28.11.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks at the Russian International Affairs Council’s general meeting, Moscow, November 28, 2017

Mr Ivanov, colleagues, friends, I’m pleased to participate in the Russian International Affairs Council’s general meeting devoted to its performance in 2017. Although the year is not out yet, it is already clear that it was, to put it mildly, by far not the easiest. Conflicts continue to increase. Constructive interstate cooperation is on the decline, unfortunately. Unipolarity throwbacks raise concerns as one centre of international influence wants to act like a hegemon resorting to fast-track decisions, military blackmail, and brute force in order to promote its goals. The situation surrounding the Korean Peninsula remains complex. Turbulence in the Middle East persists. Even though a major blow has been dealt to the terrorists who holed up there, we have so far failed to transform the mixed but generally useful experience gained by various stakeholders in forming a global anti-terrorist coalition under the auspices of the UN, the idea of which, as you are well aware, was advanced by President Putin about two years ago.

Question: Could you comment on the “novelties” in the language policy in Ukraine and the position of the British authorities on this issue? Press Secretary: Kiev is extending its discriminatory policies against ethnic minorities and large groups of the population, among them millions of Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine. In recent years laws on cinematography, language quotas on the television as well as guest performances in Ukraine were passed. This September the law “On education” was adopted, imposing harsh restrictions on the use of minority languages with a view to their full erosion from the educational system by 2020.
