20.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a question on Russia’s response to G7 statement on Skripals’ case

Q: How did Russia react to a recent statement of G7 foreign ministers accusing Russia of poisoning of Sergei Skripal and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury? A: We are disappointed by another groundless statement on Skripals’ case, this time made on behalf of all G7 members. It is regrettable that G7 members allow themselves to be drawn into an anti-Russian campaign built on hollow accusations.

18.04.2018 - Embassy press secretary answers media question on Ofcom investigations regarding RT

Q: Do you have a comment on the Ofcom statement regarding pressure on the channel RT? A: We have taken note of UK Government’s exercise of pressure on media, bordering on censorship, regarding the coverage of the Salisbury poisoning. In particular, the “Sunday Times” reported on 8 April that the National Security Council staff “had seized control” over the media response of the Salisbury incident. The media manipulation by the authorities is corroborated by multiple “leaks” of new versions of the incident which could not have appeared in any other way. Highly likely the apparent lack of interest from media outlets to gain access Sergei and Yulia Skripal, the doctors treating them and many other involved parties, in spite of evident public interest, testifies to the same.

18.04.2018 - Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov’s interview with TASS News Agency, April 15, 2018

Question: State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert claimed that Russia failed to live up to its 2013 commitments to assist in the elimination of chemical stockpiles in Syria. What is your comment? Sergey Ryabkov: The elimination process included close cooperation between the countries concerned, including the US, and went on under strict international control. At certain stages, Moscow and Washington were coordinating their moves in real time in the course of telephone conferences and continuous contact at various levels.
