The SCO is indeed successfully developing and strengthening its positions in regional affairs, making a significant contribution to ensuring peace, security and stability in Eurasia. Given that at the end of today’s meeting, Russia will take over the Presidency of the SCO, I would like to outline Russia’s vision of the most promising areas of the organisation’s work in 2019–2020. We believe that

Speech by the Director of the SVR of Russia at the International Moscow conference on security

translated by Scott source: https://cont.ws/@serfilatov/1316761 Sergei Naryshkin: Dear participants of the Conference! Our meeting is taking place against a backdrop of an extremely complex international situation. It is qualitatively different from previous periods of the “cold war” and the brief triumph of American unipolarity. The confrontation between the powers in those years was tense, but generally predictable and regulated by a clear set of rules. In today’s world, the degree

We are not turning a blind eye to the challenging social, economic and humanitarian developments in Venezuela. Still, we

Margarita Simonian’s and Maria Zakharova’s reaction to the rendition of Julian Assange

What happened is this: since the legacy Ziomedia hates Assange and since they were embarrassed by having this Uber-whistle-blower locked away for 7 years for daring to reveal the true nature of the AngloZionst Empire, they did not have anybody in from of the Ecuadorian Embassy when Assange was rendered.  Now they have to humiliate themselves and ask RT (whom they hate and constantly insult) for some footage.  Here is
