some background to dispel the predictable doubts regarding the unprecedented unanimity of the popular vote.
