Briefing by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, for representatives of foreign and Russian mass media Moscow, 28 July 2014

    
 
 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

There have been a lot of addresses from representatives of Russian and foreign mass media, which are accredited in Moscow, lately, all of them asking for an interview. We decided that it would be correct to organise a briefing. Thank you for responding to our invitation

I will not stop in detail on different aspects of the Ukrainian crisis – as far as I understand this topic is the main purpose of our meeting today. You certainly have many facts in your disposal. I will say some words and then you can ask your questions.

We are mainly worried about the problem of settlement, which must be exclusively political, diplomatic and peaceful. Over the last few months the Russian Federation jointly with many partners has undertaken insistent and specific steps in this direction. We are more and more concerned about the negotiability of some of our colleagues, including those, who participated in the achievement of the respective agreements.   Full story Full Story
 

 
 
 
 
Exclusive interview given by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to Russia 24 TV-channel, Moscow, 18 July 2014

    
 
 

Question: I cannot but ask you about the most topical event – the plane of Malaysia Airlines, which was shot down above the territory of Ukraine. How can this affect Russia? Kiev started to immediately accuse our country of supplying air defence systems to the militia. How would you reply to these accusations?

Sergey Lavrov: Our position was stated quite clearly by the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, who requested an independent international investigation from the very beginning. We have been the first to do this. Yesterday, during his phone conversation with the US President Barack Obama, it was Vladimir Putin, who informed the US leader about the Malaysian jet, which had just been shot down. We will insist on an extremely objective, open and independent investigation and will be ready to make our own contribution. We expect that the authorities of the country, in the territory of which this tragedy has taken place, will show their initiative.   Full story Full Story
 

 
 
 
 
Speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and his answers to questions from the mass media during joint press conference summarizing the results of negotiations with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italy, Federica Mogherini, Moscow, 9 July 2014

    
 
 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We have conducted a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Italian Republic, Federica Mogherini. This is not our first contact, we had several contacts on the side-lines of international events, had several phone conversations. However, this is the first visit of Ms. Federica Mogherini to the Russian Federation, which allowed us to exchange opinions on the state of our bilateral relations, the prospects of cooperation between Russia and the European Union, as well as to discuss different international problems, including, primarily, Ukraine.

We noted succession in relations between the Russian Federation and the Italian Republic, as well as the personal contact between the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and the President of the Italian Council of Ministers, Matteo Renzi. We confirmed interest in the promotion of our political dialogue, development of our trade, economic and investment activities, cooperation in the area of culture, tourism and exchanges within the ambit of civil societies.   Full story Full Story
