The events of the passing year have confirmed that normalization of our bilateral political dialogue has become a stable and steady trend. Our relationship has been developing in a sustainable, dynamic manner, moving in the right direction, i.e. serving the mutual interests of Russia and the UK, our citizens.

03.12.2013 - A celebration of cultural links with a long and proud tradition (by Alexander Yakovenko, Russian Ambassador to UK)

There is plenty of evidence that our cultural relationship has always had strong elements of interaction and mutual influence.

29.10.2013 - Briefing of Press Attache of Russian Embassy: "Russia’s G20 Presidency: Outcomes"

Russia’s G20 Presidency, now drawing to a close, was a success. One of the factors that secured this success was that Russia has been able to develop a unifying summit agenda reflecting major aspirations of both developed states and emerging economies. The interests of the least developed countries have found a proper representation as well.
