It is a pleasure to greet you at the meeting devoted to Scotland. We all remember since our childhood an image of beautiful Northern region created by poets and writers. But I would like to remind you that ties between our country and Scotland are of a long tradition. There is a long historic list of names and events which reflects friendship between the two nations but it is the trade, or investment as we call it now, which have brought the Russians and Scots together for centuries.


Dear friends! I am happy to welcome the visitors of our website and would like to use this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We will remember 2011, which is almost over, as a period of changes in the world happening at an increasing speed, coinciding with more turbulence in international relations. The world economy was being negatively influenced by crisis symptoms which affected almost everyone. At the same time I would like to note that bilateral relations, political and cultural ties, trade and economic cooperation between our countries are becoming more sustainable. The remarkable pace of the development of political contacts that has been achieved in 2011, their high level is proof of it. Still, there is a lot to be done. I am sure that the Russian-British relations have a bright future.I hope that the New Year will fulfill your expectations and bring you success and prosperity. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Reappraising our values in international relations This year has been replete with important, and sometimes historic events, globally and regionally, notably the Arab Spring and the eurozone crisis. New and ever more convincing evidence has shown that a radical transformation of global governance is taking place. The co-ordinates of international relations have been shifting towards development issues central to world politics. At the same time, the kind of transformation that reflects the endgame of processes that began at the turn of the Seventies is gaining pace, whether we look at the Arab world or the crisis of liberal capitalism.

Nuclear power after Fukushima is a topic being discussed on many professional forums. Several governments, facing pressure from NGOs and the public, have had to declare that they will abandon nuclear energy. But for the time being, the situation is virtually unchanged: plants are still in operation and will remain so at least through the 2020s, including those in Germany and Switzerland. And nuclear plants that were being built at the time of Fukushima are still being built. Some countries (the UK, South Korea and Saudi Arabia) plan to generate a bigger proportion of their energy through nuclear power.

In this regard, I note with pleasure that the topic of the conference “Time for Growth: New Strategies – New Directions” reflects the positive processes, which, as far as I can judge, are taking place in the Russian banking industry and economy in general.

21.11.2011 - Interview by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko to Menu Magazine

The residence of the Russian ambassador in Great Britain is located in the prestigious Kensington Palace Gardens, the street of embassies and billionaires. Private vehicles are prohibited to enter for security reasons. Although the armed security guards let London taxis past the barriers – evidently it is believed that real terrorists don’t drive in taxis to commit acts of terrorism.
