Statement of the Russian Embassy concerning a disruption of the work of the diplomatic mission

The unwillingness of the British Government to ensure normal operation and security of the Russian diplomatic mission in London has caused deep concern with the Russian Embassy.

Today (3rd November) a protest action by a group of people interrupted the work of the Embassy as the entrance to the Consular Section was blocked up with a heap of mannequin body parts, while the protestors handcuffed themselves to the gate. As a result, the mission staff and visitors were unable to enter the premises of the Embassy. The security of the Russian diplomatic mission in the UK was compromised. Police officers remained indifferent in the face of the openly provocative and disorderly conduct of the “demonstrators”. Moreover, nuisance callers blocked the Embassy telephone line rendering it impossible to contact the mission for genuine callers.

One is under the impression that this disruptive «protest action» has been thoroughly planned, which is not surprising in the context of the recent official statement in Parliament by Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson encouraging to hold protests outside the Russian Embassy in London.

It’s worth mentioning that today’s manifestation near the Embassy has been accompanied by an ongoing anti-Russian campaign in the media inspired by some statements of the British officials.

The Russian diplomatic mission has forwarded a Note of Protest to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Remarks by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at the "Growing Up Bilingual: Educational Perspectives" seminar, 14 June 2018

Ladies and gentlemen, In today's diverse and multicultural world the importance of language training has become more and more significant. This has a special importance for children from diasporas, including the Russian speaking diaspora in Britain. While living in the English language environment, even kids from families, where Russian is spoken at home, lose language skills without learning Russian at school. This is why we commend supplementary Russian schools, like Znaniye.
