13.03.2018 - Press Secretary responds to media question

Q: Can you comment on yesterday’s threats of cyber attacks against Russia? A: Statements by a number of MPs, “Whitehall sources” and “experts” regarding a possible “deployment” of “offensive cyber-capabilities” cause serious concern. Not only is Russia groundlessly and provocatively accused of the Salisbury incident, but apparently, plans are being developed in the UK to strike Russia with cyber weapons. Judging by the statements of the Prime Minister, such a decision can be taken at tomorrow’s meeting of the National Security Council. We invite the British side to once again consider the consequences of such a reckless move.


12.03.2018 - Embassy Press secretary responds to BBC question

Q: Has your mission made any contact with the UK authorities over the wellbeing of Sergey and Julia Skripal? A: Literally the next day after the first reports on the poisoning of Mr Skripal and his daughter the Embassy officially requested the Foreign Office to provide information on their health situation and the investigation. This is important to us since his issue has become quite a negative factor for the relations between our countries due to the unfounded accusations against Russia advanced by the media. British officials don’t provide any additional information and don’t distance themselves from the media campaign. The investigation is being concluded in a non-transparent manner, whenever for the Russian side nor for the public. Quite naturally, this is a source of concern.

Q: Has the Embassy received information from the British authorities upon request on the “Sergei Skripal case”?


06.03.2018 - Embassy’s Press Officer comments on the statement by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson concerning the case Sergei Skripal

We are impressed by the statement of the Foreign Secretary in Parliament today. The Foreign Secretary spoke in such a manner as if the investigation was already over and Russia was found responsible for what had happened in Salisbury. We regret that instead of a proper official clarification on the issue the Foreign Secretary chose to threaten Russia with retribution. Looks like the script of yet another anti-Russian campaign has been already written.


06.03.2018 - Embassy’s Press Officer comments on the incident with Sergei Skripal

Q.: How would you comment the situation with the alleged poisoning of MI6 agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury? A.: The situation regarding the hospitalisation of Sergey Skripal and another person on 4 March, as described by the British media, causes serious concern.


06.03.2018 - An update on Eastern Ghouta

Given the continued media speculation on Russia's role in Eastern Ghouta, and in the light of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's statement of 5 March, accusing Russia of acting contary to UN Security Council resolution 2401, we believe it useful to briefly recapitulate the main facts pertaining to the situation in Eastern Ghouta.


05.03.2018 - Embassy’s Press Officer reply to a question on the situation in Eastern Ghouta

Q: According to the Downing Street spokesperson, Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump “agreed that the overwhelming responsibility for the heart-breaking human suffering lay with the Syrian regime and Russia”. How does it relate to the real situation on the ground and Russia’s efforts in bringing an end to suffering of the population in Eastern Ghouta? A: There are at least three reasons why we cannot accept these allegations. Firstly, the UN Security Council resolution 2401 aimed at alleviating suffering of the people in Eastern Ghouta calls upon all the countries with influence in Syria, including the United Kingdom and the United States, to pressure warring sides to end the fighting.
