But I would like to remind you that ties between our country and Scotland are of a long tradition.

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.

30.11.2011 - Article by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko published on 29 November 2011 in the Daily Telegraph (Russia Now supplement)

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.
